Christian Music Week : Nothing But The Blood - Jars of Clay and The Blind Boys of Alabama

If I were forced to pick one album, and one album only, to take on a desert island, I pick Redemption Songs by Jars of Clay. It's 13 of the old classic hymns, respectfully converted into modern (but still timeless) versions.

Nothing But The Blood is an excellent sample from the album. The message is plain and accurate: there is nothing that can cleanse us from sin except the Blood of Jesus. The harmonies of the Blind Boys of Alabama (some of the best singers in the world) just add to a wonderful arrangement and excellent singing and instrumentation of Jars of Clay themselves.

I adore listening to this song, and to this album.
