Product Description

One of the most fascinating releases in 2004. The folky, rootsy blues sound of Ben Harper and his band - combined with the sweet vocals of the Blind Boys. Moving, soulful, passionate. Great!Medium 1

Ben Harper DOES gospel/blues. The result: all killers, no fillers!. Surely the critics must agree. Bens albums have been subject to some rather patchy reviews, some of which are probably worthy, however the relaxed nature of this album shines through. Ben's voice and playing suit the Blind Boys style perfectly, the result is a sheer pleasure. Bens recent albums ( aside from the MARS acoustic set ) have been a little hit and miss of late, this certainly makes up for it. At £8.99 on Amazon, it's a steel.

This album is truly inspirational on as many levels as you choose to open up to. This material springs from Gospel roots and remains grounded in Christian relgious musical heritage. Put off? Don't be: this is where R&B and Rock came from and these guys know it and feel it. This is quintessential Harper and Blind Boys. Tight music, lyrical expression, free spirit and immeasurable style. You'd have to be tone-deaf, too zealously atheistic or just plain dead not to like this album.
Can't comment on ENHANCED. I assume that's video footage, but I don't see evidence of it. Anyway, you watch music at gigs; everywhere else, music is for your ears, heart and soul, so listen.

This is simply a beautiful album. The gospel songs and sounds of the amazing Blind Boys blended seamlessly with the blues guitar of Ben Harper.

I'm not sure what to add to that opening statement. If you think that Gospel music is for bible bashers then you couldn't be more wrong. First off there is a huge variety of sounds in here. The album opens with "Take My Hand", and this sets the tone for the rest of the disc a low drum beat and tinkling piano takes us into a blues/soul/gospel song with Ben Harper singing lead and the Blind Boys supplying sublime backing vocals. The second track "Wicked Man" is much more funky, think of early Jacksons perhaps? Further in, "11th Commandment" is a blues guitar instrumental. "Mother Pray" had tears in my eyes (and will similarly affect anyone who has lost their mother). Often albums can tail off towards the latter tracks, but not here, "There will be a light" is Van Morrison like and nothing wrong with that (I know Van was influenced by Gospel so we have a circular reference but it's the best I can think of). We finish with some slapped tambourines leading us into the upbeat "Church On Time" which will have you clapping and crying "Alleluia" with the best of them!

Perhaps not an album for the Blues nor the Gospel purist, I find this album uplifting and life affirming. Proof, if it were needed that the Devil has no monopoly on fine tunes and music.

Halleluia and click the "Buy Now!" button!

This album is truly magnificent. The Gospel nature of this album will undoubtedly put off some cynics, but then they only have themselves to blame for missing out.
The Blind Boys of Alabama are an absolute institution, who have yet to be recognised by the British public. I saw them live last year at the Cambridge Folk Festival, and they were the stars of the whole weekend. Their voices, although some of them are shot, add incredible depth to the playing of BHIC.
The enhanced section I believe alludes to the extra live tracks, which is the version that I own. The price is worth it for the live tracks themselves. There are live versions of take my hand, there will be a light, and the awe insipiring i shall not walk alone. It really is worth the extra few pence for these gems.
