Boyd Rivers: You Got to Take Sick and Die (1978)

Very rare footage of one of the last true hills bluesmen, Boyd Rivers. Amazing that Alan Lomax got this on film in 1978.

Rising Appalachia LIVE- Mississippi Song.5.4.2012.

Pretty live version. The album version is more electronic and chillout/trip hop style. Both versions sound great to me. I like how the folk/electronic crossover comes together on this one.
