Leadbelly pays tribute to the spirituals that moved him, ('Swing ì Low Sweet Chariot,' 'Amazing Grace,' 'Old Time Religion') as well ì as blues songs like 'T.B. Blues,' derived from Victoria Spivey's ì influential 1926 recording. In a couple of fascinating spoken ì sections, he talks with Alan Lomax about Christmas and about ì square dances (which he called 'sukey jumps').
