Digital Booklet
From in the late 1950’s, The Mighty Clouds Of Joy released their initial records on the Peacock label, alongside Gospel legends The Dixie Hummingbirds, The Five Bild Boys Of Alabama, The Sensational Nightingales, and more. In 1974, they moved to ABC Records, and along with producer Dave Crawford (Wilson Pickett, The J. Geils Band, B. B. King), released their acclaimed crossover release, It’s Time. The following year, Kickin’ exploded onto the charts, landing a #1 single on Billboard’s Disco Action Chart with its lead track, “Mighty High.” The album contained other high-energy originals, as well as covers of Stevie Wonder, Billy Preston, and Kiki Dee. Gospel music had branched into universal music, and songs that spoke to listeners of all genres. Despite the criticism they received from the Gospel community, their move into the world of Gospel-based R&B would prove popular, they would become three-time Grammy® winners. This reissue of Kickin’ contains the original 1975 album, plus the rare, single versions of the #1 hit “Mighty High” and the ever present “You Are So Beautiful” (which was less than a year old at the time of this cover).

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
