You'll also find a single recorded in 1988 that has a song not on the album. Mr. Barnes also makes a memorable appearence in the landmark 1990 documentary Deep Blues. Some will be interested to know that T-Model Ford appears on the albums track #4.
"You just think of somethin' and put it in there.
I'm a bad man. It'll be true."
"I'm going to live as long as I can and die when I can't help it."
"A lot of times, I look over the crowd and if it look like I just touch somebody...I stay on it awhile. Sometimes I get touched by it myself."
