Classics from Cover to Cover to Cover.... Oct 6, 2003
Frankly, this is something I'm surprised other Christian artists hadn't done before. Ray Boltz takes 11 classic Christian songs from the 70's and early 80's and rerecords them. And it's a wonderful collection.
The songs alone are worth the price of the CD. He's got the familiar ("Great is the Lord from Michael W. Smith, Rich Mullins' "Awesome God," "People Need the Lord" by Steve Green, "O Lord, You're Beautiful" by Keith Green) and songs not as well known today but well known back in the day ("He's Alive" Don Francisco's signature song, "Rise Again" by Dallas Holm, "We Will Stand" by Russ Taff, "If that Isn't Love" by Dottie Rambo). Most of the time, he stays true to the original songs, just updating the arrangements slightly. There are a couple of missteps, like the drums on "He's Alive" and again on "Rise Again." But these songs don't suffer too much, and it's a minor annoyance overall.
This is a great place to get a sampling of classic Christian music or for nostalgia buffs to go and remember some classic songs.
