We recorded a blues song called Black Night in our kitchen today. The song was written by Jessie Mae Robinson in 1951 and was a hit for Charles Brown. We like the Holly Golightly version too. Hope you like our version.

I hope my little bit of German was right? If it's not, blame Google Translate.

"Google translate" did a good job here, don't worry! Thanks, Eroll!

Yes yes yes. This is LOVELY. The great New Orleans pianist James Booker also cut a marvellous version of this song. A classic....and Charles Brown, what is there to say??

That version was new to us, but we watched it on YT. We absolutly agree with you, it's fantastic!
We also enjoyed watching your YT-Channel, really great blues songs!
