about

"For most of his life, collector Jim Linderman has searched high and low for authentic things—unique and special objects that define the artistic culture of the American experience. From folk art to popular culture, from pulp fiction to Delta Blues— Jim is a walking authority on so many things American they are too numerous to mention. One thing is certain— his collecting interests are for things that have fallen through the cracks, those things lost and forgotten—the box of material under the table at the flea market booth. If it wasn’t for dedicated collectors like Jim Linderman— so many important objects about our culture would have surely been lost to time and indifference.

Take Me to the Water: Immersion Baptism in Vintage Music and Photography 1890-1950 is Linderman’s first book. The 96-page hardcover book (8.75 x 6 inches) has 75 sepia photograph reproductions from 1890-1950 and is accompanied by a CD of rare gospel and folk recordings from original 78-RPM records (1924-1940). It features recordings of artists like Washington Phillips, Carter Family, Tennessee Mountaineers, and lesser known and rare groups like the Belmont Silvertone Jubilee Singers, a vocal quartet in 1939. Included as well are rare vocal recordings of sermons and preaching which highlight the fervor leading up to the moment of cleansing one’s soul in immersion baptism." — John Foster, Accidental Mysteries

Track Name: Baptize Me
I believe that a man and woman who has been borned again should be baptized. It is as much natural as it is for a little duck to desire water.

Take me to the water
Take me to the water
Take me to the water
Baptize me.
Track Name: John the Baptist (Take 2)
Jesus came from Nazarene unto Galilee
To be baptized of John in Jordan
And John said unto Him, Come and talk to me

I need to be baptized of Thee
And Jesus said unto John, Suffer it to be so for
Thus it becomes us to fill all righteousness.

And John done saw that number
Way in the middle of the air
Cryin; how long, how long, how long,
My Lord, oh how long.

After Jesus was baptized of John
Straightaway out of the waters
Looked and saw heavens open
And the spirit of God came down
And lit a bow on Him, and Jesus was
Carried up into the mountain...
Track Name: On My Way to Canaan's Land
Oh, be baptized in Jesus' name
Oh, be baptized in Jesus' name
Oh, be baptized in Jesus' name
I'm on my way, praise God, I'm on my way.
Track Name: I'll Be Washed
I'll meet you in that city of the new Jerusalem
I've been washed in the blood of the lamb
