Deep River: Paul Robeson or William Warfield?

Facebook friend Aaron noted that "Deep River is best with Paul Robeson."

What about William Warfield?" I wondered.

I will leave it to my readership to decide, thanks to the miracle of modern youtube and an old wind-up record player. Cast your votes in the comment box.

Paul Robeson from the 1936 version of Showboat


William Warfield, probably around 1951,
the year MGM's Showboat was released.
