Editorial Reviews

Formed in 1939 at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind, the five-man singing group Blind Boys of Alabama purvey a stirring brand of blues-tinged gospel music marked by distinctively rich and soulful vocal harmonies. In 2003, the Blind Boys released their first Christmas album, GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN, an innovative approach to traditional holiday music that boasts genre-spanning guest appearances by Solomon Burke, Tom Waits, Chrissie Hynde, Aaron Neville, Mavis Staples, and many others. The legendary gospel troupe perform selections from GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN in this concert recorded live in December 2003 at the Beacon Theater in New York City, with special guests Hynde, Neville, Staples, John Medeski, Duke Robillard, Michael Franti, Robert Randolph, and Charlie Musselwhite.

Although this DVD is from a Christmas program on PBS the majority of songs here are good old traditional southern gospel. The entire show is terriffic but if you want around 45 minutes of non stop goose bumps and high energy from guys old enough to be your grandparents or great grandparents skip directly to their stunning version of Amazing Grace and hold on tight to the very end of the show. Lead singer Jimmy Carter (no not that Jimmy Carter thank goodness) is one of the most charismatic performers in the history of show business. When he is led into the audience while performing Look Where He Brought Me From he brings the house down or more appropriately way way up again and again. I only paid $2.50 for the DVD but in the short time I have had I have gotten $1,000 worth of enjoyment from it

One of the best shows I've seen.
Blind Boys of Alabama are amazing themselves. When you listen to them, you can feel so much passion, so much energy. These men have not only the sense of music, they have a sense of humor too.
And all these stars, these wonderful singers and musicians who take part in this show.
Very inspiring.

The Blind Boys are awesome in concert, and are in this DVD as well! The only thing missing was the live audience around me. A definite must have for any gospel or blues lover. I simply can't say enough.
PS. Do see them in convert should you ever have the chance. It will convet you to the blues, as it did me.
