    Don’t forget the significance of Leadbelly. I think it’s really important.

    I’ve updated the sidebar musical selection in honor of one of America’s greatest living poets. Likely all of you already know the song but you may not have heard this arrangement before. If by some bizarre circumstance you haven’t heard it before, then I envy you the first listen to this marvelous narrative.Report

      I just listened to it. I also listened to Joan Baez singing it. It’s a bit easier to catch all the lyrics listening to her, but it also loses something.

      I’m undecided as to whether I’ve heard it before. I think I did, but I was too young to latch on to it. Maybe I just heard fragments.Report
