Editorial Review:

Product Description:
30th anniversary album presents Sweet Honey in their award-winning style with a contemporary sound. Features predominantly new, 2003 original material, with contributions by Toshi Reagon written especially for Sweet Honey. Earthbeat/Rhino.
Celebrating 30 years as an unparalleled music group with this release, Sweet Honey in the Rock demonstrate again that they are an American treasure. While technically proficient a cappella singers, Sweet Honey are so much more than a study in vocal pizzazz. The women do indeed gather and tell stories for the generations, chronicling modern life and its struggles and victories. Sweet Honey mask nothing emotionally and draw the listener into each saga, whether they're lamenting violence in the title track, detailing the history of voting rights (or lack thereof) in Washington, D.C., in "Give the People Their Right to Vote," or sharing the tragic tale of a civil rights activist in "Ballad of Harry T. Moore." Founder Bernie Johnson Reagon leads her group through a diversity of styles, ranging from the '70s soul sound of "Solid Gold" to the gospel of "Come unto Me." After three decades, Sweet Honey are as relevant and fresh as ever. --Michael Lyttle
