  • about this album

    The five-time Grammy Award–winning Blind Boys of Alabama have been active since 1939, when the group met at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind. The Los Angeles Times likened the album to "a great gospel performance," with its "slow and medium tempo devotionals” and “roof-rattling rave-ups.”
