The version of this song that I heard the most was that by Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee. I like this and of Curtis.

Jeff Beck on guitar is what made Rod's version special.

surprised there needs to be a discussion here of being open to difference in music, faith, and the like.  Great music is great music no matter the source of inspiration, i.e. Moslem, Jewish (my birth tradition), Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Pagan, or Atheist, etc.

I think the Chambers Brothers did a very good version. If I remember correctly . . . or at all.

Art is about so many different things; after all, art is a reflection of humanity.  Hopefully, we all have sources of inspiration; in this case, the Blind Boys have been inspired by their religious faith to make delightful music, and depending on my mood, my needs, and my setting, their music can be inspiring to me.  Does that mean their inspirational font is mine too?  Definitely not, but I can still be hugely impressed with their work.  Yours is a very slippery slope:  hidden down it lies things like Beck's work, the Rev. Al Green's music, Fateh Ali Khan's music, Mozart's Requiem, much of Bach's work, the entirety of Renaissance ecclesiastical architecture, and Michelangelo's ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.  Bottom line: good is good, and great is great.  Thanks for the play RP!

I agree about that subsonic bass voice. My subwoofer purrs to it.

Rod the mod lived in Muswell Hill, north London. He used to play for Highgate Redwing football club. I played for the Muswell Hillbillies. He was quite handy, but was only fit enough for about 20 minutes. I remember one time him turning up in a Rolls Royce to play. At the pub, after the game, half the guys followed him into the loo, asking to see what was keeping Britt Ekland happy!

Coincidentally, the Kinks came from Muswell Hill. Ray Davies' sister was working at the local furniture shop when I lived there. She was very happy to tell anyone who listened that the single 'Come dancing' had been written for her. Sweet.

I thought ol' Roderick was from North London.  "Glasgow Gravedigger" does have a better ring to it, though, and this version of the song is better.

Great singing, but that intro guitar going back in forth in the headphones made me dizzy.

Seems like an unnecessary gimmick when they have such awesome vocals.

Whole album is amazing. The power and grace of these guys comes through—-some of the original five are gone, but they spent their lives together making music.
