This was very fresh and inspirational. The Five Singing Sons do their Father in Heaven proud with this selection of their hits. I have to admit I have never heard of them and at first believed it would be "Give Me That Old Time Religion" stuff. How wrong I was. Instead, here was a wide selection of musical tastes especially from the Motown area. Otis Redding. Wilson Picked and so on. It had rhythm and blues tunes as well as the up tempo beats. A good example of this is seen in the track "Hotel Happiness" as well as "Only One Way". Summer is here. Drive along to the beach with the Five Singing Sons and let your mind drill away but whatever you do, as they say in one of their hits, "Don't Forget The Bridge" for if you do you will miss the "Hotel Happiness" that is there for us.
