  • Description

    Soulful, moving and rocking gospel music that Guitar Player magazine calls "wild beyond description." The most captivating performances by the masters of the genre. The plaintive voice of the steel guitar is most often heard in country and western music, and sometimes played in white gospel praise bands. But it is rarely heard in African American churches, with the notable exceptions of the House of God, Keith Dominion and the Church of the Living God, Jewell Dominion. In these two related Holiness-Pentecostal denominations steel guitar is the dominant instrument that leads musical praises and holy dancing at some two hundred small churches nationwide. This CD is culled from the Arhoolie's numerous Sacred Steel albums, and contains some of the most innovative, soulful, exciting music you've ever heard.
