"Old Revival Going On" - The Voices of Clouds
The Voices of Clouds
From the VOC Records CD Everywhere I Go (2010)
When the Voices of Clouds first organized, Eisenhower was in the White House and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was the fresh-faced new pastor of Montgomery, Alabama’s Dexter Avenue Baptist Church.
Many years and a couple of record labels later, the quartet took time off to pursue ministerial work, but Joe James, Jr. convinced them to reunite. And that is what they’ve done. Needless to say, the Voices of Clouds have traveled up and down the gospel highway a few times since then.
So when they deliver a song like “Old Revival Going On,” which is as raucously exuberant and foot-stomping as its title suggests, you know they’ve been there, done that and saved souls in the process.
