The Reed Family – Blood Harmony: A Cappella
Released 2005

Though Francine Reed is a well known name around the world for her albums on the Ichiban label and her work with Lyle Lovett, it is a little known fact that when she and her family get together they love to harmonize some deep soul gospel and R & B. It is their lifetime of singing together that makes this CD so special. Bob felt a need to bring this great musical phenomena into the studio for the world to enjoy.
