Blues Break: Two by Blind Willie Johnson
Dark was the Night, Cold was the Ground
A great "moaning" piece by Blind Willie Johnson (1897-1945), born in Brenham, Texas. This song is one of the tracks on NASA's Voyager Golden Record. Launched in 1977, Voyager left the outer limits of the solar system in 2004.
Trouble Soon Be Over Performed with a wonderful young singer whose name isn't available.
