Dixie Hummingbirds - I Want To Feel Thy Holy Spirit (Peacock 1808)


I Want To Feel Thy Holy Spirit


IRA TUCKER
1925-2008


Please join me in bidding farewell to one of the most influential figures in Gospel, Ira Tucker. As the leader of the Dixie Hummingbirds for nearly seventy years, Tucker brought his own sense of style and rhythm to the music. His fabled theatrics took the quartet experience to the next level, and laid the foundation for what we now call Soul.

It would be hard to imagine American Music without him.

May he rest in peace.

Letter to the Editor



Bob Dylan helped bring Folk music to the mainstream. In the 60s he brought a generation to the political process with the times area changing a Rock anthem. In the 70s he stood up against corruption in the justice system and he helped George Harrison start the first worldwide effort to help others that was followed by other such efforts by many other artists.



He turned to Christianity in the late 70s and brought many to God with You Gotta Serve Somebody. In the 80s and 90s he kept touring and had more hits with Garth Brooks doing his to make you feel my love being Country song of the year.



Dylan’s new cd together through life from songs like life is hard to its all good Dylan has went Blues and it is clearly CD of the year. You just got to get this cd as a gift or for yourself. My all-time favorite is jokerman which is on u-tube. Let me know what you think at stevenlloydreed@hotmail.com.

Sincerely,
