Dr Albert Mulligan - Songs Of Salvation

Dr Albert Mulligan - Songs Of Salvation

STYLE: MOR / Soft Pop
LABEL: Independent

Reviewed by Trevor Kirk

A mixture of music and ministry, with Albert singing, playing his accordion, and chatting between songs, and he's joined by Theo Elsey on violin and guitar. This is very old-fashioned stuff; Albert's voice is a rather nasal, reedy tenor, the music is a throwback to the days of Sankey, and the quality of the musicianship and songwriting leaves something to be desired. Worst of all, the pace is funereal throughout. This sort of music ministry might work in a live setting, but on a CD it's a bit of a disaster.

Trevor Kirk, I came across this article you wrote and it brought back memories when Theo Elsey and myself got together in my office in my house and took only one take to produce this C D. It was a moment of praise and worship we had together and the room was filled with the Holy Spirit. I brought a number of these C Ds to the USA and they were well recieved. One young man who was a non believer took one and he played it over and over as he enjoyed the shear unprofessionalism of it but he grow to love the Lord. The intention of this c d was to bring a sence of Godlyness into peoples lives and it achieved this purpose. It was not ment for profit. It is amazing what you come across when one puts one's name into the net. I do hope you have the same joy and innner witness of the Holy Spirit when you listen to this cd again.
Every Blessing
Dr. Albert P Mulligan
One who loves Jesus
