The Blind Boys Of Alabama - Spirit Of The Century (Expanded Reissue)

Produced by John Chelew with Chris Goldsmith, 2001’s Spirit Of The Century, mixes soulful new arrangements of traditional hymns, with songs by the Rolling Stones (Exile On Main Street’s “I Just Wanna See His Face”), Ben Harper and Tom Waits - including “Way Down In The Hole” which became the theme for HBO’s The Wire, performed by the Blind Boys Of Alabama for Season 1, and included here. To make this release even more special, seven live performances of album tracks recorded at New York’s The Bottom Line have been added.
