NGC - Scrapper or Eric version?
« on: July 26, 2021, 06:49:12 AM »
Great old song from the 1920's.  Been recorded over the years by innumerable artists.
So ................
Scrapper Blackwell version ..... ?
              or
Eric Clapton version... ?

This is my choice.

Thanks, I think it’s the best version as well.

I got introduced to  Nobody Knows by the Bessie Smith version and always thought of that as the standard, long before EC's version , (which I do like a lot).  Heard Scrappers version a couple of years back and have been digging it ever since. Thanks for posting

These hillbillies do a nice job with the song on the back porch:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VW_jQ5dIcTo


 They claim they want justice and equality, but what they really want is revenge and superiority.

The song is on the double Derek & Dominos album, isn't it?
Doesn't get better than that......

Will certainly listen to Bessie Smith singing it, though.

great stuff.  Then, scroll down to Otis Rush and "I can't quit you baby".
