(Mississippi Records) 12 tracks First full length album by one of the
greatest gospel musicians of all time! Boyd Rivers was an amazing but
unfortunately, little known gospel artist. Comparisons could be made to
Charlie Jackson, but in the end not too many people sound anything like
Boyd Rivers. Side one features Boyd playing stunning electric guitar
& belting out 6 incredibly heavy songs. Side two finds Boyd playing
acoustic guitar - a bit mellower but still impassioned. All the material
on this album has never been released, with the exception of 'Fire In
My Bones' - the title track of the Case Quarter 3 CD gospel compilation.
It's also on Mississippi's 'Last Time Around' compilation. It's
somewhat unbelievable that Boyd has not been heard more out in the world
- but so it goes. Mississippi are very proud to release this important
document of a real visionary original. Includes liner notes by Amos
Harvey. Old school 'tip on' cover.
