: Hi folks: : Forgive me if you've seen this
: elsewhere. I'm trying to find the origin
: of "He Rose from the Dead",
: recorded by Blind Lemon Jefferson c. 1927
: (and covered by Ari ten years ago). I'm
: sure now that Jefferson was not the
: author; Rob Hutten has located a 1929
: hymnal from Georgia that includes the
: song, but with no credits.
: The Fisk Jubilee Singers recorded it on a
: 1955 Folkways album. My questions: : 1) Did
: they record it on a 78? So far I
: haven't found one.
: 2) Who wrote it, and when?
: Any help is much appreciated.
