Five Blind Boys Of Alabama - Peel Session 26/05/1992

The Five Blind Boys Of Alabama have now been together for a staggering 70 years. Making their first public appearance in June 1944, with some members still in their early teens, the group soon became a popular attraction on the gospel circuit.

In 1948 they released debut album I Can See Everybody's Mother But Mine and have since clocked up over 60 albums in their seven decade career, the most recent being 2013's I'll Find My Way.

The group have been Grammy Award winners five times with an additional Lifetime Achievement Award presented to them in 2009. At 83, original founding member Jimmy Carter is still performing with the group today.

Surprisingly, this was the only session The Boys recorded for Peel, at the height of grunge mania in summer 1992.
