AllMusic Review by

The Statler Brothers (they’re not actual brothers -- they just sing like they are) began as a church vocal group, and while they went on to place hits on both the pop and country charts in a 45-year career, traditional church music and gospel remained at the heart of their sound and intent. For years the group hosted a variety show on TNN and would close each program by singing a gospel song around a lone piano, and this disc, the second volume of two (there are also matching DVD volumes), collects several of those intimate performances, along with a relaxed interview. It makes for a nice introduction to a vocal group that has become an American institution.
