Rosetta's Rain

This might be the strangest and best Wednesday clip yet. Watch it while you can, because I think another version was taken off YouTube recently. It's Sister Rosetta Tharpe singing "Didn't It Rain" at a Manchester train station in 1964. Her entrance is hysterically odd, but when she puts that guitar on, you can see she isn't fooling. Enjoy:
