    How 'bout some classics?

    Sunday's Child(1987) - Phil Keaggy - Not sure if it gets better than this.

    The Way Home(1989) - Russ Taff - Solid Bluesy Gospel Rock

    Thirst (1998) - Randy Stonehill - Hard to pick one album; I love all his stuff. Stonehill is my favorite living artist and doesn't make bad albums. or bad songs. ever. So many of his songs feel as if they are written just for me and thats why I like it so much.

    Russ Taff - Medals, an oldie but a goodie, he was more rock then than blues as he is now.

    Casting Crowns - they have 2 CDs out, both great...

    Phil Keagey - Crimson and Blue - if you like guitar you will love this...

    Jeremy Camp - Restored... all great singles, and he can pick too!

    Steven Curtis Chapman - The Great Adventure

    Degarmo and Key - early rock, get the greatest hits album...

    and if you like Pop/Rap/Hip Hop
    Toby Mac - Diverse City, although "Momentum" is good too.

    Danny Flowers - Tools For The Soul
    From the guy who wrote "Tulsa Time", an album that obviously covers a time of transition and coming to the Lord, produced by former Big and Rich and Delbert McClinton sideman James Pennebaker, a heck of a picker and brother in his own right. It'll bless you and make you want to play at the same time.

    Buddy Miller - United Universal House of Prayer
    Do they get any funkier than Buddy Miller? I don't think so.

    Mike Farris - Salvation in Lights
    From the former lead singer of the Screaming Cheetah Wheelies, it's less of a guitar record and more of a celebration. Like the end of a New Orleans Jazz Funeral. I've never heard "Precious Lord" done in a manner other than a slow dirge until this. Gotta love it.

    Gosh, how I wish you could hear some of this stuff on Christian radio - or any radio for that matter!!

    Anything Todd Agnew.
    Building 429
    or Skillet
    These groups are not mainline, and have great players.
    Mostly they ROCK

    We all have been through the not so good players, and I am one of them. We must however hope that the Lord looks at the heart, help those of us that are not that great to find a place to make a Joyful Noise. If this was, after all, about me, the pews would soon be empty.
    We don't play much of those groups I mentioned, but that is what I listen to outside the building.

    I'm an old geezer from Florida, and was raised on Southern Gospel music, mostly

    1. Any CD by the Gaither Vocal Band is tops with me. (Enjoy the ones when Mark Lowrey was with them the most.)
    2. David Phelps -This self titled CD has some great music, with No More Night, and End of the Beginning my two favorites from that CD. Check him out on youtube. I can't seem to get it to embed.
    3. I'll have to get back with you on #3, I'm having an "old timers moment and can't remember the group. :)

    Phil Keaggy- Love Broke Through
    Randy Stonehill- Welcome to Paradise
    Larry Norman- In Another Land

    Those albums got me through a really tough year of my life. I still have the vinyl and break them out occasionally.

    that was my first thought, as well.

    I really go for the old gospel-ish bluegrass stuff. man, they'd probably welcome that stuff in my church, too, if there was somebody here to do it.

    All those guys made recordings peppered with spiritual numbers but there are collections where the tunes are collected like concentrate:

    Stanley Brothers - 16 Greatest Gospel Hits
    Louvin Brothers - 20 Greatest Gospel Hits
    Bill Monroe - The Gospel Spirit
    Flatt & Scruggs - Foggy Mountain Gospel: The Complete Columbia Gospel Recordings
    etc ...

    Some classics there. Is "Love Broke Through" the old Keith Green tune?

    When I go for "Christian" music, it tends to be music by Christians more than P/W. That said, Vigilantes of Love, Kaiser/Mansfield, and Robert Randolph are favorites artists. You can't really go wrong there.

    ,,, Glenn has been at it for 35 years and covered a number of different genres in the Gospel theme,, I like his Blues and Blues/Rock the best. This is some good stuff.

    Marty Stuart & the Fabulous Superlatives "Soul's Chapel"
    Bob Dylan "Slow Train Coming"
    Larry Norman "Something New Under the Sun" (the gospel equivalent of 'Exile on Main St.)
    And, yes, any of the many Stanley Brothers gospel albums (I read they recorded more gospel albums than non-gospel) or pre-Stax Staple Singers.

    Most "CCM" makes we want to gouge my ears out,the plastic pop and the Pro-Tooled alterna-rock sounds alike. In the words of Hank Hill,"You know, you're not making Christianity better, you're just making rock & roll worse. I like the above 3 albums because they have some grit.
