Singing the blues these days? Check out a few videos here....
The first is from a guy named Blind Willie Johnson (1897-1945), whom my friend Barrett F turned me onto. Blind Willie was a blind preacher & musician who lived in Hearne, TX, just outside of Aggieland (he was, I'm sure, an Aggie!). Here is a video (recreated obviously but the music is original), called "Trouble Soon Be Over":
The second is a cover by Canadian Bruce Cockburn of another song by Blind Willie called "What is the Soul of a Man?".
Blind Willie is a great blues musician. Cockburn makes me want to be able to play the blues! Just for the record, I'm almost pretty much convinced that the blues are the modern day equivalent of lament psalms in the OT. Maybe we could put a few of them to the blues?
Here's a few more songs on the WWW of Blind Willie.
