I really enjoy listening to this album. The vocal arrangements are top notch. The addition of African drums and electric bass to "Wade in the Water" and "Didn't My Lord Deliver Daniel" is inspiring. The contemporary gospel sounds of "You May Run On" and "Rocka My Soul" end the album on an energetic, positive note. Where this album really shines is in its honest and brilliant acapella arrangements. The only bad points are 1)that the fun ends to soon, and 2) the excrutiatingly long (but informative) interview with Judith Jamison at the end.

I was very pleased and excited about this work. After seeing the dance company perform "Revelations", I found it powerful and cathardic. The music is now apart of my collection and I shall include it in the art of pedadogy. This work is very important to understanding the history of the African American progression in America with Negro Spirituals being parallel. Not enough can be said about this work.

Ok. so they're spirituals. It's religious music. But I garauntee you'll be moving to the beat before you get "Wash My Soul". When you get to that song, you can't help but be up and moving. Compiled by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theare for their ballet "Revelations", this combines the best presentations of the music. And if you think the music is great, go see Alvin Ailey.

I SOARED when I heard this CD. The CD, "Revelations," by Alvin Ailey is one of the most inspiring, beautiful, soulful and moving CDs I've listened to in a long time. I heard one of the numbers on "So You Think You Can Dance," as dancers moved brilliantly over the stage in a choreographed number. I went online to search for it. Thankfully, the TV show listed its songs online and I was able to find it. You cannot sit still if you listen to this CD. Some of the songs are slower-paced and sorrowful -others are upbeat, soaring, roaring, fast and energetic. It will make you want to get up and dance, exercise - MOVE. (It feels like dancing to the speed of light.) It is a pure joy and fills the heart with the most wonderful feelings. The songs remind me of a mixture of African, Gospel, World Music - all of it. I would highly recommend this CD to anyone who loves inspiring and motivating music. DP

This is a new version of the soundtrack to one of the single greatest dance pieces ever created. Some years ago (the 1970s) there was a vinyl version, which in many ways was much better. Some of the arrangements have been modified for this version and seem less exciting-- especially noticeable on the end of "Sinner Man." It's still a great soundtrack, and worth having. And, sadly, it's the only currently available electronic souvenir of the piece. There have been two videos that included the dance itself, but those are no longer in print. I cannot understand why the Ailey company and some video distributor somewhere don't see the need to be sure this masterpiece is always available for viewing.

So glad I finally made this purchase, only regret is not doing it sooner! The music on this album is really wonderful. Anyone that enjoys gospel music at all will enjoy this CD. And while you don't need to have seen the choreography that this CD is a soundtrack for (though you REALLY should try and see it, it's breathtaking!) if you have seen Revelations performed by the Alvin Ailey Company this album is even better. Every single song not only got my toe tapping but each song immediately brought back each piece of the performance it accompanies. It's far and away my favorite piece of choreography I've ever seen and this music is a lovely reminder and a joy to listen too in it's own right.

The CD is AWESOME! The sound is beautiful. The "noise" is joyful! I listen to it over, and over. No cheap, cheesy recordings. At the end, former Artistic Director Judith Jamison gives an overview of what the story contains. If you ever get the opportunity to see the Company perform it will be well worth your time. This is the music for the part of the program referred to as "Revelations." Audiences expect this in every program Ailey offers. It is truly a time honored classic.

I saw this in person and fell in love instantly. The music was so amazing, that I purchased this and sent it to my mom as a gift. She loves it and plays it often. Shipping was quick and the product superior...just like the live show! Buy tickets...see the show and then buy THIS! Or...just buy this if you can't go...you won't be disappointed.
