Overview

The Rounder label may not be the first one that comes to mind when you think of gospel music, but this fine midpriced collection could help to change that. Consisting of songs drawn from the catalogs of Rounder and its subsidiaries Bullseye Blues and Flying Fish, Gospel Brunch Classics is (despite its rather silly title) a great collection of performances from a variety of gospel music traditions. The Holmes Brothers bring a Harlem sound to the funkily jubilant "Praise His Name" and a very fine setting of the classic "Walk in the Light," while Irma Thomas brings a New Orleans blues sensibility to bear on her performance of "Careful Hands" and the Birmingham Sunlights deliver "Today" and "Gospel Train" in a traditional a cappella style. The famous Dixie Hummingbirds are here with a rocking rendition of "I've Been Born Again," and there's even a surprise appearance by Aaron Neville, whose particular brand of spiritual singing is usually explicitly Roman Catholic in orientation, but who collaborates here with R&B great Johnny Adams on an arrangement of "Never Alone." All in all, this album offers a varied and highly satisfying menu of gospel treats.
