Product Description & Reviews

Simply put, "The greatest rural spiritual artist to record" ( Rolling Stone Record Guide ). Johnson's apocalyptic Christian vision, his unbelievable bottleneck playing and his unmistakable vocal growl pack a shattering emotional punch perhaps matched only by Robert Johnson. 30 sides, including Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground . In the history of recorded blues and spirituals, there is no greater singer and songwriter than Blind Willie Johnson. With a vocal delivery ranging from raw rage to tenderness wedded to his talking guitar, Blind Willie's recordings are as powerful today as when he made them, from 1927 to 1930. Listen to monuments "Motherless Children Have a Hard Time," "I Just Can't Keep from Crying," "It's Nobody's Fault but Mine," and the otherworldly "Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground," and try to find equally visceral conviction any other place or time. His "If I Had My Way I'd Tear The Building Down" which got him arrested when Blind Willie unknowingly sang it in front of a U.S. government building in Dallas, became a '60s icon. Years later, he caught pneumonia, but when treatment was sought, he was told the hospital did not treat blind people, so he returned home and died. --Alan Greenberg
