JAMES KING 'Gardens In The Sky'

  • $13.50


What we thought at first was an all new gospel album by King—with 18 songs, no less—turns out to be mostly a re-issue of songs that appeared on his earlier Rounder albums. It is still a very nice and impressive package, with a lot of great songs that King sings with down-home emotion, backed by sympathetic accompaniment from his various bands over the years. Reading the fine print, we see that there are just 4 new recordings here, including WILL YOU FEEL AT HOME and THE PRETTIEST FLOWERS WILL BE BLOOMING. One track (STEAL AWAY & PRAY) is lifted from a Paul Williams disc, two from an old Doobie Shea CD, and 3 of the best tracks come from Rounder’s Longview albums. The Doobie Shea cuts include Dan Tyminski, Aubrey Haynie, James Alan Shelton, Don Rigsby and Barry Bales, and of course the Longview numbers have Don Rigsby, Dudley Connell, Glen Duncan and Joe Mullins, so it’s not hard to see why these are the tightest & most effective tracks on a strong album.
