In a remarkable career, Del McCoury has done just about everything there is to do in Bluegrass, from performing and recording as Bill MonroeÕs guitarist and lead singer to fronting a wonderful family band that has won a truckload of awards for excellence. But very surprisingly, thereÕs one thing he had not done up until now, and that was to put out an all gospel album! And that is pretty rare for a mainstream Bluegrass artist, especially one who included powerful performances of WAIT A LITTLE LONGER PLEASE JESUS and GET DOWN ON YOUR KNEES & PRAY on previous albums. Well, that has now been taken care of with this power-packed collection of 14 songs sung & played in the best Monroe tradition. ThereÕs a nice mix of duets & quartets to go along with tough, fervent McCoury solos like Pete PyleÕs DONÕT PUT OFF UNTIL TOMORROW. The hard core Bluegrass fan will know he/she is in for a real treat when 7 of the songs are from the pen of the amazing Albert E. Brumley: some of these you seldom see recorded, but they are all good to great gospel songs: UNFRIENDLY WORLD, ITÕS SURPRISING WHAT THE LORD CAN DO, IÕM POOR AS A BEGGAR, IÕM BOUND FOR THE LAND OF CANAAN. ThereÕs other good material too, from Billy Smith, Shawn Camp, etc. A wonderful album that gets our highest recommendation!
