Reseña de álbum

Perhaps the greatest of all slide players (far more inventive even than Elmore James), and with the kind of voice that could be heard on Judgment Day, Blind Willie Johnson wasn't a blues musician, although his music had all the soul and anguish of the blues. Instead, he was possibly the most singular gospel singer, whose music could sound as vital on a Saturday night berating the sinners as it could on a Sunday morning in church.
