I remember the Hee Haw Gospel Quartet song-segments on the old Hee Haw show as a chance to hear country Gospel done in a reverent, simple, downhome way complete with Roy Clark's excellent, understated, country, flat-top picking. The harmonies and solo instrumentation were excellent and when I saw this Hee Haw Gospel Quartet CD being released, I thought, Wow! The old song-performances from the show in remastered form! I eagerly awaited my purchase.

Well, it came today, and I popped it in my player and with the first notes from the first song, I was disappointed! I hit my next-track button and more of the same disappointment was there. Folks, what has been done by the producers is to embellish the old performances with extra instrumentation, back-up singers, and too much added reverb. To me, this has all but obliterated the charm and excellent simple performances that I remember from the old show.

If you a have a fondness for the Hee Haw Gospel Quartet song-performances as originally performed on the Hee Haw TV show, rather than buy this CD, purchase the DVDs of the Hee Haw shows and enjoy these songs in the simple and reverent way they were intended to be heard and viewed.

I strongly disagree with the reviewer who stated that this set was not worth buying because it had been "prettified" in the studio and no longer sounded like it did when originally broadcast on TV. One obvious difference is that television speakers are usually tiny compared to almost any stereo, and will always change the sound of the music.

I have listened to these discs several times through headphones, and I can clearly hear the roughness of the performances. Not all the singers cut-off at the same time at the end of some of the verses and choruses, not everyone comes in fully at the beginning of some songs, there are occasional slight instrument flubs, and the microphones are not balanced. Buck Owens' voice is clearly heard over the other men's, so that sometimes, instead of a quartet, it's more like Buck and three back-up singers.

But these are all niggling little details that are only heard if you listen hard for them. If you just want to enjoy some good old country gospel, then let the music speak for itself. I'm sure there has been some "massaging" of the music in the studio (as old as these performances are, there would almost have to be), but I feel that is acceptable to make sure this music is not lost. I have been very pleased with my purchase of this set, and can whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone who likes country gospel.

This is old time gospel music like you would hear in a church, back in the country. It is the music I grew up on, except we sang it A-capela.
I watched the first airing of Hee Haw and watch it for many years. Back then we watched country music on TV every Saturday night on all 3 channels. Yes I'm that old. The Hee Haw Gospel Quartet captured the essence of small church singing, and that is why I gave it 5 stars. Grandpa, Buck, Roy, and Kenny, took a comedy show and added a serious moment to it, and it fit really well. This is a 2 CD set and is well worth th $20.00 investment.

the gospel portion of hee haw was always my favorite. good to see the music on the market. Remindful of childhood memories of going to church with our parents (who both passed away in 2000 age 55 and 59).

Excellent collection of old-time gospel music with sublime harmonies. This music says "home" to many of my family members, who grew up hearing these songs in church. We still sing them at family reunions. The songs are beautiful to our "hillbilly" ears. These CDs provided a special Christmas gift for my mom, who used to sing many of these songs in a church quartet with her late father in the 1930s. Her voice is still great, and she enjoys singing along with Grampa Jones and the boys. Even if you aren't religious, and even if you didn't like the TV show "Hee Haw," these beautiful gospel songs can carry you away. I'm going to order more of these for family and friends.

As a lover of Miles Davis and John Coltrane and Neil Young and Bob Dylan, I was amazed at how much I enjoyed this CD. It brought back such wonderful memories of attending the country church of my childhood, that I bought a second copy to send to my sister.

It is the Hee Haw Gospel Quartet type songs and music, but it is not by the original Hee Haw Gospel Quartet singing it.
