These gospel songs are some of the best of all time. I remember when I was just a child, we had an 8 Trrack tape (telling my age here) and it had many of these songs on it. This is the ultimate version of "How Great Thou Art", and I always loved "Light At The River". "Medals For Mothers" is a moving beautiful song about a mother who has gone on to be with Jesus. It says "I dreamed Mother walked up the heavenly stairs and medals for mothers were given up there" and one line in the chorus that always gets me a little choked up says "If there's medals for mothers, Mamma you'll win every one". This song itself is worth buying the CD. The only thing that bothers me is why in the world would they put "Will You Be Loving Another Man" on a Gospel CD? While it is a great toe tapper of a Bluegrass song, it doesn't belong here.

It may be bargain-basement priced and only 27 minutes long, but this is absolutely top-quality Osborne Brothers, featuring their patented harmony with Bobby's piercing lead on top and Sonny's warm low tenor. The instrumental accompanyment is understated as appropriate for gospel: we are meant to concentrate on the words. Sound quality is first-rate MCA Nashville. "Medals for Mothers" is one of their all-time favourites among true country-music audiences. There's a nice bluegrass treatments of "Light at the River"; and what more can you say about "How Great Thou Art" and "What a Friend...". Warhorses all, but these are the definitive versions. Too bad that some idiot at MCA put "Will You Be Loving Another Man" here! You won't regret spending your $.

I almost wore out my cassette of this album, then bought the CD. Today I converted the songs to WAV files, and noticed for the first time what another reviewer has already described: "Crying Holy", the second song, is mis-labeled "I Fell On My Knees And Cried Holy" - a song that Michael English is noted for in the Contemporary Christian field. It was a labeling error that took on a life of its' own, as a very brief bit of Internet research revealed many lyrics sites perpetuating the error. My favorite song on this album is "Steal Away And Pray" - a song I grew up singing in the little country church where I was saved. Although Sonny got a few words wrong, the purity and fervor of the voices, plus the skilled instrumentation, make this a song that thrills me as much every time I play it, as it did the first time. "I Pray My Way Out Of Trouble" is my second favorite, but I enjoy the entire album, although the secular song is a jolt. It is well-executed and enjoyable, but should have been on some other album instead of here.
