The Five Blind Boys of Alabama Featuring Clarence Fountain: Deep River (Elektra Nonesuch American Explorer Series)

James Hunter, Rolling Stone, 4 February 1993

RATHER THAN preaching or hectoring, the Five Blind Boys of Alabama featuring the great Clarence Fountain just demonstrate their beliefs through the medium of music. Produced by Booker T. Jones with an alert band that includes particularly good pianos and organs, Deep River proceeds like a great concert.
