Tom Waits – The Soul Of A Man


tom

“Waits nails Johnson’s signature growling vocals and slide guitar work, and the production gives the track and old-timey feel, almost as if it were actually recorded in the 1920s. Altogether, it’s a toe-tapping homage to one of blues’ more publicly underrated legends, a man whose recording of “Dark Was The Night – Cold Was The Ground” was deemed important enough to be included on the gold record aboard Voyager 1.
The full album, entitled God Don’t Never Change: The Songs of Blind Willie Johnson, is out Feb. 26.”
