NEW ALBUM DOWN IN NEW ORLEANS OUT JANUARY 29 ON TIME LIFE
Blind Boys’ concerts are joyous celebrations. The Boston Globe observed earlier this month, “In concert, the Blind Boys of Alabama still raise up their bluesy hallelujahs to rarefied soul-groove highs.” In a recent concert review, The Boston Herald said, “[The] Blind Boys wow… the night was as solid as a rock.”
They may be from Alabama but they’ve been spending time in the Crescent City. The Blind Boys’ new album Down In New Orleans, their first in three years, will be released January 29, 2008 on the Time Life Music label.
The Blind Boys of Alabama are Jimmy Carter, Eric ‘Ricky’ McKinnie, Joey Williams, Caleb ‘Bobby’ Butler, Tracy Pierce, Billy Bowers and Ben Moore.
