Please rate this album:

This is a Gospel album of a cappella singing, i.e. no instrumentation at all. Eight of the cuts were newly recorded at two sessions at Maggard Studios in 1992, with three recycled from the Charlie Sizemore era and one from the early '70s with Roy Lee.

The album is not currently available on CD, which may indicate that it didn't sell well in comparison to Ralph's other releases. It is however available as a digital download.

36 minutes of a cappella, especially with fairly mediocre songs, is a tough one for me... Only Village Church Yard from Old Country Church hit's the spot.
