Gillian Welch & David Rawlings - "Time (The Revelator)"
“Time (The Revelator)” is my favorite Gillian Welch & David Rawlings song, and one of the most haunting songs I’ve heard. It's the perfect empty house, dark night song, but it has plenty of competition from other Welch & Rawlings songs . . . they’ve found a difficult way into simplicity that’s simply magnificent.
Can I get a witness?
I’m still reading Littlefoot, by Charles Wright. I’m taking my time, as it’s a wonderful book. He’s weaving all his favorite moves into one sprawling, glorious mess. If you’ve ever liked his work, you’ll be happy to read it.
It’s also a great read with Welch and Rawlings playing . . .
