Blind Willie Johnson - Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground / It's Nobody's Fault But Mine
Blind Willie Johnson was the greatest and most popular recorded guitar evangelist who influenced generations of musicians. His unique, intense, emotional and haunting gruff voice - coupled with some of the finest slide-guitar of any of his peers — firmly established Johnson’s status as one of the premier gospel-blues artists of all time. Between 1927 and 1930, Johnson recorded 30 powerful and timeless landmark songs for Columbia Records in five sessions in Dallas, New Orleans, and Atlanta, generating strong sales and national fame.On December 3, 1927, in a temporary studio in the Deep Ellum district of Dallas Johnson recorded six groundbreaking songs, including the iconic slide guitar classic, Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground. Johnson’s haunting response to Christ’s crucifixion remains one of the masterpieces of American music. Ry Cooder described it as “the most soulful, transcendent piece in all American Music.” Jack White called it “the greatest example of slide guitar ever recorded.”
For RSD Black Friday 2019 Traffic Entertainment presents two of Johnson’s most iconic sides as a 78 RPM microgroove 10” record housed in a glorious re-productionof the Columbia sleeve wrapped in a full colour OBI with detailed liner notes.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
