VARIOUS ARTISTS 'O Lord How Great Thou Art Volume 2' DAY-1539-CD

Add To Wishlist

The Tennessee based Daywind company (strictly a gospel label), has put together this second fine collection of 15 sacred songs from as many different artists, most of whom are stalwarts in the Bluegrass genre. Starting with the best known of the Bluegrass names there are fine cuts by Rhonda Vincent, Ralph Stanley (TWO COATS), Doyle Lawson (WE SHALL INHERIT), Blue Highway (7 SUNDAYS IN A ROW), Alison Krauss & The Cox Family (JEWELS), Del McCoury (I'M BOUND FOR THE LAND OF CANAAN, Ricky Skaggs (ARE YOU AFRAID TO DIE), the Easter Brothers (PETER WAS A FIREBALL) as well as Lester Flatt, The Lewis Family, and Lewis Phillips. In addition there's a nice mandolin cut of HOW GREAT THOU ART from an early Chris Thile CD (pre Nickel Creek), a nice HOME TO YOU by the Peasall Sisters, and the soulful version of FAR SIDE BANKS OF JORDAN by Johnny Cash & June Carter --not really Bluegrass, but a moving performance of a great song. I had never heard of the Chigger Hill Boys & Terri, but their entry --THE DEVIL'S NO MATCH FOR A FLAME LIKE THAT --is clever and an OK rendition. This is a nicely presented and enjoyable sampling of well chosen gospel songs.
