This double CD was a real blessing - George's familiar voice combined with some of my favourite old time hymns - was pure nostalgic bliss!
Grandma's Favorite! Jan 3, 2007
I purchased this album at the passing of my best friend, my Grandma. George Jones was her absoloute favorite, as well as old time gospel hymns that he signgs so beautifully on this album. We played this for my Grandma's services, and it was absoloutly perfect. It brought us all joy to know that Grandma would have loved it and the sound of George's voice made us feel like she was right there. Each song brought back memories of her and my childhood. This album was not only awesome, it was a blessing.
Why me Lord? What have I ever done. Aug 28, 2006
Who else should sing these songs than someone who is seeking redemption. I don't know where Mr. Jones is in his spiritual life, but he sings these wondeful hymns with conviction. The 2 disc collection will bring a tear to your eye and a glow to your hear.
Like a Good Whiskey....Better with Age Feb 9, 2006
The urge to conpare the Possum to an old Whiskey is undeniable. He has, like a good bottle of Whiskey, aged wonderfully. The control that time has stolen from george Jone's vocal abilities, has been replaced with character. That's saying a lot for a man whose voice already had more character than pretty much any other country singer out there. These songs are done so nicely. His voice is sincere and strong, and you can feel his faith as he sings. My personal favorites are IF I Could Hear My Mother Pray Again, I'll Fly Away, Just a Little Talk With Jesus and When Mama Sang. I absolutely love this collection. I'm not an overtly religous person, and tend to keep my spirituality to myself, but found myself playing this set in my truck for several weeks straight...and doing so loudy. I made sure my mother had a set too, since she's the one who turned me on to Jones as a child some 37 years ago...one of the best things she ever did for me. If you like good old fashioned gospel songs...this will be a wonderful addition to your collection. If you're just a Possum fan...this will add some diversity to your collection. There's nothing like a sermon preached or a gospel song sung...by a reformed sinner. The relationship with the sin makes the sermon or singing that much better. This is money well spent.
Another great from a GREAT! Sep 1, 2003
I have been a fan since 1981. I've been through good times and bad times with George. This gospel album is the best. Though I am not real religious, I do admire what he is bringing to us through his music. Once you hear Precious Memories, you will be hooked. May God bless George Jones and may everyone see the light through his singing.
