Biography

As a teenager, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon dreamed of working with his heroes, except his weren’t the typical heroes for a kid growing up in the Midwest during the 1990s. When his friends were getting into punk and hip-hop, the seventeen-year-old Vernon was obsessed with gospel music. As teenagers, he and his best friend—and future band mate—Phil Cook steeped themselves in ... Read more in Amazon's Blind Boys of Alabama Store

Tell me 5 years ago that I'd get into these guys and I'd have laughed it away. But I tell you....it's infectious; absolutely as good as their Grammy-winning Spirit of the Century from 2001. Songs from Stevie Wonder, Aretha, and trad gospel, done in their own unique way. Very highly recommended.

I am not a religious man (far from it) and am no follower of gospel music but having come across the blid boys of alabamas Spirit of the Century album I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one.
THere is no doubt that this is another fine album full of wonderful vocals. As with Spirit of the century the blind boys have been teamed up with another great set of backing musicians, although I must admit i do miss Danny Thompsons excellent bass playing which was an outstanding feature of the previous album.
There is a good range of songs on this album which show up the beauty of the singing and playing.
Even if like me you would never normall consider a gospel album this is well worth buying and if you have never heard spirit of the century you MUST get that album tha treally is essential listening

and it certainly holds true for this people. They really have gone "back to basics" with their music and therefore the final product is just amazing.
Don't expect any fancy vocals or over-virtuous performances, this is about soul and a simple message, which the blind boys deliver excellently.
