Hi Tony,
I guess we start posting stuff to hopefully start the revival. I found this appreciation of Clarence on Rubber City Review. It has some terrific sound clips to illustrate the origins of Clarence's style. I was happy they included Joseph Spence, a Bahamian guitarist with a very weird sense of rhythm. Ry Cooder and David Lindley were also into his music at that time. You can really hear how Clarence was influenced by his meandering rhythm and sense of time, something Clarence would make a signature part of his style. (I also like their statement that what Clarence did was to give a new voice to both the acoustic and electric (string bender) guitar. Enjoy.

Didn't Jospeh Spence record one of the first versions of "Glory, Glory"?

Yes, he recorded Glory, Glory in 1964. Here's his wild and crazy version of "Yellow Bird."
