The Campbell Brothers: The Judgment

For our Spiritual Sunday selection during Black History Month, I bring you a little sacred steel from The Campbell Brothers. Recorded in Rochester, NY, the song kicks off with Darick Campbell on lap steel and then brother Chuck on pedal steel guitar chimes into the mix. Philip Campbell is on guitar and Carlton Campbell plays the drums.

I’m not sure who the guy on bass is, but Denise Kirby is one of the three ladies adding vocal talents. You can almost close your eyes when Darick and Chuck do one of their leads and at one point it almost sounds like Duane Allman and Dickie Betts.

This is great music from this unique musical style that grew out of the House of God church fellowship. The denomination’s incorporated name is the unwieldy “House of God Which Is the Church of the Living God the Pillar and Ground of the Truth without Controversy.” Try saying that three times real fast.
