BlindWillieJohnsonNetherlands-based blues guitarist and producer Jan Mittendorp produces remixes of blues tracks, under the sub-genre of “blues-beat”. This latest mix is definitely one you should hear. Taken from a Blind Willie Johnson recording, here a remix of “Jesus Make Up My Dying Bed”.

Hanging on the Cross

Hanging there in misery
Oh well
Hanging there in misery
Go make up my
