Has anyone pointed out yet that Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" is stolen from Do-Boy Diamond's "Going Away Blues?" bounce

I think Willie had the rights, but McKinley Morganfield might have had a bigger hit.

Did Bob have a hit?

Gracias. No, Bob did not have a hit, Melvin Belli.  I should have put the query in "MAJOR LABEL ALBUM FILLER SWIPED FROM THE BLACK & BLUE"      

While we're on the subject of that album, i might ask who first patented the form of the hypnosis jam "IF YOU EVER FIND YOURSELF IN HOUSTON AT THAT INTERSECTION NEAR BETSY" ... this one reminds me of Steve Reich, but the roots must go deep deeper

If you ever go to Hooston you'd better walk right, you'd better not stagger and you'd better not fight.  My friend Eccles said that but I think Lonnie said it before Eccles said it.  What do you think?

I've heard tell that it was a very big hit for Mr. Lonnie Donegan, and I heard it myself on the radio, sung by I did not know who.

The innernet says it was #16 in the US in 1960--sung by Mr. Paul Evans (possibly a Welshman?)--so it must have been him I heard.

Mr. Donegan seems to have been a '60s folkie--except it was the '50s when he was doing it:

"Rock Island Line" / "John Henry" (1955) – UK No. 8
"Lost John" / "Stewball" (1956) – UK No. 2
"Don't You Rock Me Daddy-O" (1957) – UK No. 4
"Cumberland Gap" (1957) – UK No. 1
"Jack O' Diamonds" (1957) – UK No. 14
"The Grand Coulee Dam" (1958) – UK No. 6
"Midnight Special" (1958)
"Tom Dooley" (1958) – UK No. 3
"Aunt Rhody" (1959) – UK No. 3
"Darling Corey" (1959) – UK No. 2

This other one in 1936 might have been a hit of sorts (I don't really remember geek ) but I doubt the artist made much money from it:

but the true question is is Burt Sugarman's The Midnight Special named after the song by the houston prisoners



The phrase "Saturday night special" (SNS) is a colloquial term used in the United States and Canada for any inexpensive handgun. Saturday night specials have been defined as compact, inexpensive, small-caliber handguns with perceived low quality; however, there is no official definition of "Saturday night special" under federal law, though some states define "Saturday night specials" or "junk guns" by means of composition or materials strength. Low cost and high availability make these weapons attractive to many buyers despite their shortcomings. In the late 19th century and early 20th century, they were commonly referred to as suicide specials.

The term "Saturday night special" came into wider use with the passing of the Gun Control Act of 1968. The term (and the gun control act itself) have been described as racist in origin because the act banned the importation and manufacture of many inexpensive firearms, most notably a large number of revolvers made by Röhm Gesellschaft, which were typically purchased and owned by low-income African Americans. With importation banned, a number of companies in the United States began production of inexpensive handguns, including Raven Arms, Jennings Firearms, Phoenix Arms, Lorcin Engineering Company, Davis Industries, Arcadia Machine & Tool, and Sundance Industries, which collectively came to be known as the "Ring of Fire companies".
