In their career with King Records Charlie Moore and Bill Napier were probably best known for their truck driving songs, but it was always my feeling that their best recorded work was their gospel material—with their “GRAND OLE OPRY HYMNAL” LP my favorite of their 9 LPs. We were not aware that there were enough other gospel songs to fill up another album, but this CD is exactly that, with no duplications. Moore is a wonderful lead singer, and Bill Napier an excellent instrumentalist who is often overlooked because this duo recorded at a time when Bluegrass music was at a low point in its history (Moore went on to be an important & popular artist when Bluegrass festivals came along, and recorded many good records for the Old Homestead label—both these artists have since passed away). This welcome 12-song disc includes nice versions of DON’T WAIT TOO LONG, THAT BEAUTIFUL HOME, I BELIEVE IN THE OLD TIME WAY, WAYFARING PILGRIM, etc. Nice record.
