Joan Baez teams with Peter (PDQ Bach) Schickele for a moving song based on a text by e.e. cummings. Inuit Eskimo women sing into each other's throats: the results are probably not what you'd expect.

Sometime in the eighties you played a recording - it sounded almost like a drunk on the street singing - of a song with a line like "Jesus' love will never save me." That's probably not the exact line but the recording haunts me. Is it in the archives?

Thanks.
