Please rate this album:

Every Goins Brothers' album I've heard is a solid helping of straight-ahead, undiluted traditional bluegrass, and this gospel set is no exception. The album is notable for it's guest appearances - featuring Ralph Stanley singing lead on three cuts (City That Lies Four Square, Drinking From The Fountain and Saviour, Take Me Home); and former CMB, Larry Sparks singing lead on two (What Would You Give (In Exchange For Your Soul and Lonely Tombs)) plus lead guitar on Church In The Wildwood. Art Stamper likewise guests on fiddle on Church In The Wildwood, City That Lies Four Square, Drinking From The Fountain and Saviour, Take Me Home.

At times, the vocals are a bit off on some of the other numbers, but then this is bluegrass with the 'bark' still left on. Instrumentation is good though as is the sound quality / mix.

This was the last album to be issued as The Goins Brothers, as Ray went into semi-retirement in 1997.

NB: (a) Larry sings on (6) and (11) and plays lead/rhythm guitar on (4). (b) Ralph sings lead on (5), (10) and (13)
