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.
