Here we go with another Replay Thursday. This week, last year I wrote and recorded and released “Pray to Your Lord.” It was a blues tune based on the song “Step It Up and Go” as performed by Blind Boy Fuller. I also put it on my album “Andrew Francis,” that came out in August. That album version is very closely similar to the original recording. Listen to the original here.
So this new recording is a lot different. It’s not in any way a blues tune anymore. And I rearranged most all of the words.
Well, wait. I just listened to it again. It’s still a blues tune. It’s just not a historical country blues tune. Doesn’t have that easy lazy flow to it. Sounds more like a song that I’d write out of the blue rather than when I steal the melody from some other song.
