That voice. A spiritual, many have taken on “Scandalize My Name” over the past 70 years, but it’s Marian Anderson‘s contralto that elevates the delivery. Recorded in 1961, “Scandalize” is culled from Anderson’s 1962 collection of spirituals entitled He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands. Originally a nineteen track long-player (eBay has the¬†original vinyl for sale , here), the set was reissued on CD in the early 90s adding another eleven tracks. Spiritualized, indeed.
