Top 100: #72 King’s Gold III (Gold City & Kingsmen)

Release Year: 1994

Album Rank for Group: #2 of 3

Here’s a blurb: The third installment of the King’s Gold series was the only one that was themed.  Jim Hamill guided the double quartet through gospel music history, singing classics songs from the Statesmen, Blackwood Brothers, Inspirations, Happy Goodmans, Cathedrals, and of course, Gold City and the Kingsmen.  The album was recorded with the Renewed configuration of Gold City, soon after the addition of Jay Parrack and Mark Trammell, and also soon after the addition of Chris Collins at tenor for the Kingsmen.

Knock my socks off: The Old Ship of Zion, On the Jericho Road

Don’t skip that one: I Wouldn’t Take Nothing for My Journey Now, When I Wake Up (To Sleep No More), Step Into the Water

I could honestly do without: Looking for a City (The King’s Gold 2 version is just better)
