Five Blind Boys of Alabama, “Send It On Down” (1969)/mp3

This is another track from The Widow’s Might, the wonderful DVD—nearly 700 (!) gospel songs in mp3 format (everything played on Sinner’s Crossroads [one of my all-time favorite radio shows] in 2009)—that’s available as a $75 premium from WFMU-FM.

What I want to do is sing so good that the people who don’t believe in God will have an idea that there is a God . . .
