It is a month away from American Thanksgiving, wherein many are still, essentially, in their own lock-down. Near 50-years ago, here was Mr. BB King celebrating - giving something back to those in a real societal prison at Sing Sing, no matter the crimes or trumped up charges that had committed them.

Before he died, Leonard Cohen recorded an album, singing and recording most of the songs without music, just his voice, and to the beat and tune from his creativity, his imagination.
His son, along with a group of loyal friends, put his last songs to music, this is one of those last songs.
The album is titled “You Want it Darker”

top-tier Los Angeles session players: P. F. Sloan on guitar, Hal Blaine (of Phil Spector's Wrecking Crew) on drums, and Larry Knechtel on bass guitar.
