Dark Was The Night (Blind Willie Johnson) This recording of the song (December 3, 1927) is from the album Roll And Tumble Blues - The Essential Recordings of Slide Guitar Blues tabbed by Kay-Uwe Graw on the 17th of May 1999 "Dark Was the Night" is an otherworldly performance of gorgeously spun slide lines and Johnson's wordless moaning, aimed straight at the heart. .cc-common-mini-dp
