Overview

This inspiring live set from the Fairfield Four is a great treat. It features one of the oldest running a cappella gospel groups charging through standards such as "Noah," "Swing Low Sweet Chariot," and "I Couldn't Hear Nobody Pray." The Fairfield Four, with different personnel, have been winning fans with such high-energy Jubilee arrangements since the 1920s, and this concert testifies that they have no intention of slowing down. If that's not enough, LIVE FROM MOUNTAIN STAGE also finds the group sharing the spotlight with some impressive guests. Elvis Costello joins for a rousing rendition of Paul McCartney's "That Day Is Done." Bottleneck maverick Lee Roy Parnell resurrects the Blind Willie Johnson/Son House classic "John the Revelator," and gravel-throated Steve Earle sings a cut by himself before leading the Fairfield Four through a rendition of his "Valentine's Day." The collaborations between roots-conscious youngsters and these national treasures are inspired. You can almost hear Kevin Welch's smile as the singers' smooth delivery perks up his New Orleans-flavored "Life Down Here on Earth." Another enjoyable document from our friends at Mountain Stage.
