From the makers of Hillbillies In Hell...A Celebration of Spiritual Triumph over Terrestrial Adversity. Originally cut on Homespun, Private-Press and Vanity labels across the 1960s, 1970s and early 1980s, this collection features voices almost never heard in the professional entertainment industry. The Dis-abled, the Less-abled, the Blind, Cancer survivors, those confined to a Wheelchair, those born with Dwarfism, those born without Limbs and some with many other challenges. Here, they shine and inspire with their Talents, Strength and unique moments of astounding individual Beauty. Often cut with direct involvement from their Families and Churches, these Country, Gospel and Folk songs tell of Struggle, Questions, Doubt, Faith and Joy. Each side representative of the Power of the Human Spirit to overcome Adversity: thankful to be part of the Great Mysterious Gift of Life. Hear the Divine Spark of the Human Spirit transform Disease, Blindness, Mental Disability and Physical Affliction into Faith and Gratitude. These are stories of Hope and Spiritual Fortitude. Not Cloistered nor Ashamed, this Righteous Collection of Subterranean Cuts shines with an uncommon Vitality and beautiful Nobility. All sides are incredibly rare and are reissued here for the very first time. The Human Spirit in all its Strength, Vulnerability and Light....
