Hidden Gems: Gold City – “Until He Comes”

This song was on Gold City’s 1996 table project Having Fun and is a ballad by Dottie Rambo (hat tip, DH).  Mark Trammell is featured on the first verse and keeps the melody through the first chorus.  The key changes and Jay Parrack takes the second verse and the melody on the second chorus until David Hill takes the lead on the last couple lines of the chorus and tag.  This is just a stunningly beautiful cut.  The verses are performed expertly, and the tag is simply perfection.  This song was good enough that it could easily have been sent to radio and been a chart hit, even if the project was “just” a table project.  This particular CD is a bit hard to find, but this song alone makes it worth seeking out.  If you’re lucky enough to have a copy, pull up track 2 and prepare to be amazed.  This is definitely a “hidden gem.”

  1. Great pick.

    It is an amazing song, possibly the best on the CD. The Rambos originally cut it in 1974 on Yours…Until He Comes.

    For over ten years, I had a radio program (Gospel Country)on the 100,000 watt Country Station WDEN in Macon, GA. Although the song was never singled, I played several songs from this cd. “Until He Comes” was my favorite song from the project. Listener response was always tremendous. Mark Trammell is outstanding on this recording.
