Notes / Reviews
With this 1997 release, Sweet Honey, formed in 1973, moves toward the quarter century mark with a look back at their finest recordings on the Flying Fish and Redwood labels, 1976-1988. The repertoire of this powerful acappella ensemble of African-American women singers covers an unprecedented range of original and traditional songs based in an historical legacy of resistance against oppression. With an exciting range of vocal styles and harmonic blends, this 2-volume edition features many of their most-requested songs, including Fannie Lou Hamer, Oughta Be a Woman, Testimony, Biko, They Are Falling All Around Me, More Than a Paycheck, On Children, Breaths, plus 2 previously unreleased tracks, As Long As I Have Breath In My Body and Cape Fear River Chant -- 34 in all!
