REVIEW

“In the last few years the Campbell Brothers have gone from playing in their local church in upstate New York to literally playing all over the world. Sacred Steel On Tour! captures the brothers as they spread the gospel live to venues in Minneapolis, Atlanta and New York.
The Sacred Steel tradition with it's emphasis on lap steel guitars got it's start back in the 30's but it's only been recently that the music has become known outside the church. The Campbell Brothers were one of the first to take their music to a larger audience and now play to enthusiastic crowds all over the world. The music's powerful, uplifting message has struck a chord with audiences who never fail to be won over by the Campbell's magic. I was lucky enough to be at four of the concerts on Sacred Steel On Tour! and it does a good job of documenting what this music is all about. Nine of the twelve cuts were recorded locally: six at their church in Rush, New York, two at the 12 Corners Coffee House and two at the George Eastman House in conjunction with a screening of the Sacred Steel Video released earlier this year. It's not surprising that some of the hottest moments occur during the church services with highlights going to to the wailing "Scott's Testimony" featuring four pedal steel players including guest Rev. William Scott as well as Chuck, Phil and Darick Campbell and the moving "Love Lifted Me" with the whole assembly joining in on the chorus. "A Prayer meeting At Mary's House" was also recorded at church and is a blistering workout but marred a bit by the opening testimony of Bishop Charles Campbell which suffers from muddy sound. Other highlights include a pair of cuts featuring vocalist Katie Jackson on the moving "Pass Me Not" and the rocking "Didn't It Rain."
The Campbell Brothers are an absolute must to see live but if you can't Sacred Steel On Tour! is the next best thing.”
