2 - WITHERSPOON, JIMMY - FEELIN' THE SPIRIT - (LP) 
DOXY


180 gram LP. One of the great blues singers of the post-war period, Arkansas native, Jimmy Witherspoon (1920-1977) had a slew of hits around 1950, with the most famous being a version of Bessie Smiths "Aint Nobodys Business If I Do". By the mid-fifties, however, Witherspoons career had begun to languish, as the "jump blues" style began to go out of fashion. However, Witherspoons appearance at the 1959 Monterey Jazz Festival restarted his career and exposed him to a new generation of record-buying fans. Feelin the Spirit, released in 1959, hoped to capitalize on Witherspoons newfound popularity (particularly with white audiences) by bringing traditional African-American Spirituals into the national arena. While songs like "Deep River" and "Every Time I Feel the Spirit" would have been well-known to any African American church-goer at the time, they were not known among white audiences. Interestingly, Witherspoon chose the popular "Randy Van Horne Singers" (who famously provided the theme songs to the Flintstones and the Jetsons cartoons) to sing backing vocals here.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Every Time I Feel The Spirit 02. Deep River 03. I Couldnt Hear Nobody Pray 04. Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child 05. Nobody Knows The Trouble Ive Seen 06. I Want To Be Ready 07. Steal Away To Jesus 08. Oh, Mary Dont You Weep 09. Go Down Moses 10. The Time Has Come
