Dark Was the Night by Blind Willie Johnson is one of Ry Cooder's favorites. He has often said he warms up half an hour just to loosen up enough to play the song. Blind Willie Johnson's composition, Dark Was The Night--Cold Was The Ground, was included on a golden record that was sent in the Voyager space probe. The hymn from which Blind Willie Johnson's derived this song comes from the story about Christ...his suffering, pain & crucifixion.

This is a masterpiece for any slide blue's enthusiast. Enjoy!
