Take Me to the Water: Immersion Baptism in Vintage Music and Photography 1890-1950


Dust-To-Digital will be releasing Take Me to the Water: Immersion Baptism in Vintage Music and Photography 1890-1950 featuring photographs I collected over a ten year period along with a CD of truly amazing and historic early songs and sermons from prominent collections compiled by Steven Lance Ledbetter. Essays by Jim Linderman, Luc Sante and comprehensive notes by Ledbetter. The original photographs have been donated to the International Center of Photography in New York. Dust-To-Digital is an award winning reissue label and much, much more. I am proud and honored to be involved with them on this project. There will be additional information about this release as it progresses. Please take the time to read their January 2009 newsletter, and make sure to note their outstanding catalog of releases, current, past and forthcoming.

  1. Jim, I definitely want to get this, and I would like you to sign it for me. Your baptism photos are the greatest—an important archive.

  2. Thanks much! It was a good project and hobby for a long, long time, and I am happy that Dust-To-Digital is publishing the collection. It will be 100 pages with an extraordinary group of "matching" gospel and sermon recordings from the period. A major contribution, hopefully, and I am very proud.
