Unlike many releases in the K-Tel catalog, Songs of Praise is not front-loaded with lackluster re-recordings of time-honored favorites. Only six of its songs were re-recorded, with the remaining ten existing in their original form. The set is dominated by soulful, reverent favorites like Frankie Laine's "I Believe" and "Amazing Grace" from Lee Greenwood; best might be a version of "Morning Has Broken" by Acker Bilk that's as crisp as the morning dew.
