another version of this tune that I love is Aaron Neville's on the Neville Bros. album "Yellow Moon". Daniel Lanois produced it, and Brian Eno also worked on the tune. It's chilling. Here's a little slice of that.


Highly recommend the whole album. Excellent record all around.

Appropriate. There are some fantastic (newly released?) Magnum photos of MLK and the civil rights movement on NYTimes.com.
