This is a 45-song collection of "Classic Country Gospel Songs" according to the sleeve of this 3-CD set. There are certainly some classics here, and quite a few gospel songs, too, but while this is a fascinating collection, the description is misleading.

Quite a few of these tracks are great country songs, but certainly not gospel - like Kitty Wells' "I don't Claim To Be An Angel" and "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels", Gene Autry's "You Are My Sunshine" or Eddy Arnold's "It's A Sin (How I Love You)", they're plain old country songs about life and love. Even Woody Guthrie's classic "Jesus Christ" is by no means a gospel song, and I'd maintain that "Daddy Sang Bass", "Wreck On The Highway" and "Sunday Down In Tennessee", and others, aren't gospel either, though they're country songs rooted, as so many were, in the faith and background of the artists. I could go on... perhaps half of the songs here are just very good country songs.

On the other hand there's some real classic country gospel here. Listen to Patsy Cline sing "Just A Closer Walk With Thee" or Slim Whitman's "It Is No Secret", Hank WIlliams' "I Saw The Light" or the Blackwood Brothers' "I'll Fly Away", and you will throw away those generic 'Gospel' albums, these are the greats.

There are a couple of duplicates, too: "Wreck On The Highway" by Roy Acuff appears twice, though listed with two different backing groups, and so does "There's A Round-Up In The Sky", once attributed to the Sons of the Pioneers, and once to Roy Rogers (who founded the Sons of the Pioneers and was their primary soloist) -- yes, in each case it's the same track duplicated! Something tells me the compilers didn't really listen to the songs.

For all my criticisms, I picked this up and don't regret it, if only for the wonderfully eclectic mix of songs I probably wouldn't have collected otherwise. Hope you enjoy it too.
