Nobody Wants You When You’re Down and Out – Scrapper Blackwell

Never heard of him until Shari mentioned him. If you have Apple Music, search for “essentials of Scrapper Blackwell.”

There must be 100 musicians that have recorded this; the ones I was familiar with were Eric Clapton and Hot Tuna.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:

  1. This track doesn’t sound like before Robert Johnson. It sounds like it was recorded with ’50s-’60s technology.

    I just checked, and it was recorded in 1961.
