Format:Audio CD
The Blind Boys of Alabama have been recording for more than 60 years, and only now have gotten around to recording a holiday CD. The result? A work of both comforting familiarity and startling innovation. There are genre-crossing guest appearances by Aaron Neville, George Clinton, Chrissie Hynde and Shelby Lynne (among others) --- perhaps the most brilliant is Tom Waits' contribution to the title track; the gravel-voiced singer meets gospel tradition head-on for a meld of doo-wop and gospel that's mournful magic.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Must" for your Christmas Collection Dec 23 2003
By TeeBee
Format:Audio CD
This is perhaps the best collection of Christmas-related material that I have heard in the last twenty years! I was hooked from the very first track. The Blind Boys are fantastic with or without guest vocalists, but most of the pairings work beautifully (with the exception perhaps of Chrissie Hynde - I love her, but she just doesn't mesh with the group or material here). The Mavis Staples track is particularly soulful, but even Tom Waits does a fine job on "Go Tell It On The Mountain." Buy this and "pray" for a sequel!

3.0 out of 5 stars well, could have been perfect... Dec 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
I would recommend this cd wholeheartedly except for a few songs, which seem out of place. I am sorry, but Tom Waites sardonic character, and raspy vocal timbre does not suit this Gospel music, neither does Chrissie Hynde's antithetical character or song delivery. It's a wonder they did not have Ozzy sing Little drummer. Well, I almost lost control of my car when 'Born in Bethlehem' played. That is one great track. I imagine they wanted crossover business for the pop crowd, but I wish they left out these wannabe's and stick to the roots. I guess that is not where the money is however.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment Dec 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
There's only one good track on this CD with Mavis Staples. Buy it for that. The rest sucks

5.0 out of 5 stars GO TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW Dec 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a great Gospel record. Forget that it is Christmas songs, this is positively majestic mighty music in service of devotion from deep, all the way deep in the soul. I actually can not stand Christmas music, but I felt driven to my knees the first time I heard this. There is quite a panoply of diverse guests on this that makes the ecumenical message of Christmas all the more clear and direct. This is a record for the ages.
"Last Month of the Year" resounds profoundly as the CD gets under way, and from there, the music just gets more and more awe-inspiring. Tom Waits joins the Boys for the title track, and you'll never listen to this song again without remembering this take on it. The great Solomon Burke steps away from his ministry in Philadelphia to essay "Prayer on Christmas" and the marraige of his voice with the Boys is one made in heaven itself. Chrissie Hynde delivers "Bleak Midwinter" with just the right sense of loss before redemption. Mavis Staples sweeps all before her with "Born in Bethlehem."
In one of the most unexpected pairings you'll ever hear, the Boys enlist George Clinton for "Away in the Manger" and it is absolutely the right touch. The entire album has been put together with such incredible care that you are moved by its spirituality as well as in awe of its sheer conception and power. When it all comes to a profoundly reverential close in "Silent Night", you'll feel even the Pope couldn't get his close to God.
You'll return to this disc often, and not just at Christmas. The Blind Boys of Aalabama have a vision of what Music cand be and can do. God Bless them with a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Joyous Celebration of Christmas Dec 16 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What a wonderful expression of joy and celebration! The Blind Boys only Christmas CD expresses as only they can the soulful renderings of Christ's birth! The CD's first cut, Last Month of the Year will have you on your feet and clapping..their rendition of Away in a Manger will have you singing along. A long awaited triumph. You'll love it.
