Product Description

This is the world-wide, Christian country music, ground-breaking album that helped usher in the traditionalist revival movement in Gospel music. Top-5 in virtually every major Awards' listing of the season including Grammy and Dove. Ann-Margret and producer-writer Art Greenhaw here also pioneered a new genre of Christian country music with this album: Christian romance, since several of the tunes have an earthly love-meets-God's-love vibe. Soothing and sexy and soulful and spirit-filled, this is an album that introduced the world to Ann-Margret In The Spirit. 2 more albums of beauty and passion followed: a Christmas collection and God Is Love 2 album. This, the original adventure, is hard to beat for its rootsy charm and its all-American girl meets Gospel joy. The Jordanaires and The Light Crust Doughboys are at their country and doo wop best as backers and on occasional leads.

About the Artist

Ann-Margret is one of the world's most popular and acclaimed actresses, singers, and dancers. The Jordanaires are one of the world's top vocal groups and the most recognized vocal backing group. The Light Crust Doughboys are originators and masters of the western swing and rockabilly music styles. James Blackwood is perhaps the most recognized gospel singer of our times and named "gospel singer of the century" in publications.

I've been a big fan of the recordings of the Light Crust Doughboys for a good while but was hesitant to pick this cd up because I wasn't all too familiar with the work of Ann-Margret, only a few of her films. I can't believe I even hesitated! Ann-Margret has blown me away, ever note she sings, everytime she delivers the messages in these songs I am touched so greatly, it's a marvelous feeling!!! The song are so inspirational and very catchy as well, great "old-time" gospel! Art Greenhaw really hit the mark with "Carry My Boat", "Low Singing Bass", and his choice of Ann-Margret as a vocalist. I've been listening to gospel music for a long long time and it's rare that you hear the songs delivered with such power and emotion, you can HEAR Ann-Margret's devotion. Thanks for this wonderful recording, I hope to hear more from this lovely lady.

This is one of the greatest country gospel CDs of all time, great songs, great stylistic vocal interpretations by Ann-Margret, perfect backing and accompaniment by The Jordanaires and The Light Crust Doughboys. Evidently the world and the music industry think this is one of the albums of the year, since it was awarded Grammy and Dove Nominations for best album in its field. If any Ann-Margret fans who only desire that she sing lounge music will stick to reviewing what they know about, then new fans will get a much more realistic view of the wide-ranging talents of one of the female pop singers of the century: Ann-Margret! Check out all the awards received by this ground-breaking album!

I just received my copy of this cd and have to totally disagree with the review below mine...Ann-Margret's voice is so filled with emotion and spirit that the songs come alive. Her voice retains the breathy-sexy sound she is famous for but it's obvious when she is singing that she means every word coming out of her mouth and who can criticize someone who obviously loves the Lord that much??? I think this is a fabulous piece of work.

A premier sex symbol for the past 4 decades, Ann-Margret has enjoyed new-found popularity beginning with the Grumpy Old Men series, but this is the pinnacle of her recorded sound and work. Every cut on this CD has a timeless quality to it. Every song sounds fresh and totally-inspired.It'll be interesting to see if this release gets discovered by radio. It maybe too Americana and country to get on FM rock radio. But what it is, is pure magic.Producer Art Greenhaw, The Jordanaires, The Light Crust Doughboys, and Ann-Margret have created melodies that at their best are awesome. It's like the very best of western swing, pop, and country---combined.Down-home folksiness, classic and traditional gospel, heaven-reaching harmonies by The Jordanaires, hot/Texas roadhouse blues guitar picking by Art. Among the standouts are "Carry My Boat" a finger-snapping gem that is a pop masterpiece. "God's Silver Soldiers" is in the doo-wop style of country that you'll listen to time and time again. Ann-Margret has found her heavenly team of musicians and her best songs ever.

It was announced yesterday that "God is Love" is nominated for a GRAMMY AWARD! Congratulations to Ann-Margret, Art Greenhaw and everyone else who makes this cd truly inspiratonal. Me, being a Throwing Muses, Ani DiFranco, Stevie Nicks, etc. fan never really thought about listening to this cd...merely bought it because it featured my idol, Ann-Margret. To my surprise I throughly enjoyed the original and classic songs featured here. Art Greenhaw's songs are inspirational and filled with hope, presented in a catchy, moving way. Ann-Margret's vocals are so incredibly intense and sincere, it is apparent that she means every word she is singing. The songs come across a great southern-gospel/revival style that might not be everyone's "cup of tea" but can still be appreciated for its message. This cd deserves to be a huge success, I think the GRAMMY nod is the first step! I mean how can a cd featuring Ann-Margret singing "The Hallelujah Yodel Lady" be a bad thing??? :-)

Ann-Margret has "COME HOME"! When a performer rediscovers that essence ofherself that so made her a star to begin with, and when a singer finds the perfect way to express her unique talents, then it's a beautiful thing to behold. And this is exactly what has happened to Ann-Margret in this milestone album: she's found the album she was born to do. The ultra-feminine style of Ann-Margret is so effective on this fantastic collection of new country gospel material, it's fandom's loss for 40 years that she wasn't singing this type of material before.The cocktail, bachelor pad music which RCA presented her doing so much of--- pales in comparison to this authentic, Americana sound! Ann-Margret singing her heart out in gospel music while she's on tour with "Best Little Whorehouse"...I love it! What a concept! Methinks who ever thought this up should not only get the Grammy, but a Pulitzer Prize and everything we can think of, as well! This is a "KING OF A CONCEPT" album. And The Jordanaires with Ann-Margret---just absolutely a letter-perfect sound for her, and so much stronger on The Jordanaires' part and this production than on her famous Top 20 hit, "I Just Don't Understand" with The Jordanaires...All around, this is just flawless, roots Americana production combined with the genius pairing of Ann and The Light Crust Doughboys and The Jordanaires.Just fantasic instrumentation and arranging.Why is it that we're getting so much superior CD album product on small, independent labels like this one?Read more ›
