Sojourners, The/Hold On/Black Hen Music/2007
Soul wrenching gospel vocal trio accompanied by an instrumental trio. Songs that hit the charts hard during the civil rights era sung by the Staples Singers and Curtis Mayfield. They are all worth a listen, they’ll make your toes shuffle and soul sing.
1) 3:45 Great cover of this civil rights era tune.
2) 3:13 Mid great cover of a song that has been covered by many including Moby.
3) 4:30 Mid sweet song with a children’s bent.
4) 3:44 slow/mid great cover of this classic from the mid-20th century. Love the bass.
5) 6:24 Slow starts off dreamy with some steel slide accompaniment. Picks up midway.
6) 2:10 False start with laughter midtempo sweet song.
7) 3:34 Mid classic cover more akin to the million dollar quartet countrified version.
8) 3:06 Mid suhweet a cappella with hand clapping…just plain gorgeous.
9) 3:20 Start slow and then midtempo ukulele version…super sweet.
10) 2:37 Slow and beautiful Curtis Mayfield cover…harmonies that are like hearing river.
11) 3:29 Slow and gorgeous, starts with guitar, but the guitar quickly drops away and is replaced by just the voices. Lush and lovely. End with the pretty guitar.
