A Source Of Joy & Inspiration To All The World

Not a whole lot of recent discoveries on this one. But, it's a great mix, nonetheless.

The Dynamics and Candi Staton are probably the newest to me and they have real standout tracks on here.

The Charles Spearin track should put a smile on your face. I had the privilege of seeing him perform this track live at an encore of a BSS show a year or two ago. Not only did I think it was a clever concept, but I was very impressed by his ability to pull it off live.

Recently, I had the opportunity to work with Kashmir on a short film that documented their first U.S. tour. The video is still being worked on, and I will post it as soon as possible.
Anyways, my friend Craig and I were scouting the venue Kashmir would be playing. We went on the cheapest night possible and the band playing just so happened to be Choir Of Young Believers. Neither of us had any intention to stay for a full show. Our only real intent was to figure out where we were going to place cameras. Choir started their set and we were both immediately sold. A very good band both live and on their debut full length record, This Is For The White In Your Eyes.
