Song of the Day XVI: John the Revelator

I've been slowly watching Sons of Anarchy on Netflix, and after about 6 weeks, I finally got to the season finale of season 1. When I got to the end of the episode, I heard a song and couldn't concentrate on what was happening in the show, because I recognized that song and couldn't place it. Then I remembered. It's a new version of a song I used to hear playing a lot in my house as a kid, "John the Revelator." The song is a classic blues song dating to the 30s, but the version I knew as a kid was by Son House. And it is awesome. Here he is doing it live. Enjoy.
