Just a quickie to let you know about this rather fantastic thing on Dust To Digital . It's called 'Take Me To The Water: Immersion Baptism In Vintage Music' and it sort of does what it says on the tin. This package is both a treat for the eyes and ears as it's simultaneously a book and a CD based on the tradition of immersion and submersion baptism which went on in America from the 1890's to 1950 (though I'm sure it still goes on today). The book is gorgeous.... 75 sepia photos packed full of folks immersed in water (dressed in their best as a rule) on what is largely one of the happiest days in their lives. It's some moving shit I can say... as is the 25 track CD which features largely religious blues tracks and sermons from folks like Washington Phillips, Dock Walsh, The Carter Family (quite a few of these appeared on some of the Harry Smith comps on Revenant). It's a stunning looking thing and a total wet dream for anyone into American folk music history. Dust To Digital rules......
