A new recording from The Gaithers with 17 tracks of very pleasant listening. The title track opens up proceedings featuring Buddy Greene on harmonica, the strong voice of Russ Taff and The Booth Brothers. There are a variety of other artists such as Lynda Randle, Kim Hopper, Brenda Lee (making her Gaither debut), The Isaacs, The Gaither Vocal Band plus Ernie Haase And Signature Sound. We have some lovely renditions of "Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior", "At Calvary", "Love Lifted Me", "Just A Little Talk With Jesus", etc. I was a little puzzled that there were some newer songs as the cover of the album gave the impression that these were all "great hymns", but that is only a small quibble. This is one of the better new albums I have heard from The Gaithers for some time.

I saw and listened to "Amazing Grace" last night on tv!! It touched me sooo much and I hope to purchase the cd before too long. My health has declined so much in the past 3 years and nearly all my hair is gone. I miss attending your concerts in Tulsa but am not able to go anymore. GOD bless you "all" for such meaningful old Hymns!!!! Donna
