It was also wonderful to read and know the background details of these gems - on how these were written, sung and recorded. Thanks to Sara for all her hard work and research into the background facts of these songs.
The clarity of Jim's voice comes alive and stands out in the collection without a doubt. This masterpiece is also filled with tasteful new musical settings that showcase this great artist, not to forget the handsome color pic on the cover of the silver case and the overall range and selection of the music. I loved all the CDs however, my favorites were the Narrations, the Gospel and the Nashville Sound. The gospel songs, in particular envelopes his view of God and the intensity of his faith which in turn gave him a great sense of strength. His dramatic voice in the Gospel songs touches deeply in times of pain and grief.
Thanks Larry for this latest wonderful amazing work you just released and for continuing to keep Jim's legacy alive. Thanks to all those who participated to give this new life to all his recordings.
There is no words to describe the sound quality of this CD and as you said Larry "Hearing Jim talk was almost as enjoyable as listening to him sing." It is so true. This CD set is a gem - a keepsake for years to come and I would urge all JR fans to obtain this collection.
