Son Bonds


A co-employee of Sleepy John Estes and Hammie Nixon, Bonds played quite definitely within the same rural Brownsville design how the Estes-Nixon group popularized within the ’20s and ’30s. Curiously, either Estes or Nixon (but under no circumstances both of these together) performed on most of Bonds’s recordings. The music to 1 of Bonds’s tracks, “Back again and Aspect Blues” (1934), became a typical blues melody when John Lee “Sonny Boy” Williamson from close by Jackson, TN, utilized it in his traditional “HELLO, (Small) School Young lady” (1937). Based on Nixon, Bonds was shot to loss of life, while seated on his entrance porch, by way of a nearsighted neighbor who mistook him for another guy.
