2 Motherless Children: More Interpretations of the Great Negro Spiritual

HjmVjXFmQ6zK9BdFLYhmwDn3Z6urvXntZaWcG7Qb

The response to the recent post on the Negro Spiritual Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child, has been unexpectedly strong and positive. Readers have contacted WD saying how much the spiritual has meant to them. For some it is their ‘favorite song’. Others said they listened to the song whenever they moved into a new apartment or house.  Several people pointed The Washerman’s Dog to other brilliant renditions of the hymn, for which we are very grateful.

And so as to be selfish WD has put together a second volume of interpretations of this truly inspirational song.

01 Motherless Child_It’s Up To You [Sara Tidwell]

    Good golly, Dog! You set the bar with the Stagger Lee compendium, and now absolutely raised it through the roof with Motherless Children! Thank you for continuing to so thoughtfully share great music.
