Willie Lane

North Tx bluesman Willie Street recorded 6 sides (“Along Building K.C. Series,” “Prowlin’ Surface Hog,” “WAY TOO MANY Females Blues,” “Howling Wolfe Blues,” and two will take of “Dark Kitty Rag”) for Dallas-based Talent Information between 1934 and 1949. He might have already been the same Willie Street who also documented a monitor for the Library of Congress in 1934, however the proof is normally uncertain. He was created in 1897, most likely in San Antonio, and resided from 1910 until his loss of life in 1976 in the Fort Worthy of, TX, area. It had been thought for a while that he was the next guitarist on recordings fellow Texan Crazy Paper Smith do in 1935, but Street claimed within an interview before his loss of life that although he fulfilled Smith, and discovered several electric guitar chords from him, he hardly ever documented with him.
