"This album is definetly a Gospel Treasure that has been hidden for far too long. I grew up as a child listening to my parents playing this album every Sunday. Today I am a grown woman, and I still yearn to hear sweet sounds of Jim Reeves. My favorite songs on this album are: Precious Lord Take My Hand, My Cathedral & This World is Not My Home. This album has not just touched my life, but the life of many of my family and friends. When I listen to Jim's voice on this album, I definetly know that the Divine one put him here on this earth to glorify us with his sound and style of Grand Traditional Gospel. They are numerous gospel albums out there to mention, but this is by a far the most superlative of them all. I have spent years writing to BMG & Heartland trying to get this album printed on cd, until I came across a company that was selling this as an Import from out of Germany. I ordered 3, and I also had a family member(uncle)whom ordered 4. This album will not only bless your heart, but it will also comfort your soul. Whenever I listen to this album it just does something special to my heart, that only the Divine one can explain. This album will definetly change your life in anyway possible. For you have never been anywhere until you have been "Across the Bridge" with the Essential Jim Reeves! This is my number one pick for the Millenium. I encourage you to go out and get a copy of this album, if you don't already own it. Remember, "This World Is Not Our Home", we are just passing through."
WE THANK YOU-JIM REEVES!!

"What a beautiful album by the velvet voice of country music Mr. Jim Reeves! When released in 1962 this album had 12 songs on it, this remastered version has 16. The sound quality is superb! The song selection, marvelous! Tracks like "Where we'll never grow old", "I'd rather have Jesus", and "My Cathedral" are gospel music classics! And who better to sing these hymns than Jim Reeves. Even if you don't like religious music, you can't help but love this cd. 36 years after his death, these Jim Reeves recordings still sound as fresh as the day they were recorded. And if you have always been curious about the velvet voice of Jim Reeves, look no further! This is a great way to get to know this man's timeless voice. I'm glad this is a cd release, if it were on vinyl, it would be worn out by now! I strongly recommend this cd to anyone who enjoys Jim Reeves, and especially to music fans who never heard of Gentlemen Jim. You like music? This will be music to EVERYONE'S EARS!!! Thank You Jim Reeves for such a beautiful album, for generations to come."
Its just right

"For most people, gospel music is either too abrasive or too slickly done. Its got to have soul but needn't be emotionally overwraught. Jim Reeves performances are just right. For fanatics he may be too smooth, but every one else can just appreciate the fact that these lovely songs are performed by one of the warmest voices in recorded history. It is a perfectly lovely baritone that is never overextended. Familiar hymns like 'I'd Rather Have Jesus' and 'Take My Hand Precious Lord' are sung with equal measures of confidence and humility. Less familiar songs like 'My Cathedral' and 'We Thank Thee' are given what must become definitive performances. If you enjoy Elvis' quieter gospel recordings, you will love this album."
