Beverly Needs More Than Friends For This One Nov 30, 1999
OK. Crucify me! But before you do...listen to "Now That I'm Here" and "Precious King" and listen to this latest release from EMI/Dexterity Records and tell me this is her best. If you do, then you need to clear your ears again. Beverly Crawford assembles together her "friends" for a so-called live recording. Some of the songs were recorded in the studio including the lousy remake of "How I Got Over" featuring Dr. Bobby Jones. The original version from Aretha Franklin makes this one sound so elementary. The background vocals of Prince Yelder's ensemble sounds too commercial and the choice of songs are more cheesier than cheddar. "Higher In The Lord" and "I'll Never Give Up" prove just that with its one-lined verses and familiar phrases. If you are a Beverly Crawford fan, you may enjoy some things about this album such as her performances with Shirley Murdock, Melvin Williams and her very own daughter. But even her friends and family alongside Crawford on this album can compare to Beverly's earlier projects. E'nuff said.
Awesome and anointed! Great comeback! Nov 30, 1999
Beverly Crawford is back live in a whole new, great way! She has made an awesome comeback. This album is truly a modern day classic that encourages and ministers to the soul. These songs minister to the heart, like "For the Rest of My Life", "In Your Arms", "Miracles", "Higher in the Lord", and "Inhabit My Praise".
Plus, she has great duets with gospel singers Shirley Murdock, Melvin Williams, and others. Then, she has her father, Bishop Camps and her daughter Latrina (who is also anointed and talented in her own right). This album is highly recommended!
Beverly, keep on doing what you're doing for the Lord and keep doing well in Jesus' name!
Awesome Nov 30, 1999
Just wanted to add some things here:
There's no way that:
1.)Beverly Crawford's new album is below standard
2.)and it should be slept on.
First of all, opinions are fine and it shows that you care about the album at least, but how could anyone not feel AT LEAST ONE song on this CD (especially Inhabit My Praise, which really blew me away the first time I heard it)? This cd is awesome and is a throwback to the old days in gospel.
Sure, there are a few minor flaws on this album (with some lyrics and audience participation) and it's different from her previous live albums (this one fades after every song), but the reason why I'm giving it five stars because her voice (she's sangin' more than ever), the songs (yes, the songs), the idea behind this album (focusing on the family), the anointing, and even the guests makes it get 5 stars in my book! Plus, anybody can tell it's live regardless!
Sis. Crawford revives some of the old and seemingly forgotten sounds of gospel. It's like singing modern-day hymns (especially "How I Got Over). And it's been a while since I heard since a good fast-paced, hand-clapping, foot-stomping church song like "Higher In the Lord" (which, by the way, is based on the CLASSIC hymn "Higher Ground". That's why I don't understand why it's being called a song full of "one-liners".)
I say to any fan of Beverly Crawford, why not put in more reviews for her, especially if you like her music? On average, for all of her albums, she's gotten like 4 reviews, while most other gospel albums get more than that. Even with the not-so-good review below, at least that person is expressing his opinion. But let's continue to SHOW Ms. Crawford some support, not just say we have her album(s) and like them.
I also think it's beautiful for her to reunite with Dr. Jones, duet with Ms. Shirley Murdock & Mr. Melvin Williams, sing once again with her father, Bishop Walter Camps, and introduce her talented daughter, Latrina, to the fans. Plus, having Rizen to open up her recording didn't hurt one bit either.
Ms. Crawford, keep on following God and having an ear for what HE has to say to you. Thank you for returning to the roots of gospel music and may God continue to bless you. The best is yet to come for you!
