Sorrow Come Pass Me Around
« on: April 13, 2013, 08:48:39 AM »
I haven't seen this mentioned yet. A new release from Dust-to-Digital. Sorrow Come Pass Me Around: A Survey of Rural Black Religious Music.

Description: A collection of spiritual and gospel songs performed in informal non-church settings between 1965-1973. Most are guitar-accompanied and performed by active or former blues artists. ?Most records of black religious music contain some form of gospel singing or congregational singing recorded at a church service. This album, though, tries to present a broader range of performance styles and contexts with the hope of showing the important role that religious music plays in the Southern black communities and in the daily lives of individuals.? ? David Evans, from the liner notes
Publication Date: April 2, 2013

This refers to a vinyl version. CD version apparently coming soon. It looks really good. Is this a reissue? Bunker Hill refers to an album on Advent in an older forum post dealing with Rube Lacy.

I just got the reissued vinyl last week (you can consider the original LP to be made of pure unobtainium). I'm very pleased to have it - wonderful listening all around.

This is a wonderful record. Originally issued on LP on Advent in 1975. I believe this has been issued on CD on the P-Vine label. It would be great if Dust-to-Digital included some bonus tracks (if there are any). I've also heard rumor they may issue a box set of David Evans' blues field recordings.

A boxed set of David Evans' recordings would be fantastic.

As for bonus tracks on Sorrow Come Pass Me Around, I suspect there wouldn't be any. The vinyl releases seem to be the main releases these days for several of these labels, with CDs being added as a concession to those of us who struggle to get their turntables repaired or buy new ones.  :P I've actually bought vinyl with no means of playing it at the moment. Need a new turntable. The wonderful Tompkins Square set Work Hard, Play Hard, Pray Hard was clearly conceived as an LP set, with the shortened tracklist being the most obvious clue. Not complaining, just observing. But LPs unfortunately do limit the concept of bonus tracks, since adding them becomes a much bigger deal.

As owner of Advent Records I can tell you that this appears to be a straight reissue of the album I put out in 1977. Of course Dave Evans recorded lots more by these artists but the rights all his field recordings are owned by Steve Lavere's company Mimosa. If Dust-To-Digital are able to deal with him and get some of those field recordings out it would be a great service to all blues lovers. It would probably take half a dozen box sets to really do justice to Dave's recordings.
