AllMusic Review by

Bill Anderson has had a remarkable career as a jack-of-all-trades in the entertainment world. He's been a radio DJ, sportswriter, journalist, talk show host, game show host, and for years he had a regular role in the soap opera One Life to Live. Known for his gentle singing voice and frequent spoken word narrations, Anderson also hit the country and pop charts frequently in the '60s and early '70s as a recording artist. He's done a little of everything, including gospel, as this brief set shows, featuring Anderson's gentle vocal style on several country gospel classics like "The Old Rugged Cross," "I Saw the Light," "Life's Railway to Heaven," and "Farther Along."
