The Best of Robert Blair & the Fantastic Violinaires

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tim Smith
Although they may not have reached the same stature or popularity within the gospel music industry as modern day quartets the Jackson Southernaires or the Canton Spirituals, the late Robert Blair along with his group, the Fantastic Violinaires, yet carried a strong and loyal fan base. Blair, who died in 2001, is best remembered for his gruff, preacher-like vocal delivery, a close match sound- and quality-wise to Mighty Clouds of Joy lead vocal king Joe Ligon. That essence, along with the piercing falsetto background vocals of the Violinaires, helps to make this package a memorable one.

    The Fantastic Volinaires were Fantastic

    I saw them in the middle sixies, they were a group within themselves. With a tremdious vocal ability they were in a class of there own. I wish I could find some vintage albums by them 1966-1972
