In what Dr.
Stanley has described as his "last gospel recording", he has recorded a wonderful
mixture of old favorites, new songs and some spine-chilling unaccompanied
pieces to add to his amazing legacy. The 14 songs are bookended by the full
band favorites THAT HOME FAR AWAY and WHAT KIND OF MAN, with the
up-tempo ARE YOU WASHED IN THE BLOOD in the mix as well. Ralph's
version of COME ALL YE TENDERHEARTED --accompanied only by a bowed
cello --is eerie indeed, and several tracks are framed nicely by the fine lead
guitar picking of James Alan Shelton, including an excellent new version of the
Washington Phillips classic LIFT HIM UP, THAT'S ALL. Ralph handles three
unaccompanied solos (THAT WONDERFUL PLACE, PRINCE OF PEACE
and JOHN THE REVELATOR and) as only he can. With fine backing by his
Clinch Mt. Boys (including Steve Sparkman on banjo, Dewey Brown on fiddle,
John Rigsby on mandolin and James Alan Shelton on lead guitar), this is a worthy
addition to the amazing body of work that Dr. Ralph has given us. $ 13.99
