Taking their cue from the family singing groups of the 1930s, brothers Ira and Charlie Louvin updated this sound in the late forties and fifties to become one the greatest duos in the history of country music. Performing with the Grand Old Opry beginning in 1955 (where they stayed until 1963), this period marked the high point of their career. During this period they recorded numerous sides, and this 1958 album of pure gospel is one of their best, and also best-known due largely to the album’s over the top artwork and title. But although the album’s artwork is playful (in fact, the Brothers almost burned themselves setting it up), the message is heartfelt and you don’t have to be a believer to appreciate the quality of the music contained within.
