Jim was a man of deep faith and a firm believer in God. This is evident in many of his poetic recitations, readings, and songs where he invoked references to God freely. He brings out his emotion, passion and feeling in his singing. I love all the enhanced selections on this CD including the selection of the readings - however, I loved my favorite one ďThe Flowers, The Sunset and the Trees" - a definite crystal clear-cut version compared to the original RCA release which was so poor and pathetic. The lyrics are so powerful and true. Jim's voice work wonders in time of pain and grief - it unquestionably lifts one up.
Thanks Larry for your untiring quest once again to soak us with another keepsake of Jimís beautiful gospel collection with new add-ons that richly sparkle in every angle.
Thanks to your team of dedicated and talented group of musicians who poured their energy on this collection tastefully remastering the tracks with the new tools of the day with added exquisite musical backings which resulted in Jimís superb voice brought forward and clear as never before.
Not too long ago I remember reading a statement from a fan of JR where he stated "that if there was ever a voice that could convert him to Christianity", it will be the voice of Jim. Wow - what a testament to a beautiful, rich baritone voice!
A truly wonderful masterpiece and a 'definite one' for your collection.
