Here is Lucille Hegamin and her Blue Flame Syncopators singing "He may be Your Man, But he comes to see me Sometimes" on a Puritan Record from the early 1920's. Hegamin was the 2nd African American Blues singer to Record after Mamie Smith in 1920.Here is the interesting story behind the Fowler/Perry Bradford Connection.
In 1922 Fowler wrote one of the hit songs of the year He may be your man (but he comes to see me sometimes)—which was recorded by at least six different artists. By 1923 he had a flourishing recording career, both on wax and pianoroll. In 1922 Fowler sold the copyright on He may be your man to Perry Bradford, who was based in New York.. Fowler's legal problem stemmed from the fact that he had already sold the rights on this song to the Chicago-based Ted Browne Music Company.It was not an uncommon practice. During the 1920s music publishers ripped off musicians—and especially poorly educated black ones—by paying derisory sums in exchange for all the royalties from their compositions. The musicians, for their part, often sold the same songs to different publishers.Normally this was only a serious problem if the song became a hit, as it did with Fowler's song. The result was that Ted Browne sued Perry Bradford for the royalties. By the time the case came to court there was $10,000 at stake, which gives some idea of how popular Fowler's song was. Both Fowler and another pianist-composer, Spencer Williams, testified on Bradford's behalf. But the local newspaper the Clipper later reported on 31 January 1923: "Williams and Fowler admitted that they had committed perjury and made false affidavits at the instigation of Bradford." As a result Bradford was sentenced to jail for four months.
