It was Mahalia Jackson's seminal version of "Trouble Of The World" we were channelling when recording this great funereal piece. Never having performed a spiritual before we hardly knew ourselves listening to the playback.

Elisa learned the song only on the session, capturing it in a couple of takes, all done in less than an hour. The wonderful singer that she is, I had come to expect little else.
