One of the most popular regional gospel groups, the Primitive Quartet, from Candler, N.C., has issued around two dozen albums over a long career. Their singing—and often their song selection—falls somewhere between Bluegrass gospel and Southern Gospel, though in recent years they have been getting closer and closer to a pure Bluegrass sound. This album, though one of their earlier efforts (1994), is probably the one most likely to appeal to the Bluegrass audience: it bears the influence of the multi-talented David Johnson, who plays 6 different instruments and most likely is responsible for the arrangements. There are only 10 songs here, but they are well chosen classics, and the Quartet does a lovely job on them (THE LILY OF THE VALLEY is particularly nice). If there is one recording to get by this group, this is probably the one. Fine job on I’LL LIVE IN GLORY, JUST OVER IN THE GLORYLAND, I’LL MEET YOU IN THE MORNING, I FEEL LIKE TRAVELING ON, etc.
