Love, old Careless Love...

in #tribesteemup3 years ago (edited)

Careless love is a beautiful old blues standard of unknown origins. It's definitely been played in New Orleans all the way back to the late 1800s, but no one quite knows where it actually came from.

It's lyrics are usually themed around heartbreak and waywardness...

This song has been recorded by everyone from Lonnie Johnson to Louis Armstrong, to Bessie Smith, Lead Belly, Bo Carter, etc etc.... Pretty much every blues and folk musician does some kind of version of it, whether they know it or not.

My favorite recordings are by Blind Boy Fuller and Fats Domino. Be sure to check those out!

I might not be able to hold a candle to those timeless renditions, but here's my shot at it anyway! It's a fun one...

Thanks for reading y'all .. hope you like the music.

Thanks!! Yeah I go out there sometimes. I've played a show there also. Nice spot. I play at the Tap Room in town sometimes.. which is their sister restaurant.
