Karen Wanley

Highly recommended.
Jimmy Payne is probably better known as the co-writer of the million selling song Woman, Woman for Gary Puckett and the Union Gap in 1967. Not true! Jimmy is a fine entertainer, too, with his musical roots firmly placed in gospel and early country music with a career spanning nearly four decades. This album shows Jimmy not only as a respected country/gospel singer but also as a fine writer. Twelve of the fourteen titles here were originally released in England in 1978 as still sound as fresh today as they did back then. Two new tracks were especially recorded for this cd - When Mama Prayed and When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder - and fit in so well you would think it was part of the original album - which goes to show what a fresh and modern feel this cd has. It offers a splendid mixture of both old and new sacred music with compositions from Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Jim Glaser and Jimmy himself providing that classic country feel. Highly recommended. KW.

A wonderful selection of old and new songs.
This is a wonderful CD. Jimmy Payne is blessed with a natural gift when it comes to delivering sacred music. I did have his gospel album on the Word label years ago and it is great to have these songs issued again - with two new titles. So refreshing and a wonderful selection of old and new songs. More please!

Beautiful Country/ Gospel
This CD has certainly re-kindled my love for good old country gospel. So relaxing when behind the wheel on a long journey. I certainly want to hear more of Jimmy's cd's.

A brilliant cd that is traditional country as it should be and was meant to be and is now the best CD that I own alongside Pieces Of Life. I want more of JIMMY PAYNE.
