"These songs and the Gatlins never grow old. As I play this CD over and over my heart is moved as I see my life pass before my eyes. It moves my spirit. God bless this family."

"If you want to lift yourself up with music and praise, this CD will give your soul some wings to fly with; these are spirit-filled songs, with the Gaitlin Brothers, the Gaithers, and many more great gospel singers and musicians. The only complaint I have about this marvelous recording is that it doesn't have any information on who the singers are on each song in the foldout insert.
The songs are terrific, with three of them written by Larry Gatlin ("The Prodigal Son", "Heartbreak Ridge and New Hope Road", and the most exquisite track on the album, "Alleluia"), as well as many other original numbers. The musicianship is fabulous, with the pianist especially notable, giving us a ripping solo on "I've Got That Old Time Religion in My Heart", and so lovely in the lilting melody of "What a Precious Friend is He".
Recorded live, it has a "close" sound, as if you are sitting within the circle of friends...and there is a family feeling to it too, a camaraderie and a love that emanates from the music, and spontaneous cheering and applause erupting within many songs.
If you're looking for well-manicured, flawless gospel, this is not for you; it has the rough edges that come with a live performance, but it also has joy, devotion, and praise to Jesus in song. Typical of other Gaither productions, it is affecting, inspiring, and energizing...and a blessing to the listener. Total playing time is 57 minutes.
Larry Gatlin sings old & new with all his family.

"The best part is at the end when the brothers are joined by their parents and sister to sing acappela the way they must have sung around the family piano. Larry's originals about his change of direction are very valid. Not enough Gatlin, though. Lots of other old-timers who were special to the Gatlins."
