Every year, in preparation for Easter, Full-Time Blues Radio walks in the light of the LORD by playing the Spiritual Side of the Blues. In 2016, inspired by the new album God Don’t Never Change: The Songs Of Blind Willie Johnson, Johnny Full-Time enjoyed building a playlist of songs covering Willie. There are several songs off this new Alligator Records release, but there are several other songs from individual artist albums.

Another one of the albums that has several songs featured is a 2011 release titled If I Had My Way – A Cigar Box Guitar Tribute To Blind Willie Johnson. This was a special project put together by cigar box guitar guru Shane Speal, and offered as a FREE download on his website. Click Here to Visit ShaneSpeal.com and Download the Album!
