MCA Special Products' Country Gospel Favorites contains a selection of ten country-gospel highlights from the MCA/Decca vaults. The featured recordings may date from a number of different decades, but the strength of the music makes the album sound cohesive. And with featured tracks by Willie Nelson ("Tell It to Jesus"), Conway Twitty ("The Big Man Above"), Barbara Mandrell ("Swing Low Sweet Chariot"), Red Foley ("Will the Circle Be Unbroken"), Patsy Cline ("Life's Railway to Heaven," "Just a Closer Walk with Thee"), Red Sovine ("If Jesus Came to Your House"), the Jordanaires ("Just a Little Talk with Jesus"), Kitty Wells ("Dust on the Bible") and Loretta Lynn ("If I Could Hear My Mother Pray"), it's worth its budget price.
