Classic Blackwood Brothers Recording Download

Mark Blackwood has a Facebook page for the classic version of the Blackwood Brothers.  He’s been mentioning for a while on the page about working on a recording of rare and previously unreleased tracks from the Pat Hoffmaster/Ken Turner era group.  The recording is now finished, and there is a free download of one of the tracks available here.  The track is “Blessed Assurance” featuring Patt Hoffmaster and is a nice example of the smooth blend that this particular lineup possessed.  Hoffmaster is another one of the underrated, largely forgotten tenors, but he does a masterful job on this classic hymn.  It also bears mentioning that the recording itself is of a very high quality, even though it was recorded now 25+ years ago.  The restoration is very well done, and the track truly sounds CD quality.  Mark has also stated that there will be a single released from this album, a song called “Living In The Land Of The Living.”  If you are a Facebook user, become a fan of the page, as Mark has left open the possibility of more track downloads, as well as information on purchasing/downloading the entire album.
