Don't Blame God and Other Gospel Hits Review

by Dave Marsh

Hits is pushing it quite a bit: This is a tribute album from just after Bradford died in 1978, and it features the material he had been working on for his next Nashboro set. It includes a trio of songs added for the CD release. Better yet, it concludes with a previously unissued live medley of "I Believe," "I've Been Dipped in the Water," and "Jesus Gave It to Me" that captures the wholeness of Bradford's appeal like nothing since his Specialty records. Worth it for that alone, as well as Tony Heilbut's loving memorial notes.
