Item Description...
Album Description2007 saw Louvin celebrate his 80th birthday amidst a swirl of activity around the release of his first studio album in ten years, Charlie Louvin. Grammy-nominated for Best Traditional Folk Album, the disc features George Jones, Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, Will Oldham, Elvis Costello and many others. Charlie toured and recorded with Lucinda Williams, made a video for the song "Ira", released a field recording of one of his many in-store performances, Live at Shake It Records, played over 100 concert dates sharing stages with Ryan Adams and Neko Case, appeared on giant festivals like Bonnaroo and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and placed a medallion around Emmylou Harris' neck inducting her into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Charlie's self-titled album earned 4 out of 5 stars in Uncut and Mojo Magazine, and sparked a bevy of great press and renewed interest in his fascinating career.

Instead of hanging back at age 80, Charlie has instead chosen to challenge himself. Steps to Heaven was recorded live with a gospel choir comprised of three sisters, journeyman gospel pianist Derrick Lee, and Chris Scruggs adding doghouse bass and electric guitar. Louvin had never recorded with black gospel musicians before, and in doing so discovered a new musical path. "I did things on the gospel record I had no idea I could do. I'd be thinking along the way, `How can I do things I've never done before?' And I did it."


Album Description
Grammy nominated artist Charlie Louvin presents Steps to Heaven, his 2008 album featuring ten traditional gospel selections and two classic Louvin Brothers songs. Produced, recorded and mixed by Mark Nevers (Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Andrew Bird, Bobby Bare Sr.). Steps to Heaven is Charlie's first Gospel record in his career. The live album presented new stylistic challenges for the 81 year old veteran artist and it was ultimately rewarding as he discovered a new musical path. Charlie Louvin received a Grammy-nomination for his previous release, Charlie Louvin! Art of the legendary Louvin Brothers and he is featured on Lucinda Williams' 2008 release.

A seriously lousy gospel choir ruins this album  Dec 30, 2008
I had high hopes for this album, but the laughable and seriously bad choir that bleats over every tunes ruins it.
