14 Goodnight Irene

Music Video by HP Schmider performing "Goodnight Irene", a traditional, American folk-song, first recorded by the legendary blues musician ‚Lead Belly‘ with his twelve-string acoustic-guitar in 1933. The most famous covers were recorded by ‚The Weavers‘ in 1950 and by ‚Eric Clapton‘ in 1982. The lyrics tells about the singer's troubled past with his love Irene – expressing his tremendous sadness and suicidal fantasies.

I present pure acoustic-music - especially rhythm 'n blues and southern gospels - recorded in the humble acoustic-studio under the roof of my old house in the Black Forest Mountains in Germany.
