For Becky's meme, I decided to do the extra credit part and share it with my readers. I noticed this morning that Leadbelly's version of "Irene Good Night" was one of the songs listed for 1944.
One advantage to being a mediocre singer and lousy guitar player is that I don't take myself too seriously. So rather than record over and over looking for perfection, you folks get to view the first and only take. And I get to have some worry-free fun.
If you wonder why I'm cracking up on the first chorus, it's because my cameraman (Cliff) was mooning me from behind the camera. And other assorted ornery things we won't talk about. He just wasn't taking his job seriously. Hmph.
Just to show that I can take constructive criticism, I took Jerry's advice given after my last little music show and tried to dress up like a country singer for this video.
