The Blind Boys Of Alabama

The Blind Boys Of Alabama

Biography

Considered "Hard Gospel" in the 1960s, this vocal quintet was one of the many groups combining traditional Gospel structures with dynamic soul and R&B instrumentation. Unlike many of their peers, however, the Five Blind Boys of Alabama added a stronger blues flavor, often favoring slow, soulful songs over the more energetic workouts performed by everyone else. Coupling these ingredients with close harmonies and impassioned leads, they were extremely popular and influenced a generation of secular musicians. A decades-spanning catalogue provides exciting interpretations of many old standards, to which they lend their time-honed expertise.
