With the release of Selections, Sweet Honey in the Rock, formed in Washington, DC in 1973, moves toward the quarter century mark with a look back at their finest recordings on the Flying Fish and Redwood labels between 1976 and 1988. The repertoire of this powerful a cappella ensemble of African-American women singers covers an unprecedented range of original and traditional songs based in their people's historical legacy of resistance against oppression. Their sound is earthy, solid, and refreshing, with an exciting range of vocal styles and harmonic blends. In this two-volume anthology, they bring us the core of a repertoire that has made them one of the world's premiere a cappella vocal ensembles. (Thirty-four tracks, including two that are previously unissued.)
