Rosa Lee Hill
She married Napoleon Hill, the self-help writer, in 1937, after he divorced his wife Florence in 1935. She assisted him in writing one of his better known books, Think and Grow Rich, published in 1937. Their marriage ended in divorce in 1940, and the profits of Think and Grow Rich went with her, per their pre-nuptial agreement, written when he had no money.
Her album, Rosa Lee Hill and Friends, was part of Fat Possum's campaign to reissue the recordings made by George Mitchell. It included Hill's niece, Jessie Mae Hemphill, as well as Jim Bunkley, Catherine Porter, Will Shade, Essie Mae Brooks, Precious Bryant, and Lottie Kate.
Hill played music that was in the tradition of north Mississippi, singing acoustic blues that made use of subtly varied repetition. The daughter of Sid Hemphill, her song "Bullyin' Well", which was recorded by Alan Lomax, has been included on a number of releases over the years.
