The Old Old Story is a collection of classic hymns recorded at chapels and churches to maintain an authentic, real sound. Taken from the Bowling Chapel and the Fundamental Methodist Church in Crane, MO, the album's songs represent classic hymns that have been slowly phased out of many churches looking for a newer praise sound. Producer Dale Wiley also purposefully avoided recording the songs cleanly, instead opting to include the sounds of babies crying and pages rustling and things along those lines. Anyone looking for a congregational recording of this music should give this a listen; as an added bonus, the money gained by this recording will be donated to the churches involved.
