The budget disc Amen collects 12 tracks emphasizing the gospel direction and smooth harmonies of the Statler Brothers. These songs are culled from the second era of Statlers recordings featuring Jimmy Fortune, the high tenor who took the place of original member Lew DeWitt, who passed away in 1990. Highlights include "I Should Have Known You, Lord," "It Might Be Jesus," "God Saw My Need," and "Jesus Living Next to Me," along with the Louvin Brothers-penned "Keep Your Eyes On Jesus" and "He's Gettin' Me Ready," written by Fortune.
