"See That My Grave Is Kept Clean"
Don’t worry folks—no hidden messages here!—just a quick announcement that yours truly has posted about Blind Lemon Jefferson & the song “See That My Grave Is Kept Clean” over at Citizen K’s Just a Song blog. Please check that blog out when you have a chance—there are some excellent contributors covering a wide array of music. If you’re interested in my latest contribution, you can read it here. There are also some accompanying vidclips (as is always the case on Just a Song), & you’ll get to hear three very different versions: Jefferson’s harrowing blues, Bob Dylan’s angry young man/punk folkie; & Mavis Staples’ gospel rendition.
Stay tuned here, too, because tomorrow we’ll go Down on the Farm for more music!
