Album Review by Craig Baguley
(*** out of 5)
'A collection of gospel songs from one of the greatest voices in country.
Five of the ten cuts are written by one Bobbie Joyce Harris Bost (Saturday 10 February 1940 - Saturday 6 April 2002), whom I know not, and they're pretty much standard fare with 'Shine From The Mountain' particularly nice.
'Amazing Grace' is given a lengthy, almost slumberous reading, with veteran Buddy Emmons (Wednesday 27 January 1937 - Wednesday 29 July 2015) lightly sweeping the strings.
Throughout, Watson gives a gentle performance on a workmanlike album'.
