Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Moses "Whispering" Smith (January 25, 1932 - April 28, 1984) was an American swamp blues harmonicist and singer. He recorded tracks including "A Thousand Miles from Nowhere" and "Texas Flood," and worked with both Lightnin' Slim and Silas Hogan. He was inducted into the Louisiana Blues Hall of Fame. Smith was born in Union Church, Mississippi. In the 1960s, Smith's harmonica playing accompanied recordings by swamp blues notables Lightnin' Slim and Silas Hogan, before he was able to record some tracks of his own making. At this time he worked alongside the Crowley, Louisiana based record producer, J. D. "Jay" Miller, and his output was released by Excello Records. His singles included "Mean Woman Blues," "I Tried So Hard," and "Don't Leave Me," plus the instrumental tracks "Live Jive" and "Hound Dog Twist."
