ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
TEENY TUCKER PUT ON YOUR RED DRESS BABY

1. Church House Prayer- I needed to find a sacred place that offered a spiritual space of rescue. My emotional need for a second voice, a divine intervention for hope, and a place of internal resolve may have to come from a private one-on-one moment with a higher power that you can only get from the church house. This song was written to let you know there is a scared place to go when love falls apart. My emotional need to hear a second voice which may need to come from a higher calling inside a church house.

2. Love Don’t Hurt- Love can be chaotic but love shouldn’t hurt and bear no pain. True love should get you through the wind and the rain.

3. Learn How To Love Me- There are events, time, and space in relationships that two people share and invoke love to one another. Sometimes love has to be rebuilt. Why are we losing that excitement, that first electrical high we felt in the beginning? Is there a second chance to get it back on track? Please, just learn how to love me all over again.

4. I Sing The Blues- There are many undiscovered 20th Century classic blues women who sing the blues, drawing crowds at the tent shows, vaudevilles’ and theaters giving women a voice. Blues women like Etta James, and KoKo Taylor, and many others were passed the female “blues torch”. I guess the torch is in my hands now and it is true, my daddy did sing the blues to my mama and now I sing the blues to you.

5. Heart, Mind, and Soul- There are times when the pain of broken love can divide your heart, your mind, and your soul. In order to heal you must not confuse the functionality of the three. Should you just stay or should you just go? Should you listen to them all your heart, your mind and your soul?

6. One Kind Favor- What you hold in your hand is a direct result of my life experience over the past year. This project reflects original songs talking about my broken heart and tumultuous love relations being on life support. Just when I needed to put on my red dress go out on the town and dance my heartbreak away, I was honored to get the call from the Blues Foundation in Memphis, TN that my father Tommy Tucker’s 1964 classic R&B song “Hi Heel Sneakers” would be inducted into the 2017 Blues Hall of Fame. Over 100 artists have recorded “Hi Heel Sneakers”. After the call, my heart fluttered and my soul felt at rest knowing that the day has finally arrived. “Hi Heel Sneakers” would finally get the accolades it deserved! During the acceptance speech on behalf of me and my family, I thought about what I would say. Since I didn’t write anything down, I spoke from my heart. Boy did my heart serve me that day for more than just pumping blood through my body. I shared a recent memory of my stepmother’s passing and the day she was buried in the same cemetery as my Dad. I told the crowd about my sister and I circled the cemetery several times looking for my father’s grave that I remembered sits at the bottom of a hill. I told them after it rains his grave would be covered with mud. I told them when I found his grave and we kneeled together to clean the mud off with a bottle of water and paper towels. It was the moment that I could hear in my head the words from Blind Lemon Jefferson; one kind favor I ask of you, please see that my grave is kept clean. For a moment, I felt like I was the only one in the auditorium that night. You could hear a pin drop and perhaps there should have been multiple boxes of tissue. A special thank you to the Blues Foundation and everyone who so graciously played a role in celebrating my father’s song into the Blues Hall of Fame.

7. Put On Your Red Dress Baby- This up-tempo twelve-bar blues is part of the tribute to my father’s ‘Hi Heel Sneakers’ inducted in 2017 Blues Hall of Fame. My father would be honored! I got on my red dress daddy, I got my wig hat on my head, he better bring his boxing I know he knows I’m going to knock um dead!

8. Rearview Mirror- There are times, when love between two people can’t be sustained. You must move on and don’t look back in the rearview mirror, you got to keep moving ahead.

9. Crack The Door- We loved, we embraced our differences in honor and in truth. Once the communication stops, the space we share becomes toxic and avoided. Even when we walk into the room we both occupy, we don’t talk, we no longer see eye to eye. It’s hot, steams coming from the floor will someone please crack the door?

10. From The Skies- When you lean heavily on a mentor or someone you admire that lends a path of light to your musical talent, you shall never forget the magical contribution they made in developing your young desire to play blues on your guitar. This young boy was Robert Hughes who at eight years old was inspired by the six strings sounds of BB King and later Jimi Hendrix. Robert and I sat down one evening and he told me the influences these great bluesmen and their guitar talent had on his life and there you have it “From the Skies”.

11. Jump Back- So it’s been said Blues encompasses many feelings from joy to sadness. There are moments you need to shuck off sadness, get to the party and have a good time. When love is broken, there should be a place you can go to be restored, have some fun and revive your broken spirit! Yes, jump back in to gear baby!

12. I’d Rather Go Blind- ORIGINAL LONG VERSION

13. I’d Rather Go Blind- This song was first recorded by the late great Etta James. It is a fans favorite when we perform this one. After the performance they want to know if this song is on any cd. Well now you have it. I can’t sing it like Etta James, KoKo Taylor or even Beyonce. I can only sing it like Teeny Tucker feels it….is that alright? All I know is, I’d rather be a blind girl then to see the man I love walk away with another women. It is my pleasure to finally oblige the fans with this classic full and shorter radio version.
