Well this could be the LAST TIME

Maybe the last time

comment by Hendrik van Leeuwen in my Flickr photo stream about the three videos:
“I enjoyed the different versions. Never knew the song had such a tragic origin.
I also smiled to see how ‘civil’ the crowd behaves at the Stones performance.

frizztext reply: yes, the second video presents a thought-provoking slide show of slavery historical documents – drawings, wallpapers etc. – The spiritual started about 1885 as a protest vs. slavery. The Rolling Stones version makes the content flat – the lyrics are only related to a (bad and sad) love story …
listen to:
1
Last Time – Blind Boys of Alabama

2
This may be the last time – The Staple Singers (with history of slavery slide show)

3
version by the Rolling Stones (the famous guitar riff played by Brian Jones)
