Item Description...
On the follow-up to their Grammy-winning album Spirit of the Century, the three gospel-singing septuagenarians celebrate the holy side of secular songs in hopes of connecting with "the generations that are behind us," as founding member Clarence Fountain put it. Always alert to the potent message of God's mightiness, they exuberantly spiritualize the Stevie Wonder title track and Curtis Mayfield's "People Get Ready," as well as choice picks from the songbooks of Prince ("The Cross"), George Clinton ("You and Your Folks," grafted onto the 23rd Psalm!), Ben Harper ("I Shall Not Walk Alone"), and others (Harper guests on three tracks). A few uplifting traditional gospel numbers turn up, too. Throughout the program, Blind Boy Jimmy Carter's stirring tenor voice is a minor miracle. And "sacred steel" guitarist Robert Randolph and his Family Band are important to the success of the album, supplying genuine fervor to grooves that complement the elders' heaven-bound vocals. --Frank-John Hadley

Higher Ground  Dec 26, 2006
Purchased this CD for my son from his Christmas wish list -- but I also have enjoyed it very much. It was shipped and received exactly as promised with no problems.
Great Album -- not just for Gospel fans!   Feb 17, 2005
I've been more a blues and rock fan, but after hearing the Blind Boys of Alabama on their "There Will Be a Light" CD with Ben Harper I decided to buy "Higher Ground". What a great CD and what moving music. Every cut is superb. I would recommend this CD to anyone who likes great music.
Great Album  Sep 24, 2003
I love this album! They all have great soulful voices and a really great back-up band. Nice variety of songs from slow ballads to rocking blues.
The other senses do get stronger  Sep 7, 2003
Glad they weren't the Deaf Boys of Alabama. My first listen was off Peter Gabriel's latest album which features the Blind Boys in a couple tracks. Great harmonies brought me to this album, and after accidentally running into a concert of theirs during the Montreal Jazz Festival a night before I was to see Peter Gabriel in concert, I was only disappointed that they didn't show up to perform at the last concert of Gabriel's tour the next night. However, I was in awe! The presence, the power and they rocked the house. I wished I was able to find a rockin baptist church so I could hear this kind of live musical power on a weekly basis. You won't be disappointed in this CD.
The Blind Boys weave their voices in spiritual fervor  Feb 26, 2003
Though they have gospel origins, the Blind Boys of Alabama have garnered world-wide secular acclaim with the raw passion of their singing and harmonizing. They've been together for so many decades that they have all blended their vocal skills together to form a spiritual orchestra that moves you through not just spiritual classics but some original versions of popular contemporary hits as well.
