Always Lift Him Up: A Tribute to Blind Alfred Reed


In the late 1920s, singer, songwriter and fiddler Blind Alfred Reed became part of the first wave of country musicians to have their work committed to record—but by the time he died three decades later, he was nearly forgotten except by folk revivialists. On Always Lift Him Up, fellow West Virginians gather to shed a little more light on the slim but impressive catalog of classic songs he left behind. Alfred’s spirit is well represented here with loving renditions from artists like Little Jimmy Dickens, Kathy Mattea, Ray Benson, Tim O'Brien and Connie Smith.
