From a hard rain to a slow train.

Helena’s going to come up and sing a song she wrote called “What Are You Doing With Your Heart?”

You all know we’re living in the end of times, near the last of the end of times. And the end of times are perilous times, and the last days perilous times shall be (Ö.). And you’re gonna need something strong to hold on to. The name of this song is “I’m Hanging On To A Solid Rock Made Before The Foundation Of The World.” You’re gonna need something just about that strong.

Playing bass tonight is Tim Drummond, give him a hand. Lead guitar, Fred Tackett. On keyboards, Spooner Oldham. On the other set of keyboards and backing vocals, Terry Young. On drums, Jim Keltner. Mona Lisa Young. In the middle, Regina Havis. On the end, Helena Springs. (before Blessed Be The Name)

Watt Alexander: The Gospel Project.

Note from the original uploader: Some weeks back I seeded a show I thought was 11-07-79 (it was given to me with that label), but which turned out to be 11-06-79. When I discovered this misidentification, I promised to seed an authentic 11-07-79. I have now received an authentic version of 11-07-79 from a trader who was a source for Watt Alexander’s “The Gospel Project”. This trader is somewhat more careful in his use of the term “offmaster” than some others, and did not guarantee that this recording fits that description; thus I have avoided the use of this term here. However,listening to the recording, there is noquestion that it is of entirely comparable quality to the other recordingsJefferson and I have seeded from the Warfield/Warfield run. I do have anotherrecording of 11-07-79 promised to me that is said to be “offmaster”, and if there is any difference in quality I can make it available.
