Subject: RE: AMEN
Spaw, this is one that I was searching for years, and even Joe Offer could not find: "Love Song" , from the movie "Sanders of the river" (details of the film in ). Was recorded by Paul Robeson in 1935 and I DO HAVE the re-processed CD ! However I don't understand some parts of the lyrics, and the only time I sung it in public, I MUMBLED AND INVENTED (shame on me). Fortunately there were no English language experts in the audience, except one who suspiciously got up and left. The song is extremely beautiful and I would love to obtain that obscure lyrics.
