Top 100: #30 I Do Believe (Gaither Vocal Band)

Release Year: 2000

Album Rank for Group: #2 of 7

Here’s a blurb: The Gaither Vocal Band’s third and final studio album with the Phelps/Penrod/Lowry lineup was a blockbuster.  The are 14 tracks, covering a range of styles from golden era southern gospel to modern country and more.  Its strongest contributions are my personal favorite Vocal Band recorded performance (“Sinner Saved by Grace”) and the soaring takes on several old school quartet numbers.  This album would rank higher on my list if two or three of the weaker songs hit the cutting room floor.  But as it is, there are songs for every kind of gospel music fan, all performed by one of the greatest vocal combinations to hit this genre.

Knock my socks off: Sinner Saved by Grace, The Love of God

Don’t skip that one: On the Authority, He’s Watching Me, Oh What a Time, Hide Thou Me

I could honestly do without: Steel on Steel

    Best GVB project ever.
    “More Than Ever” is one song that MUST be sung!!! It shouldn’t be forgotton.
    I’m glad to hear that Karen Peck and New River brought it back with their latest studio project.
