Tom Waits delivers his take on Blind Willie Johnson’s John The Revelator in another cut from all-star tribute album God Don’t Never Change.
Waits has already been heard performing The Soul Of A Man, the opening track to the record which also features Lucinda Williams, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, the Blind Boys Of Alamaba and others.
