(one line of the lyric) Ive found nobody can tell me ,just what is the soul of a man .... This was one of many wonderful recordings given a highlighted segment in the Scorcese/ PBS series about the history of Jazz (mostly American Jazz, but the series included some non American performers as well...) NOTE: the still image of a man, a guitar and a woman at a corner of a brick building is probably NOT a photo of the person singing this recording Blind Willie Johnson
