Comments
Melodically indebted to When the Sun Goes Down by Leroy Carr (1935).

"Love In Vain is no less a masterpiece because Johnson shaped it to match a recent hit. For a virtually unknown Delta guitarist to aspire to the level of sophistication of a defining urban blues star like Leroy Carr, was not a sign of weakness, but a daring leap of the imagination". (Elijah Wald)
