I'm enjoying an uplifting start to the day courtesy of this superb reissue on Light in the Attic. The concept is pretty self-explanatory - a team of LA's finest session singers brought together by producer and visionary Lou Adler and given rousing gospel arrangements by Motown legend Gene Page. The album has languished in collector obscurity for decades but it's very much worthy of re-evaluation.
It's really a delight throughout, even the songs that you would never imagine in a gospel context like 'All Along The Watchtower' find a new lease of life in the buoyant harmonies and rock-inspired rhythms of the backing band. It's a very '60s sound, from the glory days of session bands and in-house arrangers, and the final product is vibrant and alive and flawless. If you like the uplifting sounds of classic gospel and soul and the songs of Bob Dylan, there's no reason why you won't get on with this record.
