On this retrospective album, acoustic slide and fingerpicking guitar legend Catfish Keith performs 17 songs from his wide repertoire of gospel music. Catfish’s music is rooted in the tradition of foot-stomping blues, roots and gospel music. This is a compliation of gospel pieces from ten of Catfish Keith’s earlier albums and includes originals and his unique versions of works from such great artists as Blind Willie Johnson, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Joseph Spence, the Reverend Gary Davis, Bind Willie McTell and Bo Carter.
“His Delta delivery is one of the best in contemporary blues…at once a catharsis and powerful visual statement of resilience, Keith calls down fire and brimstone with every lick of this emotionally charged performance.” – Living Blues
“…utterly stunned with mouth hanging open and chin dragging the floor.” – Andy Tate
