Editor's note: I bought this for the novelty of a polio victim's testimony but was won over by the melancholy refrains of fatalism wrought by Mr. Robertson. He sings both mournfully and lovingly towards death for both salvation and release from his broken body. He wasn't the best singer but he was five times as earnest as Bob Dylan or The Beatles. His sometimes background singers, The Gospel Echoes, have rather lovely voices as well. An A+ DIY effort.

He died in 1985 and is buried at Providence Cemetery in Sevierville, Tennessee. Which is a 40 minute drive from Knoxville, my second hometown via my Clone child. Next time I'm down there I'll convince her to take a trip with her crazy father in exchange for other vessel of poop slime (yes, it's an actual best-selling product that comes with a cute poop animal toy).
