AIN'T GOT NO HOME

Latest update on 16/04/2010

Artist: Clarence "Frogman" Henry
Author: Clarence Henry
Label: Argo
Year: 1956

Musically inspired by BB King's Woke Up This Morning ('53 - RPM). Written while playing four nights a week in a Gretna night club where no-one ever seemed to go home. First came out on the B-side of Troubles Troubles, but DJ Poppa Stoppa flipped the record over, eventually landing Clarence his nickname. Sang it with three different voices, imitating a frog with the lowest.
