Marlena Shaw

Let's Wade In The Water

From 1966 off of the famous Cadet label, Marlena Shaw belts out this classic “Taken’ it to Church” hymn that is sure to get you dancing! Originally published in 1901 by brothers John and Frederick Work in the New Jubilee Songs as Sung by the Fisk Jubilee Singers, it played an important role in the Underground Railroad movement. I consider this the best version I’ve heard of the timely old spiritual, followed by Graham Bond’s rendition. Enjoy!
