Blind Boys of Alabama - Atom BombAlong with the Cuba’s Buena Vista Social Club, the Blind Boys are the coolest septuagenarians on the planet. The gospel veterans’ latest features rapper Gift of Gab from Blackalicious on the Fatboy Slim-Macy Gray track “Demons,” organ genius Billy Preston on Blind Faith’s “Presence of the Lord” and Los Lobos guitarist David Hidalgo on an ultra-hip remake of Norman Greenbaum’s gospel-rock gem “Spirit in the Sky.” Ultimately, the Boys’ infectious spirit is powerful enough to save a million lost souls.
