One of the truly legendary releases in the cannon of the man who defined modern Hill Country Blues, Amazing Grace finds Fred McDowell playing with the Hunter’s Chapel Singers in Hunter’s Chapel of Como Mississippi. This 1966 release originally on Testament was one of the few records producer Jim Dickinson took with him to every recording session to make sure there was always some “Real Shit” present.

The recordings also features Fred’s wife Annie Mae. McDowell and company perform what the record subtitle calls ‘Mississippi Delta spirituals’ on this stark and moving set, which includes a version of one of his signature tunes, ‘You Got to Move.'”
