    ths duets Iris did on John Prine's "In spite of ourselves" album were always my favorites.

    Love this. And love Iris' too. Do yourself a favor (ignore the silly dancing graphics) and listen to The Shaw Singers "Goin' Home to Jesus" on YouTube.

  3. Those John Prine duets are just ridiculously great.

  4. I'm guessing the Coen Bros. first heard that song in "Night Of The Hunter" Robert Mitchum sings the song several times in the film, once with Lillian Gish. That version is on one of the THE OXFORD AMERICAN southern music compilations.

  6. That's just wonderful. I've gotta see the whole movie. God, it looks great. Thanks, Uncle L!

  7. I've been a fan of Iris for a long time and the Blind Boys too. Found you through my friend Brohammas...
