RODNEY AND BEVERLY DILLARD 'Heaven'

  • $13.50


This 10 song album of all gospel material is an inconsistent disc that includes some very nice & tasteful songs side by side with some hoky modern country material. The nicest track on the album is the first song, a lovely version of HEAVEN sung by Beverly Dillard (formerly Beverly Cotten) with tasteful guitar, mandolin & bass backing. Beverly also is featured on RIVER OF JORDAN and GOSPEL SHIP, where she adds her clawhammer banjo and is joined on the choruses by Rodney. SOMEBODY TOUCHED ME and WHEN MY TIME COMES TO GO are the closest to pure Bluegrass and come off pretty well. SOFTLY & TENDERLY is sung solo nicely by Rodney, whose version of WAYFARING STRANGER is also sung well but includes lackluster C & W backing. RESCUE ME and I FEEL THE RAIN are marred by junky electric accompaniment. Though the disc is uneven, there may be enough here to please those who like Rodney Dillard and Ms. Dillard’s work as well
