  • $13.50


Here is a very nice collection of good gospel songs well performed by this Oklahoma band. Berline—the fine fiddler who contributed significantly to one of Bill Monroe’s better bands of the 1960s—plays as much mandolin as fiddle here. He is ably backed by long time comrade John Hickman on banjo, and Brad Benge does a solid and pleasant job on the lead vocals, and picking some good lead guitar. The only negative here is the over zealous drumming which gets out of hand on at least 4 or 5 cuts. Strongest cut is the opener, I’LL HAVE A NEW LIFE—a powerful, beautifully done quartet. Others include JOSHUA, WHY ARE YOU HUNGRY, I’LL FLY AWAY, CRYIN’ HOLY, PEACE IN THE VALLEY, etc.
