    Some youtuber has adjusted the old RJ recording timings. Slowed this one down and it sounds exactly right.

    That's a strange one - it doesn't sound much like the rest of his recordings either in the playing style or voice. I even doubted it was him til I looked it up.

    Good old Nappy Brown doing "Don't be Angry". Songs like this just help the day go by.

    oddly, never really liked robert johnson, perhaps because he was so lauded, or just something about the voice ...

    ive been busy buying up early vinyls like mad for my blues nights, including a bunch of spoken word and field recordings ...

    have come across a unaccompanied sung version of dark was the night, cold was the ground appears to be by blind willie johnsons wife angeline ... cant find a ref to it online, doesnt seem to exist digitised on youtube etc so cant link you to it but its incredible

    right now im so immersed, i feel like i got the old time religion !

    Don't like Robert Johnson? Hand in your badge & i.d.card immediately.

    So have you got this recording of Dark Was The Night? What record does it appear on - any chance you could post it online somewhere?

    The wonderful Kent DuChaine is touring around the UK this year. There's a little info about dates and such on his website.



    I was lucky enough to catch him in a tiny little Devon pub a few weeks back. A real treat, whether you're a big blues fan or not, to witness a performer with such passion and skill.

    The guitar, "Lead Bessie", is apparently 84 years old. Kent often chats between songs, sometimes about the instrument's history.
