Current economic times are tough and may seem familiar to those who experienced them before. These images are gritty and real. Sometimes history repeats itself, but hopefully the worst is behind us. Although "Hard Times Come Again No More" sounds as if it were written during the Great Depression, it was actually written in 1854 by Stephen C. Foster, America's pioneer songwriter. Mavis Staples, one of the greatest living gospel and R&B singers, recorded the song as part of the CD "Beautiful Dreamer - The Songs of Stephen Foster" a tribute album released on the Emergent Music label in 2004. Included are many of his famous and some lesser known songs recorded with contemporary interpretations and arrangements. I do not own the right to the song, audio, or images contained in this video.
