In hour 1, we lay upon you several soulful and, and in some cases, slightly strange covers from Della Reese, Richie Havens, and Louis Armstrong, drop in on a New Orleans jazz funeral, and stretch out with Pharoah Sanders. In hour 2, we hear a rollicking version of Amazing Grace courtesy of Sam Cooke & the Soul Stirrers, tour the world with stops in Guinea Conakry, Nigeria, Brazil, and Trinidad, and hear a set hosted by late great WERU dj Charlie Oldham.
