1. The Stanley Brothers- Rank Strangers
An Old hymn written by one of the greatest hymn writers of all time Albert Brumley. Ralph and Carter Stanley harmonize like brothers should, it makes you ache, especially if you haven’t been to church in a while.

2. Bill Monroe and His Bluegrass Boys- Little Community Church
Another beauty in the harmony department. It aches and pains me to listen to this one. One of Bill Monroe’s finest moments.

3. Bob Dylan- When He Returns
A real gem that people seem to forget about, just Bob Dylan and his piano from the wonderful gospel record “Slow Train Coming”. You can really hear that Dylan is on fire on this recording.

4. Five Blind Boys Of Alabama- I Can See Everybody’s Mother
I real beauty from 1964, this great band has been performing together since 1948 forming at Talladega Blind School in Alabama. This is one of those rare tracks that can bring a man to his knees and thank the good Lord for this wonderful music.

5. Al Green- Jesus Is Waiting
From Al Green’s Call Me album, one of his best. This track is by far the best tune on the album, beautiful strings and soulful singing by Mr. Green.

6. Elvis Presley- Milky White Way
Off of Elvis’ best gospel record “His Hand In Mine”. Really nice backing vocals by the Jordanaires. Showing that Elvis still had some great performances left in the old tank back in 1960. A lot of people say that Elvis started to suck after he left Sun Records. Well let me tell you, Elvis’ album from 1956-1960 are all fantastic.

7. Flatt and Scruggs- Take Me In A Lifeboat
A great early track by one of greatest bluegrass bands of all time. It’s a nice fast one that can make you a really happy person on a lonesome Sunday morning.

8. Johnny Cash- Lead Me Gently Home
From 1958, a real beauty from one of the greatest gospel country singers of all time. It comes from the album “Hymns”. It’s a very short album, but very good.

9. Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers- Steal Away
Before Sam Cooke went pop he led a wonderful gospel group the Soul Stirrers. They have a lot of great tunes, but “Steal Away” is one of the best.

10. The Staple Singers- Let Me Ride
Old Pops really shows his guitar skills on this one. Parliament/Funkadelic later did a nice cover of this tune, but there ain’t nothing better than the Staples version of this old black gospel hymn.
