Earlier tonight I had a very nice 4th of July with Kyle and many close friends, and for some reason I’ve had this song stuck in my head. It’s from Beck’s 1994 album One Foot in the Grave and the song is called He’s A Mighty Good Leader. The song is actually a cover, which Skip James recorded back in 1931 under the title Jesus Is A Mighty Good Leader. I’ve loved this song for quite a while now, but there was something about tonight that reminded me of this track. Maybe it was the beer, maybe it was the fireworks, but I figure it was worth sharing since it’s such a beautiful track. I hop you dig it.
