AF#-DD-AA-AD. Charlie Cline's fiddle is also in altered tuning, with the E string down to D. For more on this tune see "The Music of Bill Monroe", by Neil Rosenberg and Charles Wolfe (University of Illinois; 2007), p93.

Intense, but cool.  The part where Satan drives away in flatbed truck with the jazz band is wonderful.

"The Blood of Jesus" and "Go Down Death," along with their director, Spencer Williams,  have been discussed here previously. In the interest of redundancy, here are links:

Thanks for posting that, I hadn't seen it before either. Despite my unusually short attention span I watched the whole thing and learned a lot. It deepened my respect for Sam as a person and uniquely gifted musician.

Hi all,
I found this performance by John "Short Stuff" Macon of "Rock Road Bad Treatin'" on youtube recently.  It apparently comes from an album he did with Big Joe Williams on Folkways of which I was unaware.  We're somewhat accustomed to a monotonic bass--a monotonic treble is much less common.  I love the ruminative quality of the song.  Here it is:



All best,
Johnm
