Meet Me There

I’m SOOOOO excited.  I’ve been looking for this song for so long…a couple of decades, really  I’ve Googled the lyrics a zillion times (“If you miss me from singing down here; come on up to heaven, I’ll be waiting up there.”) and NEVER found the song, until today.

This song was one one of the very first gospel albums I bought in 1985, James Cleveland and The Gospel Workshop of America – Live in Atlanta, 1984.  (I just stumbled on the song list this afternoon after all these years) All of the songs on that double album were dear to me, but this one always stayed with me. Written by a young Donald Lawrence, and complimented by the beautiful lead by Robin Rowe, I present to you, “Meet Me There”.

A Song In The Midst Of The Storm

You can always count on James Cleveland and The GMWA Mass Choir to offer up a great song.  Looks like I’m a day late posting this song, but it’s still great, storm or no storm.  This cut is from the 1985 Live recording from Madison Square Garden in New York City.

A Man Called Jesus

Before I lose power AGAIN, I’m going to slip in today’s post, a great song from The Mt. Pasgah A.M.E Church in Jersey City, NJ from back in the 70’s. Not the finest recording, but good, real deal gospel.

My Redeemer Lives

Sorry about not posting more recently, but I’m still without cable or internet at my house; I’m using my iPhone as a hotspot to connect my iMac to the internet to make this post.

This is a fun song only because I’m not sure I know of any other Doo-Wop gospel group. This sounds like it’s right off a doorstep somewhere in Passaic New Jersey in the late  50’s, early 60’s. Actually, this group may have been from Memphis Tennessee and an offshoot of Booker T and The MGs.  What-ever, its a different kind of gospel song for sure.

Any Day Now

A wonderfully simple ballad like song from Ricky Dillard and New G (The New Generation Chorale). Dillard is know for his faster, uptempo songs and the big sound New G can produce. (Jesus Is His Name, Every Knee Shall Bow, etc). This is a much mellow song that just seems to get into you and stay with you. This is a “keeper”. Bebe Winans helps out the verse as well.

Jesus Promised

My new most favorite song; can’t get it out of my head.  I love everything about it; the tenor entry, the women’s response on “Jesus promised, He’ll take care of me”, the three part bridge, the vamp…its all so….sassy.
