Blind Boys of Alabama with Jamey Johnson on their new album Take The High Road

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

Editorial Reviews

The Blind Boys of Alabama explore the sounds of the birthplace of jazz and R&B on this studio album: Down In New Orleans. One of the longest-running groups in the world since the 1930s, the Blind Boys came back stronger than ever at the turn of the 21st century after giving a series of rock numbers a gospel makeover. This rousing, optimistic and spiritually-driven record features high-profile New Orleans guest artists Allen Toussaint, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band and The Hot 8 Brass Band, as well as session musicians from New Orleans. 12 tracks. Time Life Records. 2008.

5.0 out of 5 stars 70 Years of Joy March 6, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Formed 70 years ago with only Jimmy Carter remaining from the original group, these guys continue to provide joyfull uplifting music. This Soul/Gospel/Jazz influenced collection is helped along by being recorded in The Big Easy with assistance from Allen Toussaint,Hot 8 Brass Band ,the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and a hot rhythm section.
Any one who enjoys good music will enjoy this recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars Down In New Orleans with The Blind Boys of Alabama January 30, 2008
Format:Audio CD
With some amazing New Orleans musicians (even Allen Toussaint!) the Blind Boys of Alabama create one of their BEST albums yet. My favorite song on the album is "How I Got Over", the soulful vocals and bluesy music feels like a sunday morning gospel and blues concert. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best work yet! February 5, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This HAS to be The Blind Boys of Alabama's best work yet! The album is full of amazing talent, including the Hot 8 Brass Band, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band and even Allen Toussaint. My favorite song is "Free At Last," which I just saw them do on Conan O'Brien last week. If you're looking for a Blind Boys' record to buy this is the one - you won't be disappointed, I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A record as good as its cover May 1, 2008
By JRadz
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Had to give a shoutout to the great cover art, which looks like a weathered sign, and matches the rugged red clay harmonies on the record. Backed by the best musicians you'll hear anywhere (as a keyboard player, I would sell my soul to the devil for Allen Toussaint's skills), the Blind Boys deliver a powerful gospel record. I had initially feared that the record would consist of overly-familiar songs and arrangements, but everything here sounds fresh, even "Down by the Riverside." Their version of Toussaint's "Make a better world" is a highlight.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOTTA GET IT! June 19, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Being from South Louisiana and spending a LOT of time in New Orleans, there is no way to avoid that New Orleans sound becoming a part of you. I've longed for some music that would catch the upbeat, unmistakeable sound of this area...while still being something I can listen to and sing along with as a Christian. This is perfect! It is so wonderful to dance and sing aloud to the Lord... all the while feeling so at home with those familiar sounds. KUDOS to the Blind Boys...they did it again!
