The Sensational Barnes Brothers (USA)
"Nobody's Fault But My Own"
Bible & Tire Recording Co.
Can gospel music be topical? Can it be faithful, modern and commercial at the same time? The answer can be found in the first album of The Sensational Barnes Brothers. With the family legacy well present (his father was the renowned gospel singer Calvin "Duke" Barnes and his mother a Raelette by Ray Charles),in the album "Nobody's Fault But My Own" these two brothers have taken to date some original songs recorded by Designer label from Memphis along the 70's. Under the production of Fat Possum's "Bible & Tire Recording" sub-label, these eleven songs sound modern, fresh and discover exceptional singers. Otis Redding, San Cooke or Al Green fly over the entire album next to Pops Staples, Five Blind Boys Of Alabama or Aretha Franklin. As Fat Possum claims "It's soul music without the sex", and to round it up, soul-gospel music with no more. A brutally good álbum.
