All In The Joy, The Big DooWopper's first CD
(Delmark 742), featured a wonderful blend of Chicago
blues, R&B, soul blues, doowop and other related
styles. This time the entire program is made up of gospel
songs associated with Mahalia Jackson. The Big DooWopper
sings all the parts including the harmonies, creating
exciting performances in the classic gospel quartet
format, like the moving "Lead Me, Guide Me". There's
even two songs with twenty voices! And there's solo
pieces -- just the DooWopper singing his heart out and
wailing on the piano, like the opener "Dig A Little
Deeper". Another moving musical testament by the sight-impaired,
street musician from Chicago.
