Did Robert Johnson sell his soul to the Devil?

“I Went Down To The Crossroads…” – Did Robert Johnson sell his soul to the Devil?

Introduction to Robert Johnson

Robert Johnson (1911-1938) is a blues musician from Mississippi. He is known for playing some of the best blues ever, emulating the sound of two guitars with one.

He is often called the “Father of Modern Rock and Roll,” because his songs influenced many people, including Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Keith Richards and Muddy Waters.

Johnson was often scolded for not working enough in the field. He would spend most of his time in old juke houses, watching Son House religiously, and trying to learn everything about the guitar. When Son House would go out on breaks, young Robert would pick up the guitar and try to play. House would get a lot of complaints, as nobody liked Roberts playing. However, he was never discouraged.

Professional Career

Robert Johnson’s young wife died during child birth, so he packed up and left to play music up and down the Delta around 1930.

He left mysteriously for about a year. When he came back, his playing, songwriting, and singing were all extraordinarily improved.

He started traveling from town to town, playing for tips on street corners. He eventually got to record in San Antonio, Texas circa 1936. He recorded songs such as Come On In My Kitchen, Crossroad Blues, and Terraplane Blues. The latter became a regional hit, selling 5,000 copies. In 1937, he had another recording session in which he brought Sweet Home Chicago and Love in Vain, two of his most popular songs.

Johnson and the Devil

What happened to Johnson when he disappeared in 1931? He left as an average musician at best, but came back as a lean, mean, blues-singing machine. How could anyone gain such an incredible amount of skill in just a few months?

Well, several explanations have popped up. The most practical is he started taking lessons with Ike Zinnerman. However due to Johnson gaining such an incredible amount of skill in a short time, some have dismissed this. The other explanation is that Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil.

Legend has it that while working on a rural farm in Mississippi, he still had a burning desire to become a great blues musician. He was instructed to take his guitar down to the crossroads in the dead of the night. There, a large black man (the Devil), will take his guitar, tune it, and play a few songs. He will then hand the guitar back, with the owner gaining mastery of the instrument. In return, the Devil would then own the players soul.

The legend has grown in time, but that is the core of it. Many variations of this tale have been told, including this actually happening at a graveyard. Johnson seems to have occasionally suggested that he did, in fact sell his soul. However, the myth may have grown from fellow blues musician Tommy Johnson, who repeatedly and publicly claimed he did sell his soul:

“If you want to learn how to make songs yourself, you take your guitar and you go to where the road crosses that way, where a crossroads is. Get there be sure to get there just a little ‘ fore 12 that night so you know you’ll be there. You have your guitar and be playing a piece there by yourself…A big black man will walk up there and take your guitar and he’ll tune it. And then he’ll play a piece and hand it back to you. That’s the way I learned to play anything I want.”

Evidence in His Songs

In Crossroad Blues, Robert sang:

“I went to the crossroads, fell down on my knees/I went to the crossroads, fell down on my knees/I asked the Lord above, have mercy, save poor Bob if you please/Uumb, standing at the crossroads I tried to flag a ride/Standing at the crossroads I tried to flag a ride/Ain’t nobody seem to know me, everybody pass me by.”

In Hell Hound On My Trail, he shows fear of the devil.

In Me and the Devil, he sang:

“Early this morning when you knocked upon my door/Early this morning, umb, when you knocked upon my door/And I said, ‘Hello, Satan, I believe it’s time to go,” before leading into “You may bury my body down by the highway side/You may bury my body, uumh, down by the highway side/So my old evil spirit can catch a Greyhound bus and ride.”

It is possible that he made the whole thing up as a publicity stunt, but he mentions the Devil in six of his songs, so it is hard to tell. Many people have tried it, but some say you have to honestly really want to sell your soul, not just say you do.

Aftermath

The effects of the myth are still relevant today. You see references or re-enactments of the crossroads scene everywhere in pop culture. It was even documented in the film Crossroads.

Robert Johnson is a great musician, and the folklore behind him just adds to his popularity.

Did he really do it, though? Did he really disappear, sell his soul to the Devil, and gain super-natural musical prowess? Or did he just learn really fast? For now, no-one will ever know. Sometimes it is fun to believe something like this could happen. Either way, it makes a good story. For those that believe in the supernatural, this seems a lot more possible than others. Johnson died at a young age, maybe the Devil was behind it all.

Jimmy Witherspoon- Spoon’s Blues (1995)
Mp3 @ 320 / RS

Jimmy Witherspoon (1920 – 1997) was an American blues singer famous as a “blues shouter”.

Witherspoon’s style of blues – that of the “blues shouter” – became unfashionable in the mid-1950s, but he returned to popularity with his 1959 album, Jimmy Witherspoon at the Monterey Jazz Festival, which featured Roy Eldridge, Woody Herman, Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins, Earl Hines and Mel Lewis, among others. He later recorded with Gerry Mulligan, Leroy Vinnegar, Richard “Groove” Holmes and T-Bone Walker.

This fine collection Spoon’s Blues was recorded with The Duke Robillard Band in December 1994. Along with Jimmy, other renowned musicians here include Scott Hamilton, Duke Robillard, Bruce Katz, Marty Ballou and Jeffery McAllistar.

All Of Bob Dylan’s Non-LP Tracks; 1962-2005 (almost) – 206 Songs

Some stunning work here from the excellent nevergetoutoftheboat who has collected most of Dylan’s cast array of Non-LP tracks – garnered from the likes of singles, import albums, ‘Various Artist’ LPs, promos, radio

concerts, soundtracks, recalled releases etc etc up to around 2005!

Fucking Hell! Amazing work mate! And a million thanks for your efforts!

A Ridiculously Large Post Of Almost All Of Bob Dylan’s Non-LP Tracks (1962-2005)
206 Songs, 16 Hours Of Rare Bob
(No Bootlegs) New Additions At Bottom

Scatte
red Bob Dylan tracks from singles, import albums, various artist LPs, promos, radio

concerts, soundtracks, recalled releases… you name it (up to around 2005).

We’d been working on this project for some time, based on this ridiculously elaborate list (scroll to #647 to begin), when Neon P

ark posted his own version. Not wishing to abandon our time investment, we also pillaged his – correcting file info, adding date details, album covers and some absent tracks.

There are still a few missing (for you obsessive types – #’s 711, 713, 727, 728, 751, 801, 803, 804, 846-851, 854-863, 871 & 872), but you’ll no doubt find this nearly complete gathering satisfying – grouped and organized by release date.

No bootlegs are included, it’s all officially released stuff except for Bob’s US albums, The Bootleg Series, The Wilburys and the like (don’t forget to grab Disc 3 from 2008’s Tell Tale Signs here)

.

Of course, it cant be as simple as all that … there are a few dupes, some tracks have been re-issued in strange ways, some as DVD bon

uses, some sessions are split by release dates into different sections but… you’ll get the gist. The highlights are endless; the 2005 dub version of “I And I,” a simply gorgeous 1963 live take of “Boots Of Spanish Leather,” the “mistaken” release of “Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window,” and alternate versions of “Everything is Broken” & “Shelter From The Storm.”

And check out “Rocks And Gravel” (a precursor to “It Takes A Lot To Laugh…”), a full band take from the recalled promo of Bob’s acoustic Freewheelin’ LP. The wonders never cease.

johnson1.jpg Me and the Devil Blues: The Unreal Life of Robert Johnson Vol. 1 (Del Rey)

This dark and fantastic manga explores the life of Robert Johnson, the Depression-era musician who (supposedly) sold his soul to the Devil to become the greatest Blues player who ever lived.


526 pgs. B&W; $19.95

(W / A: Akira Hiramoto)


by Elizabeth Schweitzer

Friday, 14 November 2008

In 1929 life was hard for everyone, but even more so for the poor blacks who lived in the Mississippi Delta. Robert Johnson is one of them, a soon-to-be father trying desperately to make out a life for himself and his wife.

Unfortunately for RJ, as he’s known, he has a small addiction problem—the Blues. He sneaks away every night to the juke, plinking away on his guitar, aspiring to be one of the best but only coming out a laughingstock. The Blues are his only shot at a way out of Mississippi, and he’s willing to do almost anything to make his dream come true, even if that means taking his battered old guitar to the crossroads at midnight. Legend has it if a man does that, the Devil will appear, take your instrument, play it and hand it back.

The cover to Me and the Devil Blues by Akira Hiramoto. Click for a larger image.You’d walk away an expert bluesman … but you’d have also just sold your soul. Which is exactly what Johnson did. But he soon learns that playing with hellfire will get you burned, as his talents get him into a whirlwind of trouble. Irate plantation owners, gangsters, and a lynch-crazy town are soon all after the bluesman, who has even bigger worries when his playing had starts acting extremely strange.

Hiramoto’s dark and fantastic manga Me and the Devil Blues re-imagines the life of famed blues musician Robert Johnson like nothing I’ve read before. Every detail is so stunningly laid out, every nuance and bead of sweat so expertly placed you wonder if Johnson’s story might just be the real thing. From his bleak and barren wooden flat in the Mississippi plantation to the dusty and strictly dry Prohibition town, Hiramoto lavishly draws everything on oversized pages leaving no line carelessly drawn. And just when you’re starting to think, “oh I wonder if he is going to encounter this”…it happens.

The cover to Me and the Devil Blues by Akira Hiramoto. Click for a larger image.I suspect a preponderance of research went into Me and the Devil Blues, not just because of the story itself, but also with the clarity of artwork and dialogue as well. The characters speak with a Southern twang or Delta dialect so easily it’s a marvel to think this was originally written in Japanese at all.

The interaction between the characters, especially portraying the hierarchy between different classes of people and the tension Johnson faces whenever he crosses paths with whites, is also expertly shown; not so heavy-handed as to be dismissible or clichéd, but woven so well into the dialogue that reading becomes a window into the Depression-era South.

As for the artwork, Hiramoto has a sort of soft realism, where elements of manga style can be seen, but the realistic rendering lends authority to the story. As I read, I swore that I was as hot and tired as Johnson toiling beneath the scorching Mississippi sun; that I could smell the smoke and bitter whiskey of the juke; that the chalky dust of a dying town burned my nose as well. Hiramoto’s shading and tones set the mood of Devil Blues throughout, and his liberal use of full pages emphasized the dramatic nature of the manga as well as made for easy reading.

Even though Devil Blues went for a whopping 526 pages, I was stunned when it ended in a cliff-hanger, and only then realized that this was volume one. This manga is a fantastic read, with a gripping story, outstanding artwork, and wonderful writing. It made me want to know more about Robert Johnson; whether he ever did claim to sell his soul to the Devil and what his music sounds like. I would definitely recommend it. This book is for music lovers, for horror lovers, for anyone who likes a good story, and for those who have the Blues or just want to have a taste of them. Just be sure to hang on to your soul.

The Yardbirds – Over/Under Roger (Mono) FLAC

The Yardbirds – Roger The Engineer/Over Under Sideways Down [Mono] – FLAC
Audio CD March 26, 2007
Number of Discs: 2
Original LP Release July 15, 1966 (UK)/ August 8, 1966 (U.S.)
Format: Extra tracks, Original recording remastered, Import
Label: Repertoire

The classic 1966 album by the Jeff Beck ‘version’ of the Yardbirds is now available in Special Slip-case 2CD edition! Hurrah!

This contains the complete Stereo and Mono versions of the album, plus 2 bonus singles tracks! Wonderful stuff!

Roger the Engineer (original title: Yardbirds, US, German, and French title: Over Under Sideways Down) was released in 1966 – produced by bassist Paul Samwell-Smith and Simon Napier-Bell.

It was the only Yardbirds album with all originally-written material. Although the record was officially titled The Yardbirds, it has since been referred to, first colloquially, then semi-officially, as Roger the Engineer, a title stemming from the drawing on its front cover, a cartoon of the record’s audio engineer Roger Cameron by band member Chris Dreja.

Due to the influence of Jeff Beck’s experimentation with guitar distortion, the album is considered a precursor to heavy metal.

The original American versions of this album (issued with a completely different album cover and entitled “Over Under Sideways Down”) omitted the songs “The Nazz Are Blue” and “Rack My Mind” and are mixed differently to the British editions. Regardless, record collectors have sought out both the mono (LN 24210) and stereo (BN 26210) versions since several tracks are featured with slight differences in the mixes. Epic’s 1983 reissue (simply entitled The Yardbirds) featured the original UK album cover, the two missing tracks, duplication of the British mixing, and two additional tracks, the 1966 single “Happenings Ten Years Time Ago” b/w “Psycho Daisies”, both featuring Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.

In 2003, the album was ranked number 349 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Tracklisting

01. Lost Woman
02. Over Under Sideways Down – The Yardbirds, Dreja, Chris
03. The Nazz Are Blue – The Yardbirds, Beck
04. I Can’t Make Your Way
05. Rack My Mind

tube says: This is Disc 2. Disc 2 is the only true Mono mix I’ve ever heard and it rocks. Please play it on a Stereo, not headphones.

Big thanks to tubert

Big Bill Broonzy – Where The Blues Began

Big Bill Broonzy – Where The Blues Began

.. Year: 2000
.. Label: Recall Recs. UK
.. Country: U.S.A.
.. Bitrate: VBR
.. Ripped: EAC 9.0
.. Genre: Blues
.. Home-Page: www.broonzy.com/ (Tribute)
.. Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Bill_Broonzy
.. Last.fm: www.lastfm.com.br/music/Big+Bill+Broonzy

This forty-track double disc is one of the best of the many Big Bill Broonzy-compilations on the market, especially considering the price, and it does a great job summarizing Big Bill’s thirty-year career. William Lee Conley Broonzy was a huge source of inspiration to many younger bluesmen, Muddy Waters and Memphis Slim among them, and once you’ve heard him do “I Can’t Be Satisfied”, “Worrying You Off My Mind” and “You May Need My Help Someday”, you’ll know why.Compare this CD to the earliest plantation recordings of Muddy Waters, and suddenly you have the giant of Chicago blues, the great McKinley Morganfield, looking like a Bill Broonzy-imitator. (Muddy actually recorded an entire album of Big Bill’s songs, as did Memphis Slim, Broonzy’s one-time pianist.)

Big Bill Broonzy was one of the first country-blues musicians to pack up and head north to Illinois, where he became a vital link between rural and urban blues. This collection features most of his best songs, such as “Keep Your Hands Off Her”, “Serve It To Me Right”, “Long Tall Mama”, “Good Time Tonight”, “All By Myself”, “I Feel So Good”, “When I Been Drinking” and of course “Key To The Highway”. Broonzy’s recording career produced literally hundreds of songs. “Where The Blues Began” alternates between Big Bill’s solo pieces, and the songs that he recorded with a band in the 20s and 30s, before the folk boom, and it’s hard to say which is better. Broonzy was a fine, intricate guitar player, and a powerful and expressive singer, equally at ease on his own or with a band.

The sound quality varies, but that is to be expected. Big Bill’s recording career started in the late 20s, after all. But more importantly, almost all of his best (and best-known) songs are here. Not the folk songs that the European folk audiences requested in the 50s, sure, but Big Bill’s own compositions, the blues songs that made him such an incredibly important figure, and one of the first real nation-wide blues stars.

If you’re looking for a truly definitive Big Bill-compilation, you won’t find it anywhere. But this is probably as close as you can get.

A few songs aren’t here which should have been, and a few songs are less remarkable than others, but all in all, this is a very fine testament to the talent of one of the true greats of the blues…a great record, showcasing the talent of the great innovator and the great professional that was William Lee Conley Broonzy.

JUNIOR WELLS & HIS CHICAGO BLUES BAND with BUDDY GUY – Coming At You

JUNIOR WELLS & HIS CHICAGO BLUES BAND with BUDDY GUY – Coming At You

.. Year: 1968 (Original Release Date) (Vanguard Recs.) (CD-1990)
.. Country: U.S.A.
.. Bitrate: VBR
.. Ripped: EAC 9.0
.. Genre: Blues
.. Home-Page: www.delmark.com/rhythm.junior.htm (Delmark)
.. Wikipedia: www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junior_Wells
.. Last.fm: www.last.fm/music/Junior+Wells

Junior was born in Memphis, Tennessee, and raised in Arkansas. Intially influenced by fellow Memphian Junior Parker, and both Sonny Boy Williamsons, Wells moved to Chicago in 1948 and began sitting in with local musicians at house parties and taverns.

He began performing with The Aces (guitarist brothers Dave and Louis Myers and drummer Fred Below) and developed a more modern amplified harmonica style influenced by Little Walter.

He made his first recordings at age 18, when he briefly replaced Little Walter in Muddy Waters’ band and appeared on one of Muddy’s sessions in 1952. His first recordings as a band leader were made in the following year for States Records; in the later ’50s and early ’60s he also recorded singles for other local Chicago labels.

Junior worked with Buddy Guy in the 1960s and recorded his first album for Delmark Records.

His most famous songs are the great “Messin’ With The Kid” and “Little by Little,” which were written and composed by Chicago blues producer Mel London.

His best-known album is 1965’s Hoodoo Man Blues on Delmark Records, which featured Buddy Guy on guitar and evokes the smoky atmosphere of the era’s Westside Chicago blues bars.

Wells made an appearance in the 1998 movie Blues Brothers 2000, the sequel to The Blues Brothers. The movie was released less than a month after his death.

On his passing from lymphoma in 1998, Junior Wells was interred in the Oak Woods Cemetery, Chicago.

Bessie Smith – The Collection

Bessie Smith – The Collection
Audio CD (October 25, 1990)
Original Release Date: March 28, 1989
Label: Sony
ASIN: B0000026N0

The great Bessie sure could belt em out alright!

Peerlessly so!

Here are some of her many fine fine moments!

Bessie Smith was the greatest and most influential classic blues singer of the 1920s. Her full-bodied blues delivery coupled with a remarkable self-assuredness that worked its way in and around most every note she sang, plus her sharp sense of phrasing, enabled her to influence virtually every female blues singer who followed. During her heyday, she sold hundreds of thousands of records and earned upwards of $2.000 per week, which was a queenly sum in the 1920s. She routinely played to packed houses in the South as well as the North and Midwest. By the time the decade had ended, Smith had become the most respected black singer in America and had recorded a catalog of blues that still stands as the yardstick by which all other female blues singers are measured.

For many blacks, Smith was more than just a blues singer. Thanks to an assertive personality and an emancipated, often excessive lifestyle that included much drinking, frequent fistfights, wild sexual encounters with both men and women, and little tolerance of people who aimed to exploit her, Smith became a black cultural symbol. To many blacks, her success represented a triumph over white domination in the entertainment business. She gave hope to oppressed black women and inspired countless of other singers. Smith influenced everyone from Billie Holiday to Mahalia Jackson and Janis Joplin. Although she died 1937, still in the primer of her career, she left behind a legacy that is wonderfully rich and practically unparalleled. She ranks with the best artists the blues has ever produced.

-Amazon.com

Backed by a rotating roster of jazz stars, Smith’s potent delivery made her a peerless star of classic female blues, combining a fiercely independent, almost defiant approach with subtly effective tinges of vulnerability. Early cuts such as “Downhearted Blues,” which supposedly saved Columbia records from extinction in 1923, and “T’aint Nobody’s Bizness If I Do” feature only Clarence Williams’s piano behind her, but it’s her work with Louis Armstrong that truly stands out-Satchmo majestically bobs and weaves his cornet around Smith’s lines on “St. Louis Blues,” “Reckless Blues,” “I Ain’t Gonna Play No Second Fiddle,” and the ragtime chestnut “You’ve Been a Good Old Wagon.” Unfortunately, Columbia offers buyers only two options: this cursory 16-song introduction or an exhaustive five-volume double-CD series.

-Marc Greilsamer

Tracklisting

1. Downhearted Blues
2. ‘Taint Nobody’s Bizness If I Do
3. My Sweetie Went Away

Bo Diddley – His Best (1955-66)

Bo Diddley – His Best (1955-66)
FLAC (cue+log+covers) | 335 Mb | RS
Released: 1997 | Label:MCA / Chess (MCD 09373) | Genre:Blues

Wonderful collection from the late great bluesman!

The Chess Records’ “His Best” compilations are generally outstanding, and the Bo Diddley installation is no exception.

Outside of purchasing Bo’s key studio albums, or shelling out for the comprehensive box set, HIS BEST is the Bo Diddley disc to have, since it covers all of his essential hits, from “Roadrunner” to “I’m a Man” to “Hey! Bo Diddley” to “Who Do You Love?”

But the real surprise here is the quality of the remastering, which brings out a real crispness and edge to the recordings, and the “longer cuts” that result from re-edits to the original masters. Also here, of course, are the infectious, hugely influential Bo Didley beat, the rumbling, ch-chinking guitar, Bo’s neo-blues wails and self-mythologizing lyrics, and everything else that makes this music some of the absolute best and most important in the chapters of early rock & roll.

Tracklisting

01. Bo Diddley [2:46]
02. I’m A Man [3:01]

Eric Clapton Discography (45 CD lossless)

Eric Clapton Discography
Rock, Blues | 45 CD | 1965-2006 | Flac | 23 GB | RS; text file with links

All thanks to olelele for this stupendous collection!

Eric Patrick Clapton, CBE (born 30 March 1945), is an English blues-rock guitarist, singer, songwriter and composer. He is “probably most famous for his mastery of the Stratocaster guitar”.

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Yardbirds, of Cream, and as a solo performer. Often viewed by critics and fans alike as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Clapton was ranked fourth in Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and #53 on their list of the Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

Although Clapton’s musical style has varied throughout his career, it has remained rooted in the blues. Despite this focus he is credited as an innovator in a wide variety of genres, including blues-rock (with John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and The Yardbirds) and psychedelic rock (with Cream). Clapton’s chart success was also not limited to the blues, with chart-toppers in Delta blues (Me and Mr. Johnson), pop (“Change the World”) and reggae (Bob Marley’s “I Shot the Sheriff”). One of his most successful recordings was the hit love song “Layla”, which he played with the band Derek and the Dominos.

Grinderman – Grinderman (2007)

Grinderman – Grinderman (2007)
Rock : Alternative
mp3@192 | 59 MB | Rapidshare

A real return to form from Nick Cave and a few pals after a few disappointing outings with in the period after Cave’s meisterwerk The Boatman’s Call.

The step away from the Seeds seems to have freed up Nicky and allowed all involved to go back to the future! This really is a rgreat eturn to the angst, power and rawness of the earliest Bad Seeds albums, and indeed harks back to his previous outfit, post-punk heroes the !

This Grinderman project would in turn freshen the Bad Seeds and the great 2008 LP Dig Lazarus Dig (also here) would carry on in the same vein as the template carved out here.

This is a wonderful and humorous rock-fuelled trip to the back of the mirror!

Lock up the kids, motherfuckers!

Beginning sometime in the mid-to-late 1990s, Nick Cave’s output became increasingly nuanced, introspective, and even tender. While he was still capable of a snarling rocker now and again, he’d certainly mellowed by the turn of the new millennium.

Then came 2007 and the arrival of the mighty Grinderman, a raucous, noisy, angry, horny outfit fronted by and featuring a few erstwhile members of Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey, and Jim Sclavunos.

The project marks the first time Cave has been featured on guitar, and the first time since as far back as the . that he’s approached his music with such libidinal urgency and swaggering gothic machismo.

The music screeches, lurches, and clangs with a loose abandon that reimagines Cave’s earlier incarnations in a more self-effacing guise.

While Cave’s lyrics are as considered and darkly literary as ever, there’s great humour here (“No Pussy Blues,” “Depth Charge”), and the general improvisatory, spontaneous nature of the project is obviously being enjoyed by all.

GRINDERMAN is delicious proof that Nick the Stripper isn’t gone after all.

Parents, lock up the kiddies, it’s showtime motherfuckers!!

Classic Blues from Smithsonian Folkways


Classic Blues from Smithsonian Folkways
Mp3 @192

Label Smithsonian Folkways Recordings
Orig Year 2003
All Time Sales Rank 76210
CD Universe Part number 5572461
Catalog number 40134
Discs 1
Release Date Feb 25, 2003
Studio/Live Studio
Mono/Stereo Mixed
Recording Time 73 minutes

A living and dynamic tradition, blues is forged in hard times but is also powerful enough to bring on the good times!

Legends such as Lead Belly, Memphis Slim, Big Bill Broonzy, Elizabeth Cotten, Sonny Terry, and Brownie McGhee, among others formed the “blues backbone” of the great Folkways Records.

This compilation from the Smithsonian Folkways collection spans half a century and features Delta, St. Louis, Southwest, and Chicago styles performed by some of the best-known figures in blues history.

From boogies to ballads, full of innuendo and irony, this classic collection is a jukebox in a jewel case.

https://i0.wp.com/i176.photobucket.com/albums/w200/wild_turkee101/blues.jpg

Starting in the 1940s, Folkways made significant blues recordings, particularly of important artists who might not have had the easiest time getting or keeping contracts with more commercial labels, but still had something to say artistically.

This expansive 26-track compilation assembles material recorded between the 1940s and 1990s that showed up on various Folkways releases.

Unfortunately, the liner notes don’t name the exact dates of all the recordings, but certainly the substantial majority of them predate 1970.

Overall, it’s a rather good compilation of many major and minor mid-20th century blues with numerous diverse performers and styles.

The bigger names include Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee (whose “Old Jabo,” with drums, almost verges on Bo Diddley-styled rock & roll), Reverend Gary Davis (represented by a 1957 version of his famous “Candy Man”), Big Bill Broonzy, Memphis Slim and Willie Dixon (performing together), Lightnin’ Hopkins, Leadbelly, Roosevelt Sykes, Son House, Champion Jack Dupree, Elizabeth Cotten, Lonnie Johnson, and Josh White.

While acoustic guitar blues (including a field recording of K.C. Douglas’ “Mercury Blues,” later covered by Steve Miller) gets a fair amount of airtime, so do boogie piano, a cappella singing (Vera Hall), and some actual Delta blues (Son House, from a 1942 field recording).

Amazing music!

Black girl, black girl, don’t lie to me,
where did you stay last night?
This powerful, timeless, traditional classic is best known via the scintillating version from Kurt Cobain in Nirvana’s 1993 MTV Unplugged in NYC show.

Topmost amongst the highlights of that show was the very intense performance by Kurt Cobain of Leadbelly’s version of Where Did You Sleep Last Night.

Could Kurt perhaps have been making the lyrics autobiographical and been referring to a certain skank to whom he was attached?! Course not!

“Where Did You Sleep Last Night” was actually performed live by Nirvana a few times during the early 1990s.

Cobain was introduced to the song by his pal Mark Lanegan (formerly of Seattle’s excellent Screaming Trees), and Kurt even played guitar on Lanegan’s version! Like Lanegan too, Cobain usually screamed the song’s final verse. Imitation is the best form of flattery!

Cobain earned critical and commercial acclaim for his acoustic performance of the song during Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged appearance in 1993. This version was posthumously released on the band’s MTV Unplugged in New York album (and as a B-side on their recalled “Pennyroyal Tea” single) the following year.

A solo Cobain home demo of the song, recorded in 1990, appears on Nirvana’s 2004 box set, With the Lights Out. It does not feature the final screamed verse of later versions.

An electric version of “Where Did You Sleep Last Night” was recorded by Mark Lanegan in August 1989 and appears on his 1990 debut solo album, The Winding Sheet. Catch this track in the vid below at the end of the post. Also in the composite RAR below. Also here; Mark_Lanegan- Sleep_Last_Night.mp3

In 2006 the Twilight Singers toured with Lanegan as guest vocalist and performed the song live several times. Catch the Twilight Singers with Laneganthis performing this track in the vid below at the end of the post.

This classic Appalachian traditional song is more properly called “In the Pines“.

“In the Pines” – also known as “Black Girl” and “Where Did You Sleep Last Night?” – is a traditional American folk song which dates back to at least the 1870s, and is believed to be Southern Appalachian in origin.

Over the years, the song has been sung by countless singers and has been recorded by many dozens of artists in numerous genres and in numerous versions.

The identity of the song’s original author is unknown. In fact the song has undergone so many mutations and transformations that, like many traditional songs, it does not, nor could not, have one person to whom authorship could properly be ascribed.

However, Kurt Cobain attributed authorship to Huddie William Ledbetter (January, 1888 – December 6, 1949) – better known as Leadbelly – who had recorded the song several times, beginning in 1944.

Nevertheless, the fact is that all the kernel elements of the song were written years before Leadbelly ever heard it – even years before Leadbelly was born!

Interestingly, and bizarrely, though, it does appear that Leadbelly did somehow manage to obtain legal copyright on the song!

Leadbelly did make small adaptations to certain versions of the song that had thertofore circulated to form his own version of the old song. However, the the version performed by Leadbelly (and covered by Mark Lanegan and Nirvana etc.) does not differ at all substantially from other, far older variants of the song, which, like Leadbelly’s, are performed in 3/4 time.

https://i1.wp.com/www.vh1.com/sitewide/flipbooks/img/artists/bob_dylan/no_direction_home/27.jpg
Bob Dylan, especially in his earliest days on the folk circuit, has performed “In the Pines” a number of times at his shows. The track also appears on a number of different Dylan bootlegs but a Dylan version was never officially recorded or released.

The version below is from a Dylan show at Carnegie Chapter Hall, NY November 4, 1961, as captured on the wonderful early Dylan bootleg Dylan’s Roots.

Dylan’s version is strongly based on Leadbelly’s with some small changes to the lyrics.

https://i1.wp.com/www.taplines.net/gfa/gaflaandalatraincarrabelle.jpg

As referred to, this traditional Appalachian song dates back to the 1870s – most probably earlier – and, like countless other folk songs, “Where Did You Sleep Last Night” was passed on from one generation and locale to the next by word of mouth.

Lyrics in some versions about “Joe Brown’s coal mine” and “the Georgia line” may date it to Joseph E. Brown, a former Governor of Georgia, who famously leased convicts to operate coal mines in the 1870s.

Over time the song evolved and acquired numerous variants, none of which are definitive.

The first printed version of the song, compiled by Cecil Sharp, appeared in 1917, and comprised just four lines and a melody.

The Cecil Sharp lines are:


Black girl, black girl, don’t lie to me
Where did you stay last night?
I stayed in the pines where the sun never shines
And shivered when the cold wind blows

In 1925, a version of the song was recorded onto phonograph cylinder by a folk collector. This was the first documentation of “The Longest Train” variant of the song.

This variant includes at least one stanza about “The longest train I ever saw”. These go along the lines of the following (however, again there are sub-variations even within this variant!)

The longest train I ever saw
Went down that Georgia Line
The engine passed at six o’clock
and the cab went by at nine

The longest train I ever saw
was 19 coaches long
The only boy I ever loved
is on that train and gone

The kernel of “The Longest Train” stanza(s) originally comes from a separate song entirely, that over time merged into “Where Did You Sleep Last Night”.


Yes, there does actually exist a totally separate traditional song known as “The longest train I ever saw”, wherein are essentially the same lines;

The longest train I ever saw
Run by Joe Brown’s coal mine
The headlight passed at six o’clock
The cab came by at nine

The prettiest girl I ever saw
Is on that train an’ gone
Her eyes were blue, her cheeks was brown
An’ her hair is hung way down

Th train it wrecked at four miles
It killed my Evalane
Her head was found in th driver’s seat
Her poor body hain’t been found

Th longest way, th longest day
The longest night
Was th day Evalane died

I walked th track
Whole day alone
I bowed my head an’ cried

Th long steel rail, the short cross ties
They carried away
The arms that brought me safely here
But I’ll make it home, someday


thanks to maxhunter.missouristate.edu

And where is any proper traditional song without death and sadness!

Where Did You Sleep Last Night, in many variants, tells of the grisly decapitation of the protagonist’s loved one, often ascribed to a train.

Early renditions, wherein mention is made that someone’s “head was found in the driver’s wheel”, usually make clear that a train caused the decapitation.

However, a number of later versions would drop the reference to the train and reattribute the cause of the decapitation/ death to different and various sources.

Music historian Norm Cohen, in his 1981 book “Long Steel Rail: The Railroad in American Folksong,” states that eventually the song came to consist of three frequent elements:

  • a chorus about “in the pines”,
  • a stanza (or more) about “the longest train”
  • a stanza (or more) about a decapitation.

However, not all elements are present in every version!

https://i1.wp.com/blog.oregonlive.com/popmusic/2007/08/leadbelly.jpgIn the Leadbelly version, the “in the pines” chorus is prominent but the longest train verse is excluded entirely.

However, the death of the protagonist’s loved one is clearly stated and it’s cause attributed indirectly to a train. In rather macabre fashion, only the corpse’s head is found!

Her husband, was a hard working man
Just about a mile from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
But his body never was found

In a 1970 dissertation, Judith McCulloh found 160 permutations of the song.

McCulloh’s findings included facts such as that, as well as rearrangement of the three frequent elements, the person who goes into the pines or who is decapitated has been described as a man, a woman, an adolescent, a wife, a husband or a parent, while the pines have represented sexuality, death or loneliness.

The train has been described killing a loved one, as taking one’s beloved away or as leaving an itinerant worker far from home.

In variants where the song describes a confrontation, the person being challenged is always a woman, and never a man. The Kossoy Sisters folk version asks, “Little girl, little girl, where’d you stay last night? Not even your mother knows.”

The reply to one version’s “Where did you get that dress, and those shoes that are so fine?” is “from a man in the mines, who sleeps in the pines.”

The theme of a woman who has been caught doing something she should not is also common to many variants.

One variant, sang in the early twentieth century by the Ellison clan (Ora Ellison, deceased) in Lookout Mountain Georgia, told of the rape of a young Georgia girl, who fled to the pines in shame. Her rapist, a male soldier, was later beheaded by the train. Mrs. Ellison had stated that it was her belief that the song was from the time shortly after the civil war.

The only conclusion to be drawn is that this great song, over many many years, took on a life of it’s own, mutated into countless versions – even absorbing other songs into the mix – but retained it’s inherent, elemental power, it’s timelessness!


Here are the lyrics to the best known version, officially ascribed to the great Huddie Ledbetter!

My girl, my girl, don’t lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I’m going where the cold wind blows

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

Her husband, was a hard working man
Just about a mile from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
But his body never was found

My girl, my girl, don’t lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I’m going where the cold wind blows

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, don’t lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I’m going where the cold wind blows

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

Cream – Disraeli Gears [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED] [EXTRA TRACKS] [DELUXE EDITION] – FLAC

Cream – Disraeli Gears [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED] [EXTRA TRACKS] [DELUXE EDITION] – FLAC

Audio CD (September 28, 2004)
Original Release Date: September 28, 2004
Number of Discs: 2
Format: Original recording remastered, Extra tracks, Deluxe Edition
Label: Polydor / Umgd
ASIN: B0002XDOBC

Disraeli Gears was the second album by British blues-rock legends Cream.

Cream, of course, included music masters, bassist/lead vocalist Jack Bruce, guitarist Eric Clapton, and drummer Ginger Baker. They were celebrated as the first great power trio and supergroup of rock. Their sound was characterised by a hybrid of blues, pop and psychedelic rock.

https://i0.wp.com/i203.photobucket.com/albums/aa2/Keath007/225px-Cream_band.jpgCream combined Clapton’s blues guitar playing with the powerful voice and intense basslines of Jack Bruce and the jazz-influenced drumming of Ginger Baker. They have sold over 35 million albums worldwide, while their Wheels of Fire LP was the world’s first platinum-selling double album.

Cream made a significant impact upon the popular music of the time, providing a heavy yet technically proficient musical theme that foreshadowed the emergence of bands such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and The Jeff Beck Group in the late 1960s. The band’s live performances influenced progressive rock acts such as Rush, jam bands such as The Allman Brothers Band, Grateful Dead and Phish, and even heavy metal bands such as Black Sabbath.

Cream were ranked #16 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.

https://i2.wp.com/upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/c/cb/DisraeliGears.jpg/200px-DisraeliGears.jpgDisraeli Gears was released in November 1967 and went on to reach #5 on the UK album chart. It was also their American breakthrough, becoming a massive seller there in 1968, reaching #4 on American charts.

The album features the two classic singles “Strange Brew” and “Sunshine of Your Love“. By this time, the group was veering quite heavily away from their blues roots to indulge in more psychedelic sounds.

The title of the album, Disraeli Gears, was actually a bit of an inside joke. Eric Clapton had been thinking of buying a racing bicycle, and was discussing it with Ginger Baker, when Mick Turner, one of the roadies, commented on the performance of “those Disraeli Gears” meaning to say “derailleur gears”!! The band thought this was hilarious, and decided that it should be the title of their next album. Had it not been for Mick, the album would simply have been entitled Cream.
https://i1.wp.com/www.bbc.co.uk/music/sevenages/assets/artists/cream/gallery/1.jpg

Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker all contributed songs with the help of lyricist Pete Brown and producer Felix Pappalardi. The track “Blue Condition” was unusual in that Baker, although by any account not a singer, took the lead vocal. The album was recorded in New York by their American label, the Atco division of Atlantic Records during the band’s stay in the United States.

The psychedelic cover art was created by Australian artist Martin Sharp, who lived in the same building as Clapton at the time of the Chelsea artists colony The Pheasantry. At their first meeting in a London club, Clapton mentioned that he had some music that needed lyrics, so Sharp wrote out a poem he had composed on a napkin and gave it to Clapton, who recorded it as “Tales of Brave Ulysses”.

When interviewed on the episode of the VH1 show, Classic Albums, which featured Disraeli Gears, Bruce stated that when writing the song “Take it Back”, he had been inspired by the contemporary media images of American students burning their draft cards and wrote the song in that spirit of rejecting militarism.

In 2004, this version of the album was released as a 2-disc Deluxe edition including the complete album in both mono and stereo, demos, alternate takes and tracks taken from the band’s live sessions on BBC radio.

Rolling Stone review (Jan 20, 1968);

Within the grooves of this record are miles of listening pleasure. Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker are simply superb musicians with the gift of unending virtuosity. The title of the album, as Eric explains it, is a pun. The group was driving along one day trying to think of names for the record, coming up with things like “Elephant Gerald” (Ella Fitzgerald) and hit upon “Disraeli Gears,” a word play on English racing bicycles which have derailer gears.

Unfortunately the album does not totally hang together, marred by some poor material. They usually compensate for what they lack as composers and songwriters by thorough brilliance of performance. But in some tracks (“We’re going Wrong,” “Dance the Night Away” and “Blue Condition,” among them), the material is too pale to support the heavy instrumental work which makes Cream such an overwhelming trio.

“Strange Brew” stands out as the most complex song and rather an unusual one in that Eric uses reverb—to stunningly mean and sensual effect—and it is really very far away from the usual blues stylings for which he has been noted. In some places in the song, it sounds like the guitar has been triple-tracked.

“Sunshine of Your Love” (an incredibly strong number) and “Tales of Brave Ulysses” are typical Cream pieces. They are structured on a simple, repeating run of heavily syncopated descending (or ascending) chords. In these songs, and on “Outside Woman Blues,” where the chord structure is classic, the beauty of Cream becomes readily evident: Clapton’s lines, Baker’s dynamics, and, to a slightly lesser extent, Bruce’s runs are so simply put together that the listener has no choice but to stand in awe of their precision, grace and exquisite sense of time.

“Swlabr” (pronounced “Slobber”?) and “Take It Back” are also two excellent cuts (these written by Jack Bruce and Peter Brown). Cream’s new album is more difficult to get into, and thus more rewarding, then the first one. Fresh Cream was recorded over a year and a half ago, at a time when the group was less than two months old. This new LP reflects a more original direction, greater musical sophistication (the guitar is double-tracked throughout) and the polish of a year together.

Despite their recorded shortcomings, Cream happens to be one of the great modern rock and roll groups. If you aren’t already hip to it, pick up on Fresh Cream (Atco 33-206) and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers (London PS 492), a highly polished album which features Eric in a strict blues context.

On top of the music in the new LP, there is the cover done in exploding day-glo style. The photo-montage on the back is reflective of the fact that Eric Clapton happens to be a Nikon-freak.

Two giants of very different musical genres here combine in a fascinating work!

This Blue Note release documents the boys’ special performances on January 12 and 13, 2007 at Jazz at the Lincoln Center, where they tackle some classic blues and jazz numbers.

The collaboration apparently came about when Natalie Cole had to cancel a series of shows with Wynton’s band at the last minute and somehow Willie stepped into the breach.

An album for real fans of music! Willie meets N’yorlans!

No, Willie doesn’t try to pay the trumpet! Neither does Wynton start crooning “You were always on my mind”!

Here’s some info on the project;

NowThe event was simply billed as “Willie Nelson Sings the Blues,” but the historic two-night stand on January 12 and 13, 2007 at Jazz at Lincoln Center was far more than that. Call it a summit meeting between two American icons, Willie Nelson & Wynton Marsalis, two of the most significant figures in modern-day country and jazz, who discovered common ground in their love for jazz standards and the blues.

Their performance stirred the sounds of New Orleans, Nashville, Austin and New York City into a brilliantly programmed mix that was equal parts down-home and cosmopolitan, with plenty of swing and just a touch of melancholy.

To say that these shows were a hot ticket would be an understatement!

Luckily, the tapes were rolling and the results of this unique collaboration now constitute the Blue Note album Two Men With The Blues for everyone who couldn’t cram into The Allen Room. Featuring great playing from one of the hottest bands around these classic tracks are given new life by the extraordinary dual talents of Willie Nelson and Wynton Marsalis.

At a time when most people are thinking of retirement, Willie has never been busier. His profile has been high in recent weeks with his various career retrospective releases and sold out tour and this album can rightly stake it’s place alongside anything else he has done.

Wynton rarely sounds so relaxed and both of these musical giants are clearly having the time of their lives together on these new interpretations of some of the greatest songs of the 20th century.

Everyone knew that this summit of master musicians would be special. The session was recently broadcast on National Public Radio’s Jazz at Lincoln Center, and as we already have an Amazon video excerpt of the event, we can expect to see the entire meeting on PBS, with DVD as pledge gift.

The CD, however, has had the opportunity for further electronic mixing and improvements by Delfeayo Marsalis and Jeff Jones.

So what can we say about the quality of the music and the personalities? How many superlatives are there? But you first must be a Willie Nelson fan and you must be a jazz enthusiast who honors Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Jazz folk for their precision and urban sophisticated development of New Orleans roots.

Thus if you are among that very large number of music lovers, you must own this recording. Even the insert notes and photos are nicely done.

As for the selections, we have Nelson’s own oft recorded theme song, Georgia on My Mind, and we also have Stardust, which was included in the album of the same title that demonstrated that Nelson was more than a country singer; indeed that album is his all-time best seller. I, however, enjoyed Rainy Day Blues and the other tunes that follow, which are what the album is supposed to be about: the blues.

This album is simply fun. You will love it.
