Synopsis

Amazon.com
Pure, powerful, and soul-stirring, Gospel Radio Gems marks a high point in Doyle Lawson's storied career. The intricate four-part harmonies are in capable hands, backed only by Lawson's delicate acoustic guitar. Recording completely live using just two microphones, Lawson (lead), Barry Scott (tenor), Barry Abernathy (baritone), and Dale Perry (bass) vibrantly recreate the gospel radio shows that graced countless Southern airwaves in days gone by. The one-guitar format gives ample room for the vocals to shine, and they glow with warmth, joy, and passion. Lawson wisely avoids rehashing the standard gospel repertoire. More than an homage to the great gospel quartets of country's past--the Brown's Ferry Four, the Swanee River Boys, and the Jordanaires among them--this album showcases one of the great gospel quartets of country's present. --Marc Greilsamer
 

CD Reviews

True gospel by the best in the business
01/30/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver is my favorite bluegrass group, and the reason they are my favorite is because of their vocals, and that is what this album right here is all about "Vocal harmony". I love this cd because of the songs and in the way that they are done. The old time singing in gospel music is gone and that is why this cd is so refreshing. The vocals here are, as with any lawson project, "simply the best" and this is the way gospel music should sound. This music sounds like it came right out of a small mountain country chruch and that's the way I like it. If you love true country gospel music, this is the one to buy."
What A Gem!

"I've been a fan of Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver for years. In my opinion, they are consistently the best Bluegrass-Gospel group in the business. I've always enjoyed Doyle Lawson's diversity. Several years ago, he and his group recorded an all-a cappella album that was fantastic. I didn't think it could ever be topped. It has been topped. Gospel Radio Gems is a stroke of genius. Doyle Lawson has captured the sound of rural, southern gospel as heard over radio in the 40's and 50's. With only a guitar keeping rhythm, 14 wonderful songs are shared with us. Most of the songs were new to me, yet had the "old sound" I love. Thanks D.L. and Quicksilver for a wonderful project."

"I just purchased this CD and love it. It hearkens back to the days of gospel radio, pure and unvarnished. The technical production is superb and the harmonies very tight. This is a fun CD!"
