About the Song
"Love in Vain" is a 1937 blues song written by Robert Johnson, and can be found on a number of compilation albums of Johnson's work (most notably on the vinyl album King of the Delta Blues Singers, Vol. II, that, along with Vol. 1, introduced Johnson to many later musicians); and on its original (and extremely rare) 78rpm single release (Vocalion 04630). The song is noted for its melancholic lyrics and tone, and extremely sad overall feeling and style. In the 1992 film "The Search For Robert Johnson", John P. Hammond plays Robert's recording of "Love In Vain" for the elderly Willie Mae Powell, the woman for whom it was supposedly written. Johnson moans "Oh, Willie Mae" in his last verse. Johnson was an admirer of blues singer/pianist Leroy Carr who, solo and with guitarist Scrapper Blackwell, cut some popular and influential recordings. 'Love In Vain' takes its musical structure from Carr's.    Download this sheet!
About the Artist
Robert Leroy Johnson (May 8, 1911 – August 16, 1938) was an American blues musician, among the most famous of Delta blues musicians. His landmark recordings from 1936–1937 display a remarkable combination of singing, guitar skills, and songwriting talent that have influenced generations of musicians. Johnson's shadowy, poorly documented life and death at age 27 have given rise to much legend. Considered to be the "Grandfather of Rock 'n' Roll", his vocal phrasing, original songs, and guitar style have influenced a broad range of musicians, including Muddy Waters, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Johnny Winter, Jeff Beck, and Eric Clapton, who called Johnson "the most important blues singer that ever lived". He was also ranked fifth in Rolling Stone's list of 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. He is an inductee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
