Happy Mother's Day

Bo Carter - Corrine, Corrina - recorded 1928

Corrine Corrina was first recorded in 1928 by Armenter ‘Bo’ Chatmon (a.k.a. Bo Carter, the name under which the record was released). This song has a very interesting history as it was later recorded as one of the first rock and roll songs by Big Joe Turner (Atlantic Records), and then rewritten by Bob Dylan. It has been recorded as a blues, country, hillbilly, race, rock and roll, folk, and R&B song, with over 100 covers.

I use this song because Corrine and Corrina are the names of my beautiful wife and daughter! And because of both of them, we celebrate Mother's Day.
