Ginger Baker's Air Force: Man of Constant Sorrow
We all know this song from the film O Brother, Where Art Thou? but it was first recorded around a hundred years ago.
This slightly chaotic live version appears on the first Ginger Baker's Air Force LP. The singer is Denny Laine, whom we last saw with the Moody Blues. Later he was to be kidnapped by the McCartneys and forced to sing and play on dross like Mull of Kintyre.
Also playing on the track are this blog's hero Steve Winwood on bass guitar and Leicester's Ric Grech (of Blind Faith and Family) on violin.
