Orville Johnson: “That Lucky Old Sun”
 
February 4, 2015

The blues lament “That Lucky Old Sun” was written in 1949 and made popular through recordings by Frankie Laine, Louis Armstrong, Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin, Willie Nelson, Jerry Garcia, Johnny Cash, and many others. And Bob Dylan recently included the song on his Frank Sinatra tribute album Shadows in the Night. Peghead Nation Blues Guitar instructor Orville Johnson recorded a nice stripped-down version in the Peghead Nation studio with fingerstyle accompaniment and a smooth solo.
