Originals... Another Musical Journey

Coming from the Country Music thread... always an interesting journey to discover what popular music was actually new and popular 60-70 - 80 years ago...

Pretty common knowledge that Led Zepelin drew a lot of their music from early blues and that British musicians were responsible for the revival of the blues.

Memphis Minnie

Zep...

Leadbelly... 1944 (This song is even older)


Nirvana...

On The Wall:



That's an outright cover, not piracy like Led Zep went for though...

Judy Garland 1938

Eva Cassidy in her last public performance (1996), still gives me goosebumps.

The Blues never needed reviving in Arkansas, it's still alive and well.

I read a funny review the other day of a book about the 'rediscovery' of Son House 'who hadn't considered himself to be lost'

Indeed... think this version will be remembered and listened to 70 years from now.

Pretty common knowledge I think that The Animals weren't the first to do this song, but I think it's interesting that no one seems to be really sure exactly how old the song is. I believe this is the oldest known recording of it:


And of course The Animals' version:
The Animals were yet another British band that was heavily influenced by blues.

I also like Bob Dylan's version a lot.

If you check out the fine rockabilly compilations of the Imperial label, you will find a slew of tunes absconded with by Mssrs Sexter & crew. Why they credited Dorsey Burnette et al in some spots, but not others is beyond me. When they covered Eddie Cochran they usually modified the lyrics, so why not give everyone credit? No sir, I don't like it!
