Morning Song – Didn’t It Rain

July 2, 2017

In some alternate universe, Sr. Rosetta Tharpe is better known and more revered than The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and Eric Clapton…combined.

Here she is, nearly 50 years old, rocking and preaching to an oddly assembled crowd at a train station in Manchester, England with her electrified (and electrifying) version of the old Negro spiritual, “Didn’t It Rain”.

Didn’t it rain, children, oh yes….
