Larkin Poe - "Black Betty"


Recommended Posts

I had a vinyl of Leadbelly doing this back in '63 that was somewhat different from this, still, of interest.


I'm not sure this really is Leadbelly himself regardless.


Then about the same time, Koerner, Ray and Glover had a version of it recorded. A lot faster.

I do still really enjoy Billy Bartlett and the boys of Ram Jam's hard rocking '77 version!





A little historic footnote on Ram Jam and the legacy of that song:




A little political white guilt crushed Bill Bartlett and Black Betty... Pathetic!

I really don't cotton-to political fascism and the harm it causes to American Freedom in such distasteful ways!
