Every Day I Have the Blues

One the most well known of blues standards, this song has been recorded by so many of the greats, from Memphis Slim who re-worked an earlier version and sent it on it's way.  Four versions of the song reached the top ten of Billboards R&B Charts, and Count Basie with Big Joe Williams and B. B. King won Grammy's for their versions. (Wikipedia)  Where did this great song come from?  Well, it was written by an early blues pianist, Aaron "Pinetop" Sparks, along with his brother Marion.  A fine boogie-woogie piano player, Pinetop recorded the song in 1935.  Unfortunately, he died that same year at the age of 29 so we have little else from him.  Pinetop's version of the song features his falsetto singing, a style that many bluesmen like Robert Johnson and Tommy Johnson favored in that era.  Memphis Slim's version, first recorded under the name "Nobody Loves Me" in 1949, retained the opening verse of Pinetop's song, but changed the lyrics after that, and he sang the song in a normal vocal range.  Even so, his song retains the lonesome feel of the earlier song. Here are both versions of the song.
