EMI-Capitol Special Markets' How Great Thou Art is a collection of inspirational and gospel songs Tennessee Ernie Ford recorded in 1983. These aren't necessarily bad recordings, but they do not rank among his finest, whether it's judged against his other gospel albums or his secular work. The production is a little too clean and Ford's performance is a little too mannered. Nevertheless, it's certainly listenable, and any longtime fan looking for some pleasant background music at a budget price should check this out.
