Item Description...
When gospel quartets age--and hey, this is the Dixie Hummingbirds' 75th anniversary here--they're required to make crossover records that match them up with a wide array of pop musicians. Since the Dixie Hummingbirds already did that for their 70th anniversary on Music in the Air, this time they match themselves with a sure-footed backing band of rock and soul all-stars including Dr. John, Larry Campbell, Garth Hudson and Levon Helm. "God's Radar" clues the listener in that something different is going on here: it starts off like a bluegrass tune, then the guitars kick in and they're pure honky-tonk, while the bridge is a Cajun riff. The weirdest thing about the song is how well it works. The same can be said for the entire album, which mixes contemporary songs with traditional classics. "Too Many Troubles" matches swampy blues-rock to a mournful song written by Buddy and Julie Miller, with a nice, golden-age-style lead vocal by William Bright. The sole survivor of the original group is lead baritone Ira Tucker, who joined the `Birds in 1938 at the age of 13, and he still delivers rich bursts of inspired shout-singing that's absolutely goose bump-inducing. Gospel is more than the root of soul music, it's a vital, wholly American and very alive music; this expertly-produced and laidback album presents sweet proof. --Mike McGonigal

The Dixie Hummingbirds capture the joy and peace of the Holy Spirit!!! This is spirit filled joyous gospel music, that sounds like happy blues and party music, great harmonies and classic tunes(some new too)!!!

Great gospel music, classic music!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jubilation, indeed!  Mar 13, 2004
If the voice of Ira Tucker doesn't give you chills on "Too Many Troubles" and "When I Go Away", you may beyond hope. The whole album exudes warmth, and truth, and sincerity. Hats off to Larry Campbell's production, which surrounds the Hummingbirds with some top shelf talent. Here you have Campbell (guitarist with Bob Dylan), and the rest of the core of Dylan's mighty touring band, plus Garth Hudson, Levon Helm, and Dr. John. I particularly liked the Delta blues flavor of "Too Many Troubles" and "Nobody's Fault."

Slip it into the CD player; crank it up; feel better about life. It's that simple.

A truly vibrant recording; BIG fun; completely uplifting.  Nov 19, 2003
Occasionally and too-infrequently I stumble across some music so good that it reminds me of why I got into music in the first place, way-back in the fuzzy past. Well this Dixie Hummingbirds record does just that. It's completely alive in spirit and music.

I picked it up sight unseen because I always liked the classic Hummingbirds stuff, and because the CD's backup band is really intriguing. What a pleasant surprise. This record is flat-out exciting and even dance-able. Hats off to Larry Campbell for the production, and hats off too, of course, to Ira Tucker, Sr. and the rest of the Hummingbirds for their incomparable virtuosity, energy, and commitment to excellence.

Song Number 6, "When I Go Away" is my favorite, an example of just how rhythmically inventive and totally exciting classic gospel vocal arrangement can be. Everything's great though. Mr. Tucker, Sr. joined the Hummingbirds so long ago... His rich baritone voice is as strong as ever. This really IS roots music, performed by the actual originators. Don't think twice about this one... it is all meat and no gristle. Well worth the investment.

Great God A'Mighty!  Nov 14, 2003
This is the first and only album by the Dixie Hummingbirds I've listened to, and all I can say, as someone who's not really very experienced with gospel, is Oh, My, God. This is INCREDIBLE. It works on so many levels that at times you might not even realize you're tapping your foot like mad to a GOSPEL song. If I ever see that this band is scheduled to perform within 500 miles of me, I'm jumping in a car and heading out!
