Freedom Highway Complete is a newly remixed, remastered and expanded
edition of the live concert masterpiece recorded by the Staple Singers
in April 1965 in support and celebration of that year's historic civil
rights marches from Montgomery to Selma, Alabama.
previously unreleased performances, the spiritually uplifting service,
"Pops" Staples' Intro and Outro and more, Freedom Highway Complete puts
the listener right in the church, with the Staples, the choir, the band,
and the congregation for a once-in-a-lifetime event.
released on Epic Records as an LP in 1965, the original Freedom Highway
album, constrained by the time limits of 12" vinyl, edited the New
Nazareth Missionary Baptist Church concert and service down to key
performance tracks. The new Legacy edition marks the first-ever release
of the full concert and service.
