LABEL: Kingsway AC2345
RRP: £8.80

Reviewed by Paul Davis

Parading her heartland-country-gospel music wares on this interesting, attention-retaining re-release, Mary is a songwriter with an improving track record in an easy style. Overall the '70s production could come over with a little more punch, but this venture of re-mastering is worthy of success. Several songs in this collection would be good country airplay quality. The album competently displays not only the sincerity and ability of the group, but a skill as a selector of a good song. This is the kind of country-gospel music that is heavily influenced by the varied talents of the USA's Gordon Jenson, Hank Williams, Bill Gaither and such.

"Bring back the springtime". This song is amazing, I'm so sorry it wasn't put on their recent re-release on cd. It has such a meaningful message. I told Mary this at a Christmas concert they gave in ballynahing in the seventies.

I don't believe this album has ever been issued on CD. The vinyl version is available on Amazon. Beautiful songs.

Mary Mckee's music planted a seed of love for gospel music when I first listened to her music as a twelve year old boy in 1983. Since then I've been looking for a place to buy. Kindly give me data on how I can order this music, either CDs or videos. God continue to bless this band if all the members are still alive.

The reviewer is quite right. From the sample audios one can tell how good and inspiring the songs are. I am a Malawian and am in Malawi. I am a practising Chritian. Your terms and conditions deny and deprive me of access to these wonderful Christian songs. But even if you made them available to people outside Europe, I would not be able to buy because I do not have money. My humble request is: Would you please, brethlen, make the 3 CD box set availabe to me for free so that I and my family could also be worshiping our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ through the songs?
