REVIEW: The Inspirations – Right Where He Is
Producer: Jeff Collins
Record Label: Horizon Records/Crossroads Music Group
Many of you know that I work with all genres of Christian music and I find the good in all of it with rare exceptions. As long as they are sharing real life and Jesus and the hope we have in Him, then bring it on. I absolutely love Southern Gospel and I do have my favorites, I love great traditional Southern Gospel. So when I was asked to review the latest from the legendary and consistent INSPIRATIONS, I was a little hesitant and nervous, just because how do you review one of the longest running groups and one that is known for simple, great Southern Gospel music. Well I have now listened to their latest recording RIGHT WHERE HE IS, and honestly it is one of their best yet. The vocals, songs and production are top notch.
The Inspirations shine with over 50 years of staying true to who they are and loving and sharing music with their very loyal audience.
The project starts off with a fabulous song called He’s Coming Again and it is the promise for all of us, that He is going to come back. Great opener song and it sets the pace for the project that is full of songs that offer hope and assurance for all of us.
A few of my favorites are THERE’LL NEVER BE A GIANT, a fun song about David and Goliath…THAT’S RIGHT WHERE HE’LL BE (the first single to radio) and it’s a feel good song that is sure to get you going. I absolutely love the writing of Sandy Knight and she has written one of my new favorites, and The Inspirations dress it up really good. WOULDN’T CHANGE THE END, and it’s a beautiful comparison about the stages of life we all experience to the pages of a book reminding us that at the end of our life, Heaven is waiting.
Great collection by a wonderful group that still is doing what they have been called to do. Share the message with great Southern Gospel Music. This project is a must have for those traditional fans, but it’s also one that all of us need to listen to and you will enjoy it.
HE’S COMING AGAIN
THERE’LL NEVER BE A GIANT
LORD I WANT TO BE A BLESSING
WOULDN’T CHANGE THE END
SHE GETS ANOTHER PRAYER THROUGH AGAIN
HIS HAND REACHED FURTHER DOWN
OBEY THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD
THAT’S RIGHT WHERE HE’LL BE
THE END OF TIME IS NEAR
