This track I want to share was recorded on the first guitar I made for sale in 1975 after completing my apprenticeship. I was lucky to have it find a home with Woody Harris, who began using it in his recordings. “Great Dreams From Heaven” is his one solo cut on an acoustic album of duets of spirituals recorded with Michael Bloomfield in 1979 on Kicking Mule Records. It’s still available as part of the cd “If You Love these Blues, Play ‘Em As You Please”. Woody has worked as an editor for the music publisher Bärenreiter in Germany for most of his career, still has the guitar, and has started to play and compose again.
