NEWS (15th April 2008):

There was a news story about a mistake with the song credit for Lord Help The Poor & Needy.

“We fixed the error within a week of being made aware of it, and before any royalties were due. The Matador production head compiled the songwriting and publishing credits on behalf of Chan, and she had absolutely nothing to do with the incorrect credit. We are longtime fans of Jessie Mae Hemphill– hence her being mentioned in the credit for a song we believed was public domain– and are in fact thrilled that her estate will receive royalties for Chan’s interpretation of this song. The SF Weekly article, unfortunately, contains both misleading and inaccurate information that we hope will be retracted.”

It’s unfortunate that most of the originators of blues music died in poverty because of situations similar to this.”
