Note: Bessie Jones on "The Devil Got To Move": That's one of them old time songs from slavery. You can tell from the sound. Nowadays they would have it at a higher pitch and would have it in different ways [ornamentation]. She demonstrates singing a verse in the newer more ornamental style (that modern listeners identify with what became the gospel-style). 'Drive Ol' Satan Away' is introduced."
