Recorded in 1924. Priscilla Stewart is one of these female blues singers that appear out of the mist to recorded a batch of songs and then disappeared from which she came. She didn't seem to be part of the vaudeville circuit -- her singing style is refrained and modest and she does not appear in any newspaper advertisements or theater reviews. She recorded all of her songs with the great Jimmy Blythe who most likely also discovered her and got Paramount to record her. Her recorded sales were modest at best -- she did record at 14 sessions, but each session only contained two issued sides at the most.
