God Don’t Never Change – a Tribute to Blind Willie Johnson

Described as a “stunning collection of artists and performances,” the Blind Willie Johnson tribute album God Don’t Never Change brings together some of the biggest names in roots, rock and blues music to celebrate the music of the legendary bluesman.

Standout tracks include Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi’s doing “Keep Your Lamp Trimmed And Burning,” Lucinda Williams’ “Nobody’s Fault But Mine,” Tom Waits’ eerie versions of “The Soul Of A Man” and “John The Revelator,” and, perhaps most surprisingly, a stunning version of “Trouble Will Soon Be Over” by Sinéad O’Connor.

Tribute albums are sometimes heavy on names but don’t stand the test of time. This star-studded lineup aligns the soul and spirit of Johnson with some real-deal rock and blues artistry. Check it out.
