Friday Jukebox II: Gospel Time Edition

The preceding Laura Love post made me think of one this song, "Blind Bartemus", a gospel tune she covers in her disc "Octoroon". Here's the audio at - worth a listen.But I couldn't find a video for the Love cover. While searching, though, I came across this, a wonderful recording by the Harps of Melody, a Memphis gospel group that sang across the south during the Fifties and Sixties. A dipper of fresh, clear water from the dark and mighty river that flows out of the wellsprings of Africa. Lovely.
