Best of the Blackwoods from RCA Records
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Gospel legend, Bill Gaither, acquired these recordings to remaster in order for gospel music lovers to enjoy the best of this group in form of CD & high quality cassette, which has never been released until now. Featured is the classic live version of JD Sumner's, "Old Country Church", in which the Blackoods kept singing over & over while the crowd still cheered for more! Others favorites are: "How About Your Heart", which featured RW Blackwood and Bill Shaw at their best, "I'm Feeling Fine" featuring pianist Jackie Marshall's famous interlude, "God Made A Way", showing JD Sumner's talent in bass singing and song writing, and of course, the beautiful, "Stranger Of Galilee", showing the magnificent, collective voices this group always had. Other personnel on these recordings include Dr James Blackwood, Cecil Blackwood, Wally Varner and Bill Lyles."
One of the best Southern Gospel Quartets from the 1950's .

"Outstanding Southern Gospel Quartet from the 1950's. James Blackwood is still strongly associated with gospel music. The world's greatest bass singer, J.D. Sumner made a major contribution to the sucess of this quartet. I hope more of their music will be remastered to additional availability of CD's so all can hear one of the best quartets who have ever performed. Maybe Bill Gaither will take this challenge."
Pretty good Southern Gospel singing.

"They weren't quite as sensational as the Statesmen, but the Blackwood Brothers were far ahead of the other groups in their field, especially in their heyday. Without question, James Blackwood, even today at age 79, remains the finest lead singer in this field of music."
