Composed by Skip James
From: UK
Mood: Restless, Yearning, Aching, Pain, Solemn, Sad, Depressing, Contemplative

Despite the vocal style of James (not appreciated by myself) this track is a true masterpiece - listful, solemn and mysterious. Numerous good covers inc. Kelly Joe Phelps, & Chris Thomas King (O Brother Where art thou). The original's guitarwork is superior to other versions - sparse and perfectly timed. However Phelps has, in my oppinion, a more appripraite voice for the track.



Other Versions: Look above.
