fire in my bones.

fire in my bones - raw, rare and other-worldly african-american gospel 1944 - 2007: highly recommended album.  spanning the length of four hours of gospel on three discs, most of the music covered has never been reissued on cd - many were sourced, with great difficulty, from regional record labels.  spanning from over six decades of lesser known and alternative gospel with the first recording from 1944, this set is an amazing sojourn into gospel through both time and geographical space; represented are recordings from the rural, deep south all the way to the southern california coast.  available at easy street records or at amazon.
