The music is superb bluegrass, with a variety of tempos.
William Kinney
About the only criticism I could make is that a couple of the songs are a bit cheesy, but that sort of goes along with the territory in the genre.

This CD is excellent from top to bottom. The late Keith Whitley fronts the band and leaves you sorry that he died at the age of 33. His voice was made for this type of music and every song has you wanting to sing along.
As always, Ralph Stanley takes Bluegrass Gospel where only he can take it with his high tenor voice.
Some of the best on the album are "Over In Gloryland", "Jesus Savior Pilot Me", "I've Just Seen the Rock of Ages" and "I am Weary."
The sound of this album was of much better quality than expected with both the vocals and insturmentation being extremely clear (recorded in the 70's, I wasn't sure what to expect).
Whether a fan of bluegrass, gospel or both, this CD is for you.

Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys are amzingly powerful on this album entitled "Clinch Mountain Gospel." The vocals and haunting harmonies that embody the Ralph Stanley style of bluegrass will definitely inspire you.

Keith Whitley does a wonderful job on the titles that he sings lead on for this album. Two of the best songs are definitely "Traveling the Highway Home," which features great banjo work and the call and response arrangement of "Amazing Grace." The haunting and archaic vocals will definitely over power you. The entire album is full of wonderful and traditional music that deals with questions of death, life, struggles, and overcoming obstacles. We find our help in the Lord and this album is honest and soul-stirring.

Clinch Mountain Gospel features some of the best and classic work of Ralph Stanley gospel. The recording sound is excellent! There is no doubt this album is a timeless treasure in the history of the Stanley style and American music. The uniqueness and talent of Ralph and his band is simply magical.

Clinch Mountain Gospel was recorded in 1977, by Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys. Members of the group at that time included Ricky Scaggs and the late Keith Whitley, both of whose vocals are featured on several tracks. The vocals are fantastic, especially the a capella call-and-response version of "Amazing Grace". The album is a great blending of bluegrass and traditional gospel sounds.

Several songs are a raw confrontation with death. Ideology is not here. Real human feeling is. The music is superb bluegrass, with a variety of tempos.

I really enjoyed this album. It's a very well made bluegrass-gospel record by an artist from whom you'd expect nothing less. Recorded in early 70s, this album catches Ralph Stanley at a point when his band was exceptionally strong, and includes customarily beautiful performances from Dr. Ralph himself. These are musicians who have a deep understanding of the material and it shows. About the only criticism I could make is that a couple of the songs are a bit cheesy, but that sort of goes along with the territory in the genre. If you like Ralph Stanley or bluegrass and roots music in general, I'd give this one a shot.

Well, Amazing Grace is just that...I searched for a version which would speak to my soul and this one is it. There is something about this gospel folk style that connects with you.

Alison Krauss has said that this is her all-time favorite album and I can see why. This album is not just a bluegrass gospel album but it is the essence of Bluegrass. Period. Keith Whitley and Ricky Skaggs are simply brilliant here at the pinnacle of both of their careers. Whether you want to call it old-time music, Mountain music, bluegrass gospel, or just Bluegrass. American music does not get any better than this.

This is one CD I can't stop listening to. Their version of Jesus Savior Pilot Me makes this a home run.
