“Although the Oracle may have left us—may she rest in peace—the havens are holdin’ strong. Just like they did all durin’ those four years after Lady Sylva passed away, and before Lady Lunafreya took up the reins. And just in case, we’ve got hunters patrollin’ the havens and makin’ sure they’re safe, so don’t you worry.“

Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground
Blind Willie Johnson
Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground

In 2003, John Clarke in The Times wrote that “Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground” was “the most intense and startling blues record ever made”. Francis Davis, author of The History of the Blues concurs, writing “In terms of its intensity alone—its spiritual ache—there is nothing else from the period to compare to Johnson’s ‘Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground’, on which his guitar takes the part of a preacher and his wordless voice the part of a rapt congregation.”
