Sister Rosetta Tharpe: When I First Sought the Lord

It's high time we heard more from the wonderful Sister Rosetta Tharpe.

We've seen her singing Didn't It Rain? on the platform of Wilbraham Road station in suburban Manchester in 1964. Here she is more than a decade before singing, playing the guitar and reminding us that black American religious music was part of the mix that produced rock.

I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. (Psalms 34:4)
