Joseph Spence - Living On The Hallelujah Side download album

Bahamian guitarist/vocalist Joseph Spence 's humming, flailing, sensational singing and playing combined secular flair and spiritual fervor in a manner close to that of the brilliant Blind Willie Johnson and Rev. Gary Davis. This set of 1970s performances, reissued on CD, included evocative renditions of "A Closer Walk with Thee," "More and More with Jesus," and "When the Saints Go Marching In," plus equally arresting versions of "Irene Goodnight" and the holiday ditty "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town.

I wish Joseph Spence was my Grandpa. He is absolutely insane. He sounds like a demented old toothless curmudgeon and I love him for that. He grumbles, grunts and moans his way through this album beautifully. The way he picks and grunts his way through some of these tracks has a childlike magic to it. It’s incredible to hear his rough-but-masterful fingerpicking alongside his gruff mumble-singing. I think the Christmas tracks in there are weird but Spence is pretty much infallible so who cares. Joseph Spence is a, incredible legend.

Joseph Spence's music is a style unto itself. Working with songs learned from hymnals, from the radio and from local tradition in his native Bahamas, Spence developed an astounding guitar style with wild, syncopated rhythms and a unique but sophisticated sense of harmony, while he casually growled out excerpts of lyrics. Spence was a major influence on Ry Cooder. These are '70s recordings made near his home in Nassau and in concert in the . This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media.
