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 Blind Boys of Alabama, Hallelujah, Hallelujah! Dec 12 2003
By prisrob
Format:Audio CD
We've all heard the Blind Boys of Alabama, however, you have not heard them until you've listened to this CD. "Go Tell It On The Mountain" is one of the best rousing new Christmas CD's.
The Blind Boys of Alabama started their singing group in 1939 at the Alabama Institute of the Negro Blind. They had sung for 35 years before they became known outside of the South. In the 1990's one of their gospel songs caught on and from then on they have been on the cutting edge of gospel. Now,most of the Blind Boys are in their 70's and singing strong and loud with Praise from the Lord. Hallelujah!!
This CD is #1 on the Billboard Gospel chart, and it is no surprise. Most of the songs are well known except for "I Pray On Christmas" Solomon Burke is the guest soloist on this song, and will have you bopping in the aisle. The mix of his fabulous voice with the Blind Boys marks the tune.
The Best is, of course, "Go Tell It On The Mountain" with soloist, Tom Waits. Tom Waits is a favorite of mine, and he and the Blind Boys 'get it on down'. My head is bopping and fingers snapping as I listen to it and scribe these words.
Michael Franti sings "Little Drummer Boy" with the best dum, dum dum,dum,da, da ,da, dum I can remember. The Blind Boys fill in with supreme tenderness.
"In The Bleak Midwinter" with Chrissie Hynde and Richard Thompson
brings back memories of Olde England. Great voice that Chrissie.
Aaron Neville sings the joy right into "Joy To The World" as only Aaron can. A superb rendition of the South.
"The Christmas Song" with Shelby Lynne and Clarence Fountain is as good as the original. A unique arrangement that has me singing with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Go Tell It On The Mountain Nov. 30 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
An extraordinary accomplishment and one of the best albums of the year. Does for Christmas music what the Buena Vista Social Club did for Cuban music and the Oh Brother Where Art Thou soundtack did for traditional American mountain music.. Souful and authentic with an amazing roster of guest stars who give uniformly great performances but never overpower the Blind Boys. Choice cuts: The Little Drummer Boy with Michael Franti (never would have guessed that song could be so moving!) and a rockin' version of Away In the Manger (isn't that an oxymoron?) featuring George Clinton and Robert Randolph. The love, care and passion the went into making this record is obvious in every note. A masterpiece from a true American treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps This Year's Most Original Christmas Disc Nov. 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
Every year I try and find a new Christmas music collection that is unlike any other collection I own. This year I have found it. THE BLIND BOYS OF ALABAMA'S recording GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN has a bluesy/gospel feel to it. Most of the tracks are standard Christmas fare, with the exception of I Pray on Christmas." The arrangements are far from standard, and have a simplicity that is appropriate for Christmas music, but a musical style that is addictive. The group also has great musical guests for most tracks. Guests include Aaron Neville, Mavis Staples, and George Clinton and Chrissie Hynde of Pretenders fame. I know I will enjoy this disc for years to come and plan to give copies of it to friends for Christmas.

3.0 out of 5 stars well, could have been perfect... Dec 20 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.
