Spirit in the Sky - The Best of Norman Greenbaum
Norman Greenbaum's best-known international hit song 'Spirit In The Sky' has been Number One three times for three different artists. However, it was the talented Mr. Greenbaum who first topped the charts with the song in 1970.
The atmospheric production focussed attention on an American singer, who was also a prolific writer, as this fascinating collection reveals. Pride of place here goes to 'Spirit In The Sky', which sold millions around the world and includes the immortal line: 'When I die and they lay me to rest, gonna go to the place that's the best…goin' up to the Spirit in the sky.'
Norman devised dozens more atmospheric songs, mostly celebrating his rural life style, and you can now enjoy all these great songs, freshly remastered and sounding great on this comprehensive compilation.
