VIDEO: Sister Rosetta Tharpe – “Didn’t It Rain”

I’m not a gospel aficionado. I’ve heard The Staple Singers and a few of their solo albums, Numero’s Downriver Revival comp and a few other odd tracks. So, perhaps there is a ton of tracks floating around that hit this spot: just ambiguous enough with the lyrics to prevent me from feeling like I’m being preached to and musically interesting enough to make me enjoy the parts where I am. As minimumrockandroll (who brought this one to my attention) put it: “Would be more religious if this happened more.”
