Classics, Antiques and Curios:" Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me
Yet."  This classic Gavin Bryars B-side to  "The Sinking of
the titanic" on Eno's first 1976 Obscure label release began in 1970
with the looped prerecorded voice of an old tramp singing solo to which
the instruments of a chamber orchestra were slowly and sympathetically
added, creating a powerfully moving experience for even the
non-believer.  Tonight that recording plus a 1993 reinterpretation
which takes things even further as Bryars layers in the original
ensemble, but then slowly adds full strings, a full orchestra, a chorus
and finally Tom Wiats.
