"It may be bargain-basement priced and only 27 minutes long, but this is absolutely top-quality Osborne Brothers, featuring their patented harmony with Bobby's piercing lead on top and Sonny's warm low tenor. The instrumental accompanyment is understated as appropriate for gospel: we are meant to concentrate on the words. Sound quality is first-rate MCA Nashville. "Medals for Mothers" is one of their all-time favourites among true country-music audiences. There's a nice bluegrass treatments of "Light at the River"; and what more can you say about "How Great Thou Art" and "What a Friend...". Warhorses all, but these are the definitive versions. Too bad that some idiot at MCA put "Will You Be Loving Another Man" here! You won't regret spending your $."
These Gospel songs are great, but.....

"These gospel songs are some of the best of all time. I remember when I was just a child, we had an 8 Trrack tape (telling my age here) and it had many of these songs on it. This is the ultimate version of "How Great Thou Art", and I always loved "Light At The River". "Medals For Mothers" is a moving beautiful song about a mother who has gone on to be with Jesus. It says "I dreamed Mother walked up the heavenly stairs and medals for mothers were given up there" and one line in the chorus that always gets me a little choked up says "If there's medals for mothers, Mamma you'll win every one". This song itself is worth buying the CD. The only thing that bothers me is why in the world would they put "Will You Be Loving Another Man" on a Gospel CD? While it is a great toe tapper of a Bluegrass song, it doesn't belong here."
Some of the finest bluegrass gospels available!

"The wonderful solo's and close harmony of the Osborne Brothers applied to some of the greatest gospels ever written. Spell binding for fans of bluegrass gospels!"
