A stunning collection of artists and performances celebrate the timeless appeal of legendary gospel bluesman Blind Willie Johnson. Blind Willie Johnson's seminal songs have inspired artists like Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton to interpret his musical vision. Produced by Jeffrey Gaskill.


The artists are well-chosen and totally committed, and the new versions capture the raw beauty of the original recordings. There's not a false note in the batch and moments of revelation are everywhere. From Sinead O'Connor's righteous cries on Trouble Will Soon Be Over and Derek Trucks' and Susan Tedeschi's reverent reading of Keep Your Lamp Trimmed And Burning, from Lucinda Williams' slide guitar-fueled lament in Nobody's Fault But Mine and Tom Waits' virtual embodiment of Johnson himself on John The Revelator, this record is packed with transcendent recordings that speak as much to the greatness of the performers as they do the enduring legacy of Blind Willie Johnson.
