My Review Of
Common Thread
Well as I get to listen to the entire CD It just knocked my socks of (got see if I can find them) The remake of one of my all time favorites "Jesus Is Coming Soon" what powerful harmoney on this soul moving song I never thought anyone could do this song better than the orginal ver. but the Boys did and "He Did All For Me" I remember Noel Fox raddleing the window in The Bryan Steet gym when he hit the last note on this song Boy I would love to hear Richard Sterban hit That note Live Boy Howdy and "I Know" what can you say except "AWESOME" and of coure we know the great powerful work of Joe Bonsall's "The Journey" This song blesses me each time I hear it and we all need to listen closely to the Messsage on "You Don't Have To Go Home" and talk about Mr The Solid Rock Richard Sterban the low notes Richard hits on "This Little Light" as well as "I Saw The Light" its the best versions I have ever listen to and what an outstanding job Duane Allen does on Nora Lee Allen's "Keep Our World Safe" and what a message the song gives and Boy Golden does a fantastic job of "You Can't Fix It" and as for my grandfather Braddy favorite song "Amazing Grace" I wish he could hear the Boys sing it and my thoughts are of him when I hear this humbling song my mom's Favorite (She Liked The Statler Bro. Verison) "How Great Thou Art" I can't wait for her to hear the Oak Ridge Boys sing it and finally "God Will Take Care Of You" is such a reasureing a song done by The Boys and I am always amazed how Joe is does such a fantastic job singing lead on so many songs as well as Richard and William Lee do also singing lead! Well this CD is what I was hping for and much much more it really touching my soul and mens it as The Oak Ridge Boys Music has done for MANY years and all I can End with is a heart felt Thank You and God Bless The Boys
