"I've known & played these songs for more than 20 years, some without ever hearing the original, picking them up from other musicians I ran across. Others I learned from scratchy old LPs. The rythms are good, foot tapping stuff, sort of what we call "down home" and the words are usually Bible stories set to music - a good way to get Bible truths into folks who maybe don't read well, or who aren't familiar with them. Some of the songs are very similar to each other, and you may not want to sit down and listen to the entire collection in one sitting, but they are a good resource for this style of harmony, and I'm using it to teach my 18 yr old daughter some of the "homestyle" chords on guitar and rythm patterns.By the way, for the reviewer who wasn't sure if the 'Gales were Christian because he or she could not understand one of the words in "It's Going to Rain," it's "It won't be water, but fire the next time.""
Just a "TASTE and your HOOKED" gospel folks!

"This one makes ya feel good, like a baby being rocked in the "Cradle of God"! And not just sweet&swinging rhythm's, but wonderful quartet, singing lyrics to learn, or confirm your faith by. I mean you will actually hear "Scripture in Song" in a way only these guy's deliver. TRULY-A-JOY!!! and (Scotty G. know good music)!"

"...We used to sing that song and other songs by the 'Gales, and we played their records all of the time. From what I've listened to on this CD, the songs are done very well, but I rated it only 3 stars because these are not the original versions(especially "It's Gonna Rain" and "At The Meeting"). It would be worth your while to find the original versions."
