Alan Lomax, then 24, took him under his wing and helped raise money for his legal expenses, dropping out of graduate school to do so. During the first half of the decade, he recorded for RCA , the Library of Congress , and Moe Asch future founder of Folkways Records and in went to California , where he recorded strong sessions for Capitol Records.

He lodged with a studio guitar player on Merrywood Drive in Laurel Canyon. Lead Belly was the first American country blues musician to achieve success in Europe.

Later in the year he began his first European tour with a trip to France , but fell ill before its completion and was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ALS , or Lou Gehrig 's disease a motor neuron disease. Martha also performed at that concert, singing spirituals with her husband. Lead Belly was imprisoned multiple times beginning in when he was convicted of carrying a pistol and sentenced to time on the Harrison County chain gang.

He later escaped and found work in nearby Bowie County under the assumed name of Walter Boyd. During his second prison term, another inmate stabbed him in the neck leaving him with a fearsome scar he subsequently covered with a bandana ; Lead Belly nearly killed his attacker with his own knife.

In he was pardoned and released after writing a song to Governor Pat Morris Neff seeking his freedom, having served the minimum seven years of a 7-toyear sentence.

Combined with his good behavior, which included entertaining the guards and fellow prisoners, his appeal to Neff's strong religious beliefs proved sufficient. It was a testament to his persuasive powers, as Neff had run for governor on a pledge not to issue pardons the only recourse for prisoners, since in most Southern prisons there was no provision for parole.

In , Ledbetter was sentenced to Louisiana State Penitentiary after a summary trial for attempted homicide for stabbing a man in a fight. In , Lead Belly served his final jail term for assault after stabbing a man in a fight in Manhattan. There are several conflicting stories about how Ledbetter acquired the nickname "Lead Belly", but he probably acquired it while in prison. Some claim his fellow inmates called him "Lead Belly" as a play on his family name and his physical toughness.

Others say he earned the name after being wounded in the stomach with buckshot. Blues singer Big Bill Broonzy thought it came from a supposed tendency to lie about as if "with a stomach weighted down by lead" in the shade when the chain gang was supposed to be working. Lead Belly styled himself "King of the Twelve-String Guitar," and despite his use of other instruments like the accordion, the most enduring image of Lead Belly as a performer is wielding his unusually large Stella twelve-string.

It had slotted tuners and ladder bracing. Lead Belly played with finger picks much of the time, using a thumb pick to provide walking bass lines described as "tricky" and "inventive" [21] and occasionally to strum. In fact, scholars have suggested much of his guitar playing was inspired equally by barrelhouse piano and the Mexican Bajo sexto , an instrument he encountered in Texas and Louisiana.

Lead Belly's tunings are debated by both modern and contemporary musicians and blues enthusiasts alike — exacerbated by the lack of film footage of his performing rendering chord decoding difficult — but it seems to be a down-tuned variant of standard tuning; it is likely that he tuned his guitar strings relative to one another, so that the actual notes shifted as the strings wore.

Such down-tuning was a common technique before the development of truss rods , and was intended to prevent the instrument's neck from warping. Lead Belly's playing style was popularized by Pete Seeger , who adopted the twelve-string guitar in the s and released an instructional LP and book using Lead Belly as an exemplar of technique. In some of the recordings in which Lead Belly accompanied himself, he would make an unusual type of grunt between his verses, sometimes described as "haah!

The hammer rings, and we swing, and we sing. Mosley as Lead Belly. Bob Dylan credits Lead Belly for getting him into Folk music. And that record changed my life right then and there. It was like an explosion went off. It was like somebody laid hands on me. I must have played that record a hundred times. Lonnie Donegan 's recording of " Rock Island Line ", released as a single in late , signalled the start of the UK skiffle craze. Therefore no Lead Belly, no Beatles.

Wood concurred. It contains cover versions of Lead Belly songs, and features a six-minute Alan Lomax interview. George Ezra developed his singing style from trying to sing like Lead Belly. In , in celebration of Lead Belly's th birthday, several events were held. Influenced by the sinking of the Titanic in April , Ledbetter wrote the song "The Titanic", [34] his first composition on the twelve-string guitar, which later became his signature instrument.

Initially played when performing with Blind Lemon Jefferson — in and around Dallas, Texas , the song is about champion African-American boxer Jack Johnson 's being denied passage on the Titanic.

Johnson had in fact been denied passage on a ship for being black, but it was not the Titanic. The Captain, he says, 'I ain't haulin' no coal!

Fare thee well! Although there were a total of 53 takes, only six were ever released during Lead Belly's lifetime. There were a total of 14 takes, with 10 of them being selected for the album Negro Sinful Songs. These sessions were held on June 15 and 17, with the Golden Gate Quartet accompanying some songs. The recordings resulted in an album being issued by Victor Records , which contained extensive notes and song texts prepared by Alan Lomax. According to Charles Wolfe and Kip Lornell, "it was one of the finest public presentations of Leadbelly's music: well recorded, well advertised, well documented.

And the album justified its reputation as a landmark in African American folk music. Asch owned a recording studio and small record label, which mainly released folk records for the local New York City market. The Library of Congress recordings, made by John and Alan Lomax from to , were released in a six-volume series by Rounder Records :.
