All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
The Sugar Hill label's roster of bluegrass, folk, and country artists is rich with outstanding singing ensembles, and this compilation shows them off at their best, performing traditional gospel music without instrumental accompaniment. The styles vary. Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver and the Nashville Bluegrass band both dip into the African-American gospel tradition with "Climbing Up the Mountain" and "Father I Stretch My Hand to Thee," respectively.

Tony Rice and Ricky Skaggs deliver "Talk About Suffering" from their celebrated duo album, in a style that harks back to that of brother duos like the Blue Sky Boys and the Delmore Brothers. And Don Rigsby teams up with Ralph Stanley and a host of helping voices in a hair-raising version of "Vision of a Golden Crown." Perhaps the most impressive performance, though, is Doc Watson's solo rendition of "What a Friend We Have in Jesus," a traditional hymn whose simple and unadorned melody floats effortlessly on Watson's voice. Highly recommended.

    We say we are Christ like when we call our selfs Christian.Then we need to stand our ground and do what Christ would do.I beleave we need to suport our true pioneers of Gospel music and listen to real scripture form the word of God.In the songs performed by true Men and Wemon of God. And not conform to any less.This is a good place to start.Listen and learn but mostly injoy.And we need more choses to choose from.There are hundreds of Southern Gospel group out there.Very Few listed in music clubs Please add more to the list such as The Wilburns, Tony Gore, The Rupps ,The Martins ,The Freemans. The Spirit Filled Revelators ,Brian Free,and so many many more.please give Southern Gospel a big push.And order your favorit C D or tape today.thank you for letting me voice my opinion.
