This is the perfect CD to play to see if you're dead or not: put it on, listen to any of it for one minute - if it doesn't move you in unbelievably fantastic ways, you're dead. It's impossible not to be caught up in the harmonies of this gospel group, and the power of their singing is tremendous. TROUBLE IN MIND, MY ROCK, LOVE LIFTED ME, GLORY TO HIS NAME - every one of these performances is a musical (and spiritual) experience not to be missed. The piece de resistance, however, is THE DAY WILL SURELY COME: I never heard a 3-minute recording build, chorus after chorus, to such a climax as this song, and then with 30 seconds left the climax explodes, like a giant wave crashing on a beach, to something even more powerful. I've listened to that cut a hundred times (literally) and every single time it tears at my heart and brings tears to my eyes. The Swan Silvertones are the ultimate housewreckers in my book, and these are their finest recordings. A must-get CD for anyone with life still in them."
Smooth acapella Silvertones!

"I first "discovered" the Swan's Silvertones driving home from band gigs in Tennessee back in the 60's. There wasn't much on the radio at 3:00 Sunday Morning, but "Hoss" Allen's radio show out of Nashville's WLAC featured many black gospel groups. The Swans were my favorite.
I recently heard a song that so reminded me of them...of those long, lonesome moonlight treks back home...of the smell of beer and cigarettes clinging to my clothes even though my convertible top was down - it carried me back, so I knew where to look!
Today, driving through rolling hills, along beautiful rivers, the Silvertones are just the ticket! I so enjoy their smooth acapella harmonies...and I'm not a "religious" guy...just one who loves this beautiful music!!!
Five Stars from me!!! I believe I'll pick up another Alabama Blind Boys while I'm at it!!"

"The titles "Keep My Heart" and "After While" were well worth my money. If you like quartet singing and good harmony. This is a must!"
