COREY GLOVER | Hymns
Selected by Terry Nelson
If you came looking for an offshoot of Living Colour, well then you were in for a huge surprise. Corey Glover always had a big voice, but he managed to stretch himself on his debut album. His mixture of rock, soul and even gospel is very similar to that of The Family Stand, who not so coincidently co-produced the album. Check out this slept-on gem.
