  • Bessie Smith - Careless Love Blues

    3:30

    Columbia 14083-D Recorded 5/26/1925 New York, New York. Song Written by Will Handy (lyricist (W.C. Handy).
    Bessie Smith (vocalist)
    Louis Armstrong (instrumentalist : cornet)
    Charlie Green (instrumentalist : trombone)
    Fred Longshaw (instrumentalist : piano)

    Careless Love is a traditional song, with several popular blues versions.
    The death referenced in an old version was the son of a Kentucky governor. Although published accounts have cited 1926 as the copyright date, W. C. Handy copyrighted Loveless Love in 1921 under Pace & Handy Music Co.


    Bessie Smith (April 15, 1894 -- September 26, 1937) was an American blues singer.
    Sometimes referred to as The Empress of the Blues, Smith was the most popular female blues singer of the 1920s and 1930s. She is often regarded as one of the greatest singers of her era and, along with Louis Armstrong, a major influence on subsequent jazz vocalists.
    Bessie died from injuries sustained in an automobile accident.
    Smith's grave was unmarked until a tombstone was erected on August 7, 1970, paid for by the singer Janis Joplin and Juanita Green, who as a child had done housework for Smith.

    Lyrics:
    Love, oh love, oh careless love
    You've fly through my head like wine
    You've wrecked the life of a many poor girl
    And you nearly spoiled this life of mine
    Love, oh love, oh careless love
    In your clutches of desire
    You've made me break a many true vow
    Then you set my very soul on fire
    Love, oh love, oh careless love
    All my happiness bereft
    You've filled my heart with weary old blues
    Now I'm walkin', talkin' to myself
    Love, oh love, oh careless love
    Trusted you now, it's too late
    You've made me throw my old friend down
    That's why I sing this song of hate
    Love, oh love, oh careless love
    Night and day, I weep and moan
    You brought the wrong man into this life of mine
    For my sins, till judgment I'll atone

    Lyrics:

    I'd rather be the devil, to be that woman man
    I'd rather be the devil, to be that woman man
    Aw, nothin' but the devil, changed my baby's mind
    Was nothin' but the devil, changed my baby's mind
    I laid down last night, laid down last night
    I laid down last night, tried to take my rest
    My mind got to ramblin', like a wild geese
    From the west, from the west
    The woman I love, woman that I loved
    Woman I loved, took her from my best friend
    But he got lucky, stoled her back again
    But he got lucky, stoled her back again

    Hubert Sumlin - Blues Guitar Boss SACD, Buy: Hubert is the heaviest, most original guitar player I've ever heard in my live - Stevie Ray Vaughan Lyrics:
    Sometimes I’m right,
    Sometimes I‘m wrong, baby,
    But I tell you what I’m goin’ to do, look her, little girl,
    I can’t be right always,
    I can’t be wrong always neither, baby,
    Ma Girl you’r ma baby, sugar.
    Mmm I love you girl,
    Ahhh you are ma baby,
    All my problems I had,
    Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby it was yours just it was like
    mine, sugar.
    Its my problem, baby, too
    Little girl, all of my love, all of my love is for you,
    sugar,
    Is love here?
    Little girl, little girl I think I am right.
    [Piano rift]

    All the time I love you,

    Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby with the love you bring me.
    Ummm but I love you girl,
    Little girl that is why I am not going to let you be, baby.
    Mmmm Baby, I love love you love you little girl that’s why I
    have got to be right
    [Guitar rift]
    So why cant I be right, but I know….

    Well-known for his role in Chicago blues, Sumlin performed with Howlin’ Wolf from 1955 until the singer’s death in 1976, after which he continued performing with the late blues legend’s band under the moniker The Wolf Pack and released a string of solo albums to varying degrees of success.
    His playing style, characterized by sudden bursts of noise, start-stop patterns and use of sustain, was achieved without the use of a traditional guitar pick and was a formative influence on the style of The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards. His frequent use of abrasive, shattering noise also inspired rock icons like Jimi Hendrix to experiment with guitar tone.

    Music Video I made in Honor of the Historical marker dedication today in Beaumont, Texas December 15, 2010

    From the Houston Chronicle:
    BEAUMONT, Texas — Texas bluesman and gospel singer Blind Willie Johnson is being remembered with a historic marker decades after his death.

    A ceremony was planned Wednesday in Beaumont to honor Johnson, who died in 1945, with a Texas Historical Marker.

    The Beaumont Enterprise reports a death certificate indicates Johnson, born in 1897 and blinded as a child, was buried in a pauper's cemetery in the Pear Orchard neighborhood of Beaumont.

    Supporters of the traveling singer and minister set up the Blind Willie Johnson Memorial Fund to help honor the musician and his recordings from the late 1920s to the early 1930s.

    Working from seven to eleven every night,
    It really makes life a drag, I don't think that's right.
    I've really been the best, the best of fools, I did what I could. (Yeah)
    'Cause I love you, baby, How I love you, darling, How I love you, baby,
    My beloved little girl, little girl.
    But baby, Since I've Been Loving You (yeah). I'm about to lose my worried mind, oh, yeah.

    Everybody trying to tell me that you didn't mean me no good.
    I've been trying, Lord, let me tell you, Let me tell you I really did the best I could.
    I've been working from seven to eleven every night, I said It kinda makes my life a drag
    Lord, that ain't right...
    Since I've Been Loving You, I'm about to lose my worried mind. (Watch out!)

    Don't you hear, Don't you hear them falling?

    Do you remember mama, when I knocked upon your door?
    I said you had the nerve to tell me you didn't want me no more, yeah
    I open my front door, hear my back door slam,
    You know, I must have one of them new fangled, new fangled back door man.

    I've been working from seven, seven, seven, to eleven every night, It kinda makes my life a drag...
    Baby, Since I've Been Loving You, I'm about to lose, I'm about to lose, lose my worried mind.

    Just one more, just one more, oooh, yeah,
    Since I've been loving you, I'm gonna lose my worried mind.

    2:24

    May 1933, Rodgers, suffering from Tuberculosis, traveled to New York City for a group of sessions beginning May 17, 1933. He started these sessions recording alone and completed four songs on the first day. When he returned to the studio after a day's rest, he had to record sitting down and soon retreated to his hotel in hopes of regaining enough energy to finish the songs he had been rehearsing. The recording engineer hired two session musicians to help Rodgers when he came back to the studio a few days later. Together they recorded a few songs, including Mississippi Delta Blues. For his last song of the session, however, Jimmie chose to perform alone, and as a matching bookend to his career, recorded Years Ago by himself.

    Jimmie Rodgers died two days later on May 26, 1933 from a lung hemorrhage. He was 35 years old.

    Lyrics:
    I know that you say I get mean when I'm drinking,
    But then again sometimes I get really sweet
    So what does it mean if I tell you to go fuck yourself
    Or if I say that you're beautiful to me

    It's affection always,
    You're gonna see it someday
    My attention for you
    Even if it's not what you need

    Sometimes we talk all night long, we don't shut up
    and when it's late we'll say we're still wide awake so...
    We love to talk about how you'll come up to visit me
    and we'll rent a car and we'll drive upstate

    It's affection always,
    You're gonna see it someday
    My attention's on you
    Even if it's not what you need

    I think of you,
    I want you too,
    I'd fall for you

    It's affection always...

    Album: Too Much Weekend Lyrics:The sky is cryin....Can't you see the tears roll down the street
    The sky is cryin....Can't you see the tears roll down the street
    I've been looking for my baby
    And I wonder where can she be
    I saw my baby early one morning....She was walking on down the street
    I saw my baby early this morning....She was walking on down the street
    You know it hurt me, hurt me so bad
    It made my poor heart skip a beat
    I've got a real real real real bad feelin
    That my baby she don't love me no more
    I've got a real real bad feelin that my baby don't love me no more
    You know the sky, the sky's been cryin
    Can you see the tears roll down my nose

    The Sky Is Crying is a song that has become a blues standard. It was written and recorded by Elmore James in 1959

    Some photographs are not his, when I realized the error, it was already late, I already had some comments, and out of respect I did not remove the video. I'm sorry.

    Nobody can sing the blues as Blind Willie McTell ' (1), this at least is what Bob Dylan sentences in the topic who dedicated this big bluesman and who helped to increase his legend. A legend that as it usually happens often did not start blowing up even after his death, especially immediately after that in 1959 Sam Charters was including in the album that was accompanying his famous book ' The Country Blues ' one of his topics, ' Statesboro blues ', which later would be taken to the reputation in 1968 by Taj Mahal on his disc of debut and especially in 1971 by Allman Brothers Band in his mythical double album ' Live at Fillmore East ' (2).

    William Samuel McTell, better known as Blind Willie McTell (May 5, 1898 (sometimes reported as 1901 or 1903) August 19, 1959), was an influential American blues singer, songwriter, and guitarist. He was a twelve-string finger picking Piedmont blues guitarist, and recorded 149 songs between 1927 and 1956.

    Here's the original version of Bad Blues by Baby Tate, recorded in 1961.
    In the spoken introduction of the song he explains what gives him the blues and what he then does...smart advice!

    I first heard this instrumental when I was about 15 years old.
    I found the lp called The Blues in our local library and it has several tracks by Baby Tate. His music left a very profound impression on me and inspired me to start to play the guitar...and after many years of fooling around I finally recorded my own version.

    Myers was born in Laurel, Mississippi. He acquired juvenile cataracts at age seven and was left legally blind for the rest of his life, despite corrective surgery.] He could make out shapes and shadows, but could not read print at all; he was taught Braille.

    He acquired an interest in music while a schoolboy in Jackson, Mississippi, and became skilled enough at playing the trumpet and drums that he received a nondegree scholarship from the American Conservatory of Music (formerly the American Conservatory School of Music) in Chicago. Myers attended school by day and at night frequented the nightclubs of the South Side.

    There he met and was sitting in with Jimmy Rogers, Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, Little Walter, Hound Dog Taylor, Robert Lockwood, Jr., and Elmore James. Myers played drums with Elmore James on a fairly steady basis from 1952 until James's death, in 1963, and is credited on many of James's historic recordings for Chess Records. In 1956, Myers wrote and recorded what was to be his most famous single, Sleeping in the Ground, a song that has been covered by Blind Faith, Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, and many other blues artists; it was also featured on Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour show on Sleep.

  • Willie Brown - Future Blues

    3:03

    Willie Brown (August 6, 1900 December 30, 1952) was an American delta blues guitarist and singer. Born in Clarksdale, Mississippi, Brown played with such notables as Charley Patton, and Robert Johnson. He was not known to be a self-promoting frontman, preferring to second other musicians. Little is known for certain of the man whom Robert Johnson called my friend-boy, Willie Brown (in his prophetic Cross Road Blues) and whom Johnson indicated should be notified in event of his death. Brown is heard with Patton on the Paramount sessions of 1930, playing M & O Blues, and Future Blues. Apart from playing with Son House and Charlie Patton it has also been said that he played with artists such as Luke Thomson and Thomas Clubfoot Coles. At least four other songs he recorded for Paramount have never been found. Rowdy Blues, a 1929 song credited to Kid Bailey, is disputed to have Brown on backup, or Brown himself using the name of Kid Bailey. Both M & O Blues and Future Blues appear on the album Son House & The Great Delta Blues Singers (1994), recorded between 1928 and 1930, on the Document Records label. They also appear on JSP's Charlie Patton box set. David Evans has reconstructed the early biography of a Willie Brown living in Drew, Mississippi, until 1929. He was married by 1911 to a proficient guitarist named Josie Mills. He is recalled as singing and playing guitar with Charley Patton and others in the neighbourhood of Drew. Informants with conflicting memories led Gayle Dean Wardlow and Steve Calt to conclude that this was a different Willie Brown. Evans rejects this, believing that the singing and guitar style of the 1931 recordings is clearly in the tradition of other performers from Drew such as Charley Patton, Tommy Johnson, Kid Bailey, Howling Wolf and artists recorded non-commercially. Alan Lomax added further confusion in 1993, suggesting that the William Brown he recorded in Arkansas in 1942 was the same man as the Paramount artist.[5] The recording was for a joint project between Fisk University and the Library of Congress documenting the music of Coahoma County, Mississippi in 1941 and 1942. Writing over fifty years later, Lomax forgot that he had actually recorded Willie the previous summer with Son House, Fiddlin' Joe Martin and Leroy Williams. Brown played second guitar on three performances by the whole band, and recorded one solo, Make Me a Pallet on the Floor. The later biography is clear. Willie Brown, the Paramount artist, lived in Robinsonville, Mississippi from 1929 and moved to Lake Cormorant, Mississippi by 1935. He performed occasionally with Charley Patton, and continually with Son House until his death. After this, House ceased performing until his rediscovery in 1964. Brown died in Tunica, Mississippi in 1952 at the age of 52.

    3:02

    „My Baby Is Gone
    (Mc Tell)

    Aufnahme: New York, September 18, 1933
    Blind Willie McTell (g)(vcl), Curley Weaver (g) (vcl)

    William Samuel McTell, better known as Blind Willie McTell (May 5, 1898 (sometimes reported as 1901) -- August 19, 1959), was an influential American blues singer, songwriter, and guitarist. He was a twelve-string finger picking Piedmont blues guitarist, and recorded 149 songs between 1927 and 1956.
    Born William Samuel McTier in Thomson, Georgia, blind in one eye, McTell had lost his remaining vision by late childhood, but became an adept reader of Braille. He showed an inherent proficiency in music from an early age and learned to play the six-string guitar as soon as he could. His father left the family when McTell was still young, so when his mother died in the 1920s, he left his hometown and became a wandering busker. He began his recording career in 1927 for Victor Records in Atlanta.
    In the years before World War II, he traveled and performed widely, recording for a number of labels under a different name for each one, including Blind Willie McTell (Victor and Decca), Blind Sammie (Columbia), Georgia Bill (Okeh), Hot Shot Willie (Victor), Blind Willie (Vocalion), Red Hot Willie Glaze (Bluebird), Barrelhouse Sammie (Atlantic) and Pig & Whistle Red (Regal). His style was singular: a form of country blues, bridging the gap between the raw blues of the early part of the 20th Century and the more refined East Coast Piedmont sound. He took on the less common and more unwieldy 12-string guitar because of its volume. The style is well documented on John Lomax's 1940 recordings of McTell for the Library of Congress, for which McTell earned ten dollars.
    In 1934, he married Ruthy Kate Williams (now better known as Kate McTell). She accompanied him on stage and on several recordings, before becoming a nurse in 1939. Most of their marriage from 1942 until his death was spent apart, with her living in Fort Gordon near Augusta, and him working around Atlanta.
    Post-war, he recorded for Atlantic Records and Regal Records in 1949, but these recordings met with less commercial success than his previous works. He continued to perform around Atlanta, but his career was cut short by ill health, predominantly diabetes and alcoholism.
    In 1956, an Atlanta record store manager, Edward Rhodes, discovered McTell playing in the street for quarters and enticed him into his store with a bottle of corn liquor, where he captured a few final performances on a tape recorder. These were released posthumously on Prestige/Bluesville Records as Blind Willie McTell's Last Session.
    McTell died in Milledgeville, Georgia of a stroke in 1959.

    „Easy Rider
    (H. Ledbetter -- J. & A. Lomax)

    Recorded:
    New York, June 17, 1940
    Lead Belly (vcl) (g)

    Huddie William Ledbetter, (January, 1888 -- December 6, 1949) was an American folk and blues musician, notable for his clear and forceful singing, his virtuosity on the twelve string guitar, and the rich songbook of folk standards he introduced.
    He is best known as Leadbelly or Lead Belly. Though many releases list him as Leadbelly, he himself spelled it Lead Belly. This is also the usage on his tombstone, as well as the Lead Belly Foundation.
    Although he most commonly played the twelve string, he could also play the piano, mandolin, harmonica, violin, concertina, and accordion. In some of his recordings, such as in one of his versions of the folk ballad John Hardy, he performs on the accordion instead of the guitar. In other recordings he just sings while clapping his hands or stomping his foot. The topics of Lead Belly's music covered a wide range of subjects, including gospel songs; blues songs about women, liquor and racism; and folk songs about cowboys, prison, work, sailors, cattle herding and dancing. He also wrote songs concerning the newsmakers of the day, such as President Franklin Roosevelt, Adolf Hitler, Jean Harlow, the Scottsboro Boys and multi-millionaire Howard Hughes. Fame in 1986.
    The day of his birth has also been debated. The most common date given is January 20, but other sources suggest he was born on January 21 or 29. The only document we have that Ledbetter, himself, helped fill out is his World War II draft registration from 1942 where he gives his birth date as January 23, 1889
    Lead Belly's boastful spirit and penchant for the occasional skirmish sometimes led him into trouble with the law, and in January 1918 he was thrown into prison for the second time, this time after killing one of his relatives, Will Stafford, in a fight. He was incarcerated in Sugar Land, Texas and it is there that he got the inspiration for the song Midnight Special. It is said that he was released two years into his 35-year sentence after writing a song appealing to Governor Pat Morris Neff for his freedom. Lead Belly had swayed Governor Neff by appealing to his strong religious values. That, in combination with good behavior (including entertaining by playing for the guards and fellow prisoners), was Lead Belly's ticket out of jail.
    In 1930, Lead Belly was back in prison, this time in Louisiana for attempted homicide. It was there, three years later, that he was discovered by musicologists John and Alan Lomax, who were enchanted by his talent, passion and singularity as a performer, and recorded hundreds of his songs on portable recording equipment for the Library of Congress. The following year Lead Belly was once again pardoned, this time after a petition for his early release was taken to Louisiana Governor O.K. Allen by the Lomaxes. The petition was on the other side of a recording of one of his most popular songs, Goodnight Irene. The state's prison records, however, show he was released due to

    Jolly Banker
    by Woody Guthrie

    My name is Tom Cranker and I'm a jolly banker,

    I safeguard the farmers and widows and orphans,
    Singin' I'm a jolly banker, jolly banker am I.

    I'm a jolly banker, jolly banker am I.
    I check up your shortage and bring down your mortgage,
    Singin' I'm a jolly banker, jolly banker am I.

    When money you're needing, and mouths you are feeding,
    I'm a jolly banker, jolly banker am I.
    I'll plaster your home with a furniture loan,
    Singin' I'm a jolly banker, jolly banker am I.

    If you show me you need it, I'll let you have credit,
    I'm a jolly banker, jolly banker am I.
    Just bring me back two for the one I lend you,
    Singin' I'm a jolly banker, jolly banker am I.

    When your car you're losin', and sadly your cruisin',
    I'm a jolly banker, jolly banker am I.
    I'll come and forclose, get your car and your clothes,
    Singin' I'm a jolly banker, jolly banker am I.

    When the bugs get your cotton, the times they are rotten,
    I'm a jolly banker, jolly banker am I.
    I'll come down and help you, I'll rake you and scalp you,
    Singin' I'm a jolly banker, jolly banker am I.

    When the landlords abuse you, or sadly misuse you,
    I'm a jolly banker, jolly banker am I.
    I'll send down the police chief to keep you from mischief,
    Singin' I'm a jolly banker, jolly banker am I.

    Lyrics:

    I got on that freight train; I tried to beat my way.
    Lord, them rocks and gravel, Lord, flew all in my face. (What happened, boy?)

    I asked the conductor, let me ride it blind. (Okay...)
    I asked the conductor to let me ride it blind. (What did he say?)
    Lord, he shook his head, said, The train ain't none of mine.

    (Left you shook up, then...)

    I got a letter from Hot Spring. I tell you how it was read. (Feel any better, boy.)
    I got a letter from Hot Spring. I tell you how it was read.
    Lord, it's come at once, boy: your sure-'nough gal is dead. (...know whether to go blind, then...)
    Come at, come at once, sure-'nough gal, sure-'nough gal is dead.

    Said I left my baby standin' out back door cryin'. (Felt like somethin' else.)
    I left my baby standing out back door cryin'.
    I never felt so sorry, Lord, till she said goodbye.
    Lord, she—, Lord, she said good—, Lord, she said goodbye.

    there is a house in new orleans
    they call the rising sun
    it's been the ruin of a many a poor girl
    and me, oh god are one

    if i had listened like momma said
    i would not be here today
    but being so young and foolish too
    that a gambler lead me astray

    come tell my baby sisters
    dont do what i have done
    please shun that house in new orleans
    they call the rising sun

    i'm goin back to new orleans
    my race is almost run
    i'm goin back to new orleans
    beneath the rising sun

    Charley Patton - Spoonful Blues

    A song about cocaine

    It has been suggested by some kind sirs in the comments that maybe Charley was head of some clandestine tea drinking coven. There are some that say Shakespeare never wrote those plays but they were written by Elizabeth 1 while she was waiting for some blind beggar to be beheaded for stealing an apple from her orchard.

    Charlie Patton born Mississippi, April 1891 was an experienced performer of songs before he was twenty years old and was first recorded (Thankfully) in 1929. His influence is everywhere and was arguably the first of the greats. An influence on Son House, Tommy Johnson, Bukka White and without doubt Howlin' Wolf. We have to thank archivists, the likes of Harry Smith, that we can hear these inimitable songs today.
