"To me, gospel music should be simple and heartfelt. This CD has certainly accomplished that! I couldn't wait to play it on my computer; now it travels with me in my van. These songs take me back to a simpler time when the message didn't get masked by the music. The sincerity of the artists comes through their voices and their fingers in such a way that I really get lifted by their talents. For any Christian and/or bluegrass lover, this album is a must! I would love to find more like this one ... I keep huntin'..."

"This sounds more like a "country gospel quartet" collection. For a much better bluegrass collection, try Rounder's "25 Years of Bluegrass." Much better gospel bluegrass CD's are Ricky Skaggs' "Soldier of the Cross" and The Isaacs' "Increase My Faith" or "Pieces of Our Past.""
Nice, but "Essential"?

"This is an enjoyable listen, but "essential" seems a bit much, given that it lacks some of the greatest bluegrass gospel musicians, folks like the Country Gentlemen, Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, Stanley Bros, Bill Monroe, and Ricky Skaggs (esp. his earlier albums). Buy it, enjoy it, but move beyond the "essential" if you want the best."
