ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Roscoe Robinson is one of the great musical talents in both Gospel and Blues.

He first recorded for Trumpet Records in 1951 with the Southern Sons. The Southern Sons are noted on a Mississippi Highway Marker in Jackson, MS. Roscoe was honored to be present when the marker was erected. In the early 50s, after a spell in the army, he continued working with gospel groups including the Five Blind Boys Of Mississippi. Roscoe Robinson is also noted on a Mississippi Highway Marker Mississippi to Alabama located in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.

From the Souvenir Book of The World Famous Original Five Blind Boys Of Jackson, Mississippi:
“Mr. Robinson sometimes makes you think that Archie still lives. He is a great singer. God has blessed him to help the Blind Boys in the demanding field with such songs as (Sending Up My Timber, 0Lord, Lord, You’ve Been So Good To Me), (Tide of Life), I Got It Within) and many more”.

The Blind Boys of Mississippi were so popular that In December 1964, the Boys appeared at the Apollo Theater in New York City and turned away hundreds of people trying to get in to the show.

After many years of singing with the “Blind Boys of Mississippi,” Roscoe Robinson started singing with the Grammy award-winning “Blind Boys of Alabama” and was with them also for many years.

Robinson was inducted into the Gospel Quartet Hall of Fame twice, once with the Blind Boys of Alabama and the other with the Blind Boys of Mississippi. In 2005 he was honored by the Birmingham Record collectors Hall of Fame and Sound Mindz Records reissued a re-mastered version of Roads and Rails with new artwork and title, So Called Friends.

Roscoe Robinson made a name for himself in the gospel music world and then crossed over into the secular realm. He has moved back and forth between gospel and R&B throughout his long career,

Robinson first recorded ‘What Makes A Man Do Wrong’ for Tuff Records. His first million seller was “That’s Enough” on the Scepter Label recorded in 1963 in Chicago, Illinois. He then went on to have follow-up hits with “A Thousand Rivers” and “Do It Right Now.” In 1971, Robinson signed with Stan Lewis’ Jewel/Paula/Ronn, and six singles for Paula appeared over the next two years, while a fine gospel album was released on Jewel in 1972. Gospel reclaimed Robinson after this, with outings on Gospel Roots in 1977, a re-association with the Original Five Blind Boys on their 1982 Peace International album, and a fine solo gospel set for Savoy the following year.

He has sung with David Ruffin and Eddie Kendricks of the Temptations, Patti LaBelle, B.B. King, Aretha Franklin, Lou Rawls, and many others.

His gospel hits include “Sending Up My Timber”, "Lord You’ve Been Good To Me”, and “Father I Stretch My Hand Up to Thee”.

Some Roscoe Robinson songs are Leave You in the Arms of Your Other Man, I Wouldn't Know Where To Turn, One More Time, Let It Be Me, Standing In The Safety Zone, In Time You'll See, Something Moving in Me, You're All I Need, You Don't Move Me No More, So Called Friends, That's It, We've Come a Long Way, Oo Wee Baby, I Love You, I Who Have Nothing, That's Enough, Just the Way You Are, You'll Fall in Love Again, I'm Burning and Yearning For You, Let Me Know, Why Must It End.

So Called Friends was released in 2003 and Gospel Stroll in 2005. God’s Love Lifted Me Higher released by Mississippi Delta Blues Music is said to be Roscoe Robinson’s finest album. Roscoe Robinson & The Birmingham BlindBoys give you eleven tracts which offer a variety which appeals to all generations of gospel music lovers.
