The Blind Boys Of Alabama
Higher Ground (Expanded Reissue)

The Blind Boys Of Alabama - Higher Ground (Expanded Reissue)

Once again helmed by producers John Chelew and Chris Goldsmith, Higher Ground picked up where Spirit Of The Century had led, and moved even higher. Backed by Robert Randolph and the Family Band (with guest appearances from Ben Harper), new arrangements of traditional hymns were joined by songs from Harper, Curtis Mayfield, Funkadelic, Aretha Franklin, Jimmy Cliff, Prince and the classic title track by Stevie Wonder. The outcome was rewarded by the Blind Boy’s second consecutive Grammy for Best Traditional Soul Gospel Album. It includes seven live performances of album tracks recorded for KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic.
