God Don't Never Change: The Songs of Blind Willie Johnson (Alligator Records) earned Grammy Award nominations for Best Roots Gospel Album and Best American Roots Performance for Blind Boys of Alabama recording of Mother's Children Have a Hard Time. The compilation was produced by Jeffrey Gaskill of Burning Rose Productions. The package features extensive historical liner notes by author Michael Corcoran.

Gaskill first heard Johnson's haunting, knife-like slide guitar and moaning gospel-blues in 2003, then made two investigative trips to Texas to learn more. There wasn't much: Michael Corcoran's excellent historical liner essay here admits that what we don't know about Johnson "could sink the Titanic. God Don't Never Change is not necessarily about unique interpretations of Johnson's work, but his influence on these specific artists. Of Waits' two appearances, his reading of "The Soul of Man" is most effective, backed by Kathleen Brennan and son Casey.

God Don't Never Change: . .has been added to your Cart. Initially I was surprised to learn that This Blind Willie Johnson tribute album was brought into existence by crowd-sourcing through kickstarter. And, a second later it made perfect sense. Blues in general, in particular gospel blues, is not mainstream enough to readily find financing for a project like this in the recording industry. If you hate tribute albums by various artists this CD will change your mind. The music is infectious, the musicians passionate, and the recording first rate.

God Don’t Never Change is an 11-song ode to the great blues howler and gospel progenitor Blind Willie Johnson, including contributions from Tom Waits, Lucinda Williams, and more. God Don’t Never Change ends with the impression that there’s work to be done, interpretations yet left to hear. Johnson’s songs were often elliptical and vague; see, his largely instrumental masterpiece, "Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground. But God Don’t Never Change never really opens itself up beyond obvious Americana. What does rap in 2016 have to say about Blind Willie Johnson? Or metal? Or a sample-driven producer?

God Don’t Never Change honors Johnson with 11 hand-clapping, soul-shaking renditions of his original songs. A diverse ensemble brings together a variety of styles and sounds; but from start to finish, the album is held together by the gritty musicality, wild energy, and spiritual urgency that made Blind Willie Johnson’s music so unique. Tom Waits - whose voice has been described by critic Daniel Durchholz as being soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car - kicks things off with The Soul of a Man.

Comments:

Debeme
I heard the Tom Waits last night, apart from the phoney voice, which he has made a career of, what's with the backing singers, are they from a can? This LP gives the impression of a bad movie, and you don't pay money or time to watch a bad movie -- you know how it is going to run. I know Blind Wille put on a bass voice to sing his songs but Waits only has ever put on the dog -- trying to impress the naive.
