Several blues musicians have interpreted and recorded variations on "Some Baby Blues".[1] "Muddy Waters calls his 'Trouble No More' and Big Maceo titled his 'Worried Life Blues'. Be that as it may ... they all derive from Sleepy John Estes' 1935 classic 'Someday Baby Blues'."[3]

As he did with "Rollin' Stone", "Rollin' and Tumblin'", "Walkin' Blues", and "Baby Please Don't Go", Muddy Waters took an older country blues and made it into a Chicago blues.[1] Waters also modified the lyrics, using "Someday baby, you ain't gonna trouble, poor me anymore" instead of Estes' "Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry, my mind anymore" (Estes' 1938 version "New Someday Baby" uses "trouble" in place of "worry;" Bob Dylan's 2006 "Someday Baby" uses "trouble, poor me anymore").

Backing Waters were Jimmy Rogers on electric guitar, Little Walter on amplified harmonica, Otis Spann on piano, Willie Dixon on bass, and Francis Clay on drums. Sometimes known as the "Headhunters", a loose group of fellow Chess recording artists, they were instrumental in defining Chicago blues.[4][1]

Other renditions

The Allman Brothers Band recorded their arrangement of Muddy Waters' "Trouble No More" for their debut album The Allman Brothers Band (1969).[5] A 1971 live recording of the song from the Fillmore East was included on Eat a Peach (1972)[6] Both albums were best sellers (The Allman Brothers Band was certified "Gold," Eat A Peach as "Platinum") and brought "Trouble No More" to a new level of recognition.[7]

In 2000, guitarist Larry Coryell along with his sons Julian and Murali recorded the song for the album Coryells.[8][9][importance?]
