Lonely Boy (back to the Blues)

Recommended Posts

I went way "back in the alley" to pull off  this  song.  My inspiration was a song done back in 1956 called "Ain't Got No Home" which was  done by Clarence "Frogman" Henry.  I think that this song does not sound anything like the Frogman's but I did borrow from the concept or idea.   Besides  --   unlike the Frogman --- I can not sing like a girl or like a frog.  However, I hope that I captured some of the fun and mood of of his song.

It is a simple song with two rhythm guitars (chords and notes), another guitar for accents and the lead break, bass guitar, drums and vocals.  I used the Amplitude 1957 Fender guitar amp in hopes of getting some of the grit that seemed to be present in the R & B guitar sounds of that era.

For you old guys maybe you might remember Mr. Henry's original song (when you were a wee bit of a rug rat like me).  For you young guys maybe it might introduce you to an R & B song that became a crossover hit.

I have learned a lot from the comments, suggestions, crit.'s, etc. that I have received from y'all and would appreciate  your input for this one.

Thanks!

LONELY  BOY

It's so sad that not too many people make music like this anymore. 😢  One has to look very deep to find it.

Freddy, you constantly remind me of how great 12 bar blues is.  You would be a great one to lead a revival.

Keep on keeping on my brother. You are roots rock, R&B, blues, rockabilly, etc, rolled up in one big package!

Its always Christmas Day for me when I hear a new one from Freddy J. I remember the little listening booths at Wallich’s Music City, grooving’ to the latest singles…

I totally “missed” the reference, you should link the Frogman, totally worth a listen. Gotta get the forumites “hipped” baby.
