Ol' Man River

Although having heard and loved Ol' Man River, a Jerome Kern song from "Show Boat" as sung by Paul Robeson since a child in the 1940's, it was not finally until late 2005 that, with the encouragement of Oliver Rosteck, I started singing it. Great stuff indeed, I now sing it both straight with Oliver on piano and as a belter on the streets as a folk singer, the first time being at Sail 2005 in Bremerhaven.
