VARIOUS ARTISTS, “A Bluegrass Gospel Songbook.” Rounder. 13 tracks.

Rounder Records has pulled 13 gospel classics from its vaults with this new collection of material recorded over the past few decades.

There’s the hard-driving “Crying Holy” by J.D. Crowe & The New South; Tony Rice’s bluesy “Wayfaring Stranger”; Phyllis Boyens’ hard-charging “Hewed Out Of The Mountain”; IIIrd Tyme Out’s a capella “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot”; Blue Highway’s a capella “Wondrous Love” and Dailey & Vincent’s a capella “Amazing Grace.”

The album also includes The Nashville Bluegrass Band’s “Gospel Plow,” Weary Hearts’ “Power In The Blood,” James King’s “Garden In The Sky,” The Grascals’ “Give Me Jesus,” the Bluegrass Album Band’s “The Model Church,” Ricky Skaggs’ “River of Jordan” and the Dry Branch Fire Squad’s “I’ll Be No Stranger.”

Good album by some of bluegrass’ top acts.
