    The connection between rural blues and spiritual music is sometimes overlooked. This 1966 recording, featuring McDowell, his guitar, and the Hunter's Chapel Singers of Como, Mississippi (including his wife Annie Mae), is one of the best illustrations of how closely the styles can be linked. McDowell and company perform what the record subtitle calls "Mississippi Delta spirituals" on this stark and moving set, which includes a version of one of his signature tunes, "You Got to Move." The CD reissue adds three previously unreleased tracks. ~ Richie Unterberger

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (5/95, p.57) - 4.5 Stars - Very Good Plus - "...classic... AMAZING GRACE is a deeply moving gospel blues experience..."
    Living Blues (1-2/95, pp.98-99) - "...This CD contains some of the most haunting, undiluted and powerful African American music ever recorded.... McDowell's ability to rework his guitar style to meet the needs of a sacred setting confirms his standing as one of the true geniuses of Delta guitar."
    Mojo (Publisher) (1/95, p.111) - "...[McDowell] wears his Sunday clothes for...all of AMAZING GRACE...his bottleneck guitar lining out hymns sung by the congregation of his local church..."
