Recording old music with new personnel
January 8, 2009 9 Comments
Turnover in groups occurs often in Southern Gospel Music. Some groups go back and record previously released material with the current lineups. This morning I had newsletters in my inbox from both The Dove Brothers and Greater Vision announcing new projects that fall along these lines. The one by The Dove Brothers is coming out in the Spring to mark their 10th Anniversary. Greater Vision’s is now available online and has songs they have recorded with previous members (Chris Allman, Mark Trammell, and Jason Waldroup) and also has a few songs they’ve never had available before.
I’ve seen this done by Gold City, The Perrys, and The Kingdom Heirs after having major changes to their group. Greater Vision also did one before called “Sing It Again!” What are some other groups you have seen do this? Is there anyone you’d like to see record one?
