CD Report: Faithful Still (Down East Boys)

  • 6 May 2020

In a world where even Southern Gospel music has veered a bit from its roots, I still enjoy traditional southern gospel male quartets. The Down East Boys are one such group. They incorporate a mixture of slow and fast songs with good quartet harmony. Of special mention are I Hear and A Story that Began at the Cross. I started this report right after Easter, and those two songs were perfect for the season.

Other songs included are: Amazing Amounts of Amazing Grace; What Love; John Saw and Wrote about It; Those Hands; Fall Like Jericho; Church of the Living God; God Will, Yes He Will; Bottom of the Basket; and Sweet Journey.

    I enjoy your record reviews.
    Yes Southern Gospel has veered far from it’s roots.
    I love Male Quartet style singing such as the Down East Boys, Gold City, and the Inspirations.
    Many love the Gaither Vocal Band, but they are too contemporary for me and they are one of the ones that are leading us away from the roots of Southern Gospel Music.
    I loved the old mixed quartets of years gone by, including The Happy Goodmans, The Hinsons, The Speers, and the Weatherford Quartet
