Why Music Matters - "Blind" Willie Johnson

"Blind" Willie Johnson (1897 – 1945) was a gospel blues singer and guitarist. Several of Blind Willie Johnson's songs have been interpreted by other musicians, including "Jesus Make Up My Dying Bed", "It's Nobody's Fault but Mine", "Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground", "John the Revelator", "You'll Need Somebody on Your Bond", and "Soul of a Man"."Dark Was the Night" was also included on the Voyager Golden Record, copies of which were mounted on both of the Voyager Project unmanned space probes. Voyager 1 has left the solar system and entered interstellar space, which Voyager 2 is expected to do around 2016 -- from Wikipedia
