The Believer
John Coltrane Lyrics


Never mind all the things you heard about me
You're never gonna understand it
Every time that I've given you the truth
It's never made a bit of difference

Disappointment takes you
Then the doubt, it breaks you
It's enough to make you cry

Always looking for a sign
Miracles won't change your mind
Tell me how much evidence you need
Turning truth into a lie
Hardened heart and blinded eye
All you need to do is just believe

Never mind what you think that you had seen
It all can change in just a moment
Here before you is all the proof you need
Why can't you ever just believe it?

THANK YOU

Delbert Grady

I wonder why this was recorded in '57and '58, yet it wasn't actually released until '64...🤔

because Coltrane became a big name in 60s

@tourist54 Yeah, some pretty sleazy business practices back then re: talent.

Delbert,that's what I found on Wikipedia to answer your question :

The Believer is a jazz album credited to John Coltrane released in 1964 on Prestige Records, catalogue 7292. It was recorded at the studio of Rudy Van Gelder in Hackensack, New Jersey in 1957 and 1958.[1]

As Coltrane's fame grew during the 1960s, long after he had stopped recording for the label, Prestige assembled varied recordings and reissued them as new albums in Coltrane's name. The original album consists of three previously unissued tracks with Coltrane as a leader ("The Believer", "Nakatini Serenade" and "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful?") from two separate recording sessions in 1958.
