Tuesday music: If you only listen to American music, you just suck

With the path of Irma, here's something Caribbean.  Joseph Spence borrowed heavily from American blues, which I love, of course.  This one is a play on an old standard.  "Don't Take Everybody To Be Your Friend," From Good Morning, Mr. Walker.  You can find the American version under titles like "A True Friend Is Hard To Find," and many other variations on that theme.  Sort of fits in with the theme of backstabbing that I've been covering.  I thought about using "Out On The Rolling Sea," but that seemed a little on-the-nose...  Still, everyone should listen to Joseph Spence.
