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.

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.

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.

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.

I didn't know anything about The Blind Boys of Alabama when I bought this album. I was drawn to the title, because I've lived in New Orleans, and I read the list of songs and artists associated with them, and I decided to give the album a chance. The music far exceeded any expectations I had; it's an uplifting, energizing combination of gospel, blues and a little bit of zydeco, too, I think. Not my usual kind of music - I still prefer classical rock - yet, whenever I listen to the album I can't help but feel my spirit rising.

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!
