«Clarence Fountain and the Five Blind Boys of Alabama» were among the leading gospel groups of the day. During their studies at Talladega College, the «Blind Boys» developed a passion for gospel music. They were quickly so successful that they left college and began their career in front of an audience of 43,000 at the annual American Gospel Quartet Convention in Birmingham, Ala. They were the first gospel group who were allowed to perform at the Apollo Theater in New York City.
Their first album, «I Can See Everybody’s Mother But Mine» was an instant and major success.
