Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child  performed by  Little Jimmy Scott  (1969)
Composed by Traditional
From: USA
Recommended by tinks [profile] on Tuesday 24th July 2001

Stunning version of this old standard. Jimmy Scott's voice is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful things in the world. I've never heard anybody else who could channel so much pain into a song. Regardless of your feelings toward David Lynch, you have to respect him for rescuing Scott's career from obscurity.

from The Source (Tangerine), available on CD (Label M.)

Other Versions: Donald Byrd; Herbie Mann; Memphis Slim; Len Horne; Paul Robeson; Mahalia Jackson; Sarah Vaughan;

  24 Jul 01 ·delicado: yeah, I picked up the European reissue of this album recently, and have to agree with you on its power. I first came across Scott on the 'fire, walk with me' soundtrack, and for many years, 'Jimmy Scott' was just that strange voice. I only figured out the gender quite recently.
