Go Tell it on the Mountain
(EMI)
Wanna feel the spirit this Christmas? Go for the Blind Boys, who groove with the heaviest gospel sounds. They’ve been around since the 1940s, but have become world music stars of late thanks to Peter Gabriel’s Real World label. A flurry of guest stars join them for these swingin’ spirituals, including Tom Waits, Chrissie Hynde and Solomon Burke. But it’s the Boys themselves who drive the multi-part harmonies, putting the joy in “Joy to the World.”
—Bob Ellis
