Dark Was The Night

Dark Was The Night by Blind Willie Johnson
Released: Jun 1998
Label: Columbia/Legacy
Almost as desolate and foreboding as Alan Lomax's field recordings of the despairing work songs sung by the inmates of Mississippi's Parchman Farm penitentiary, this collection reveals the dark soul of Johnson's acoustic blues. At times his voice is so gritty, you'd swear he was gargling hot molten lava.
