    Scrapper Blackwell ~ Blues Before Sunrise

    5:10

    Francis Hillman Scrapper Blackwell was born in Syracuse, North Carolina, United States, February 21, 1903, as one of sixteen children of Payton and Elizabeth Blackwell. Part Cherokee, he grew up and spent most of his life in Indianapolis, Indiana. Blackwell was given the nickname, Scrapper, by his grandmother, due to his fiery nature. His father played the fiddle, but Blackwell was a self-taught guitarist, building his first guitar out of cigar boxes, wood and wire. He also learned the piano, occasionally playing professionally. By his teens, Blackwell was a part-time musician, traveling as far as Chicago. Known for being withdrawn and hard to work with, Blackwell established a rapport with pianist Leroy Carr, whom he met in Indianapolis in the mid-1920s, creating a productive working relationship. Carr convinced Blackwell to record with him for the Vocalion label in 1928; the result was How Long, How Long Blues, the biggest blues hit of that year...
    ...On October 7, 1962 he was shot and killed during a mugging in an Indianapolis alley. He was 59 years old. Although the crime remains unsolved, police arrested his neighbour at the time for the murder. Blackwell is buried in New Crown Cemetery, Indianapolis.

    Midnight Hour Blues - Leroy Carr and Scrapper Blackwell

    3:04

    This was issued on Vocalion March 16 1932. Robert Johnson was known to be an admirer of Scrappers guitar playing.

    In the wee midnight hours, long before the break of day
    When the blues creep up on you, and carry your mind away

    While I lay in my bed, and cannot go to sleep
    While my heart's in trouble, and my mind is thinking deep

    My mind was running, back to days of long ago
    And the one I love, I don't see her anymore

    Blues why do you worry me, why do you stay so long
    You come to me yesterday, been with me all night long

    I've been so worried, I didn't know what to do
    So I guess that's why, I've had these midnight hour blues

    Scrapper Blackwell  Kokomo Blues  True Revolution !!

    3:43

    True Revorution !!
    This sound file is made by playing the original 78 record at most probable speed, not at 78 rpm.
    Playback speed at 73.5rpm.



    この曲は、スクラッパー・ブラックウェルの初録音です。
    ブラックウェルはリロイ・カーと組む前にすでにレコード・デビューしていたんですね。

    CDではキーがFです。このブルースはEシェイプで弾かれていると思われますので、CD通りだと1カポの演奏となります。
    しかし、ブラックウェルはカポを使用していなかったと判断すると、キーは普通にEの演奏となります。

    このKokomo Bluesはロバート・ジョンソンのスウィートホーム・シカゴの元ネタともいわれています。ロバート・ジョンソンのスウィートホーム・シカゴもEシェイプでの演奏です。
    ロバート・ジョンソンが活動していた時代の最高のブルース・スターはリロイ・カーとスクラッパー・ブラックウェルのコンビでした。
    ロバート・ジョンソンは大スターのブラックウェルの古いSPを探しだして、ギターの練習をしたのでしょう。
