A CD-only compilation features over an hour of their best tracks from the Flying Fish label.
While researchng material for a Harriet Tubman feature, I found this collection EXTREMELY helpful not only in capturing the spirit of the period, but the pure essence of the voice as well. Do enjoy!
A remarkable acapella album, with the full range of emotion that Sweet Honey brings to the work of music-making: sweetness, wisdom, sassiness, truth spoken to power -- and more, all in one truly pleasure-filled recording. My first and favorite in a wonderful genre.
Moving rendition of Ella's song
Especially appropriate with the acquittal of Zimmerman.. "Until the killing of a black man, black mother's son is as important as the killing of a white man, white mother's son."
We cannot rest until it come.
Formed: 1973 in Washington D.C.
Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s
