The Five Blind Boys of Mississippi

Posted in clips, Gospel with tags , , on October 7, 2012 by crownpropeller

I have to admit I am not a religious person – but a person in love with good music. So it really is a great pleasure to find footage of the Five Blind Boys of Mississippi led by Henry Johnson among the clips from old VHS cassettes from the collection of Otto Flückiger that Benne Vischer has digitized. This was filmed –  I think – in the early sixties. And as far as I can see this has not been on youtube before,

The Five Blind Boys sing Oh, why?, Jesus Rose With All Power In His Hands and Lord Be Good To Me. 

Unfortunately there are some tracking problems on this video. Nonetheless: Enjoy!
