Leadbelly-Where Did You Sleep Last Night.wma

Huddie Ledbetter, aka Leadbelly. One of the pioneers of the blues. Discovered by John Lomax, the man without whom we wouldn't have some of the songs we do today. Lomax traveled the south recording these songs that nobody out of the area had ever heard. This song dates back to at least 1870. So if you like true traditional blues, then this song is for you. Nothing fancy. Just Leadbelly and his guitar. Some of you may recognize this song. Nirvana covered it on their Unplugged album.
