이 앨범 자켓은 왜 검은가....SUPER DELUXE EDITION 음반으로 발매된 것이라 이런 색상인가보다.
원래는 하얀색인데...

이번에 소개할 3번곡은 2번곡의 블루스 믹스 형태가 아닌, 완벽한 블루스다.
헉...젠장...쓰다보니 3번곡인 YOU SHOOK ME가 아닌 8번곡이네...아 먼일이래...

"I Can't Quit You Baby" is a blues standard written by Willie Dixon and first recorded by Chicago blues artist Otis Rush in 1956.[1] It was Rush's first recording and became a record chart hit. The song, a slow twelve-bar blues, has been recorded by various artists, including Led Zeppelin, who included it on their debut album.

이 곡은 WILLLIE DIXON이 작곡을 했고, 시카고 블루스 아티스트인 1956년에 OTIS RUSH가 첫 번째로 레코딩한 곡이란다.
블루스의 전형인 12마디의 패턴이라고 되어있네.
즉, 코드가 3개로 구성이 되었다는 말이겠군.

그 이후 설명은 1956년에 발매하고 빌보드의 리듬 앤 블루스 레코드 차트에 6위까지 도달.
연주자 및 기타 내용이 자세히 설명이 되어있으나, 난 원곡을 그렇게까지 열심히 알 필요가 없으므로...
LED ZEPPELIN 곡에 대해서 파는게 맞겠지.

하지만, 원곡은 들어보는게 예의 아니겠나.

English rock band Led Zeppelin recorded "I Can't Quit You Baby" for their 1969 debut album Led Zeppelin. Their rendition generally follows Otis Rush's 1966 Vanguard version, but with different instrumentation and dynamics. It also incorporates a break during the guitar solo where Jimmy Page plays a four-bar unaccompanied set-up before relaunching into the solo. Although biographer Keith Shadwick notes Page's fluff on the turnaround coming out of the solo, he concludes the song "ends up as one of the most successful pieces on the first album, with no flat spots and a perfectly symmetrical form, all within the classic blues tradition".

뭐라 적혔나 보자...보자...
데뷰 앨범에 넣었다는 글, 원곡이 아닌 VANGUARD VERSION이라는데..그 버전은 원곡과는 좀 다른 버전인가 본데...

이것이 OTIS RUSH - VILLAGE VANGUARD, NEW YORK, 1978 버전이라는데...1966년 버전은 음나봅니다.

Led Zeppelin regularly performed "I Can't Quit You Baby" in concert from 1968 to early 1970. Two live versions from 1969 are included on the 1997 Led Zeppelin BBC Sessions. A performance of the song on January 9, 1970, at Royal Albert Hall is included on the 2003 Led Zeppelin DVD (an edited version of this performance was released on the 1982 Coda album). In 1970, the song was dropped from Led Zeppelin's typical concert lineup as they incorporated material from Led Zeppelin III into their shows, with "I Can't Quit You Baby" essentially being replaced by "Since I've Been Loving You". It was however revived as part of the "Whole Lotta Love" medley during some Led Zeppelin concerts in 1972 and 1973. The song was rehearsed by the surviving members of Led Zeppelin for the May 14, 1988, Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary Celebration, but was not performed during the event.

앨범에 수록하기도 전에 벌써 라이브 공연을 했다고 하는거 보니, 이 곡을 어지간히도 좋아했었나보다.

블루스는 라이브지.
느낌 좋은데, 어떤 공연인지에 대한 정보가 없어서 나도 소개 못함.
다른 영상을 보니 복장이 비슷한 것이, LIVE ROYAL ALBERT HALL 1970인거 같다.

워낙에 유명한 곡이니...화이트 가이의 블루스 보다는 아무래도
블루스의 근원이 블랙 가이들한테 있다보니, 그 내면에서 뿜어져 나오는 느낌이 인위적이지 않은 라이브를 하나
소개하면서 끝내야 겠다.


이 많은 사람들이 다시 연주를 했다고 설명을 적어놨네요.

Blues historian Gerard Herzhaft identifies "I Can't Quit You Baby" as a blues standard.[1] Rush's original Cobra single was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame in 1994, which described it as "a Willie Dixon production revealing Rush as an extraordinary talent with an impassioned approach."[4] A variety of artists have recorded the song, including John Lee Hooker for the album More Real Folk Blues (1966, released in 1991); Savoy Brown Blues Band as "Can't Quit You Baby" on Purdah single 45 3503 (1966), also Blues Anytime Vol. 2 (1968);[10] John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers for Crusade (1967); Little Milton on Checker single 1212 (1969);[1] Willie Dixon from I Am the Blues (1969); Dread Zeppelin from Un-Led-Ed (1990)[11]; Gary Moore from Power of the Blues (2004); and the Rolling Stones from Blue & Lonesome (2016) with Eric Clapton on slide guitar.[12]

WIKI 정보에 잘 읽어보면
all within the classic blues tradition
말이 있는데...이 말이 참 잘 와 닿는 곡이라 생각된다.

마지막으로, 내가 왜 3번곡을 안하고 8번곡을 적기 시작했는지는 나도 잘 모르겠다.
