Q: Where can I get a download of Abraham's Disciples?
A: I don't have a studio recording of that yet. If you just want the song, I've got a few versions posted for patrons at http://patronism.com/johnpointer On that site, if you like what I'm doing, you can chip in whatever's right for you, so that I can keep doing it. There are 21 albums up there already, and more coming, but it's less, "buy my songs" and more "help me eat, and I'll feed you music." Of course, obscurity is a bigger problem for musicians than poverty, so if you really want the song and you don't feel like chipping in over there, I'm sure I can find a version to simply share with you.
