Robert Blair & The Fantastic Violinaires

Blair began his contemporary quartet group in the '60s and became known for his Julius Cheeks-like falsetto shouting and raving. The group has recorded up to the present. While their recent AIR Records albums have been good, their best music was recorded in the '60s on the Chess and Checker labels. ~ Bil Carpenter, Rovi

I remember in the 70s in Oakland, CA Shot got a ticket in front of the police station for jaywalking. We were in Tommy Ellison's room, and we laughed about it. I told him he was lucky, because they didn't bust him for being a pimp, since he was wearing a full length fur coat.

I remember in the 70's in K.C.Mo.. Shot didn't make the show and Paul Beasley and the Gospel Keynotes were on that show. Paul stood in for shot. It was a nice show, but not the same without shot.

Joe Willoughby my favorite song is, Tell me how long has it been. I remember when it was just Blair j.c. and shot. They still were unstoppable.

This genre of singing illicited real praise. It was simple, true, and honorable toward God and the elders. It made you very conscious of God's continual grace toward us and it made you remember those who prayed us through our foolishness. Thankful.

There will never, in my opinion, another quartet that can match the vocal range of Mr. Blair and his Fantastic Violinairs. It takes immense practice and discipline to sing falsetto on each and every song! R.I.P. Robert Blair.

Ilove JESUS,so when I'm being MINISTER to in MUSIC, in a SERMON, a TESTIMONY, or just when someone is blessing me only by saying have a BLESS DAY! So, to me all these songs have a meaning, somewhere in the course of any given day I'm lifted up by a song. So I love all of these song they take me way back. I'm "56 had and still got bad health. So I'll really happy to hear all of these.

I really love this song and have not heard tis song in a long time. Thank you for bringing this song back. We who still have a mother should remember this song and cherish our mother.

Nobody like Blair and what about Shock? There will never be another exactly like them. I've heard good immitation, but no duplication. But when we get to heaven--you talking about singing!

Robert Blair was one of the best Gospel-enter t a i n e r s the world has come to know. He knew how to engage an audience and NEVER let you forget He was singing for Jesus. I pray he got his 'crown.'

Now this is Gospel as I remember, as a kid! Wow! Long before Kirk and all of this contemporary stuff. . . It is good that groups like Lee Williams and Keith "Wonderboy" Johnson are keeping this style alive!
