We need people to send in your favorite version of the classic ballad with a line or two, I'll post a list of the versions that have already been claimed so that we don't have repeat songs. We are looking for all different versions of the songs from any genre. This could be really great.
Luke Jordan has one of the kindest voices that I've heard. In the same vein as Miss. John Hurt or Elizabeth Cotten but with the phrasing and style of Charley Jordan, Luke Jordan recorded a handful of sides in the late 20s. Coming from the Piedmont blues style, Jordan has very country influenced guitar style that's very clean and precise. A hauntingly sad and beautiful track.
