This is one of Eric Bibb's finest cd's,(he has never made a bad one).
Recorded using the Blumien single-point recording technique at the Opus 3 studio in Sweden,this is a fantastic sound quality CD even when playrd on a normal CD player, played on a SACD player and you are in the studio with Eric,Fantastic........
All acoustic versions of some of Eric's best known songs.
The first 8 tracks are spiritual songs including,'Lonesome Valley','In My Fathers House' and 'Needed Time'.Tracks 9 to 15 are blues songs including,'Braggin' and'Tell Ol' Bill', hence the title "Spirit and the Blues"
Recorded in 1994 this CD sounds fresh and alive,and with it being a SACD hybrid you get a gold CD.
I can't fault it.

I bought the original CD of this recording back in 1995, not too long after its release. I used it as a bench mark when shopping for HI FI speakers due its well recorded sound quality.

The music has been reviewed often enough in the past and I think anyone looking at the SACD edition is more interested in the sound quality.

That was the important question for me. Was the SACD sound worth the effort over the CD. In brief, Yes! the level on red book CD issue from the 1994 is a tad polite. I've been disappointed with SACDs in the past however this SACD version sounds noticeably richer and fuller, with improved dynamics, deeper bass and lots of "air around the voices and instruments.

After listening to the SACD once I played the CD version and it sounded flat an lifeless. Amazing considering how good the I thought the CD sounded beforehand.

I love this album and the SACD is even more lifelike and enjoyable as a result. If you have an SACD player you'd be mad not too.

You don't have to be old to sing great blues... just talented, enthusiastic and committed. Eric Bibb and his wonderful backing band - Needed Time - do full justice to the record's title, capturing all the sadness, joy and stoic enthusiasm that gospel based blues stand for.

The driver behind this wholly satisfying album from this, at the time, still young bluesman is a belief in the power of music to convey emotion... in this case, his conviction in the redemptive power of Jesus. If that puts you off, then you're missing a real treat. You don't have to be a "believer" to enjoy this record you just need to believe that he means what he says because it's his infectious enthusiasm to his cause that makes this album so effective.

Featuring marvellous finger-picking steel guitar and beautifully laid back vocals it's packed full of excellent songs, many of which are based on the group's interpretation of traditional blues/gospel standards. But... what lifts it firmly into the 5 star category are two quite stunning tracks: "Where Shall I Be" - a superb two minute slice of unaccompanied guitar playing - and "Tell Ol' Bill" - one of the most moving songs ever recorded, with its heart-breakingly sad lyrics, wonderful mandolin break and beautiful acoustic guitar playing it's as close as you'll come to the essence of pure blues.

This reflective and joyous album makes you feel good and sad at the same time and... in the end, that's exactly what this music is all about.

Eric Bibb is great, but I cannot help feeling that all his other album's are patchy affairs. He strays too far from the country blues into soul and folky areas. Songwriting or choice of material sometimes lets him down. He is not a bad boy and cannot really convince you with sleaze or sexy stuff. With the love stuff he is an angel though.
But forget all those quibbles. This is the one to get because it all comes right. The choice of songs is great, the arrangements are immaculate and the spirit of the sessions will just pour out of your speakers.
You might even decide to buy a mandolin.
