Chicago born-and-bred minister Maceo Woods has led one of the nation's most dynamic gospel choirs since 1960. These recordings, made for the Volt label in 1969 and 1970, capture his 32-voice Christian Tabernacle Concert Choir at the peak of its popularity, rocking like a big band on uptempo selections and harmonizing with such control on show numbers that it sounds like one huge pipe organ. Included is "Hello Sunshine," an optimistic piece of progressive gospel that crossed over to the secular charts and became a staple of choir repertoires from coast to coast, as well as an extended organ instrumental version of "Amazing Grace," which sold in the hundreds of thousands when Rev. Woods first recorded it in 1954.
