Set Your Sails

All Music Guide - Dacia A. Blodgett-Williams
Toe-tapping, fast-moving set of Southern gospel selections from a family trio perhaps best-known for their frequent appearances on Bill Gaither's gospel performance series. Includes a few ballads thrown in for good measure and some very nice, ear-pleasing, tight harmonies, despite the obvious aging of the elder Goodmans. Pretty nice selection, actually, though a bit more suited to daily listening rather than the quiet reverence of a Sabbath observance. The song "Faithful Man" might be one exception, with its quietly moving lyrics and soft country ballad music about an aging "faithful man" nearing the end of his mortal life. Very moving. The title song is also...

The title song is also worth a thorough listen with its equally moving lyrics: "set your sails and head for home/you'll find shelter from the storm/there's no need for you to roam/set your sails and head for home."

    A New, Fresh Album

    As with everything the Goodmans put out this is a great CD. There are the older songs (but still as good today as then) like 'Holy Hills of Heaven,' 'We'll Soon Be Done With Troubles and Trials,' and 'This is Like Heaven To Me' that are done with the Goodman twist. I have heard the Goodmans sing these songs many times and each time there is a different twist on them. That is what makes them fresh and new all over again. But we must not look over the newer songs that are also on the album-'Faithful Man' and 'Set Your Sails.' Both of these songs are exquisite and full of meaning. I thoroughly recommend this album and if you buy it you will not be disappointed!
