Here’s a blurb: My all-time favorite Gold City album has it all: two powerhouse ballads, two or three exhilarating uptempo songs, and everything in between. As far as my personal tastes go, it is perhaps the deepest recording in my collection. No less than ten songs made it into the top two categories below. Jay Parrack leads perhaps the most lyrically powerful song in Gold City’s discography, “Hide Me Behind the Cross”. Mark Trammell reprises a 1980s Mike LeFevre feature, “Calvary’s Hill,” and knocks it out of the park. This might be Jonathan Wilburn’s signature album, containing some of his best work on “He Said,” “When He Calls I’ll Fly Away,” and “When the Holy Ghost Shows Up”. And Tim Riley is hammering some incredible low notes throughout the whole thing. In summary, Signed Sealed Delivered is the representative album for this star-studded Gold City lineup.
Knock my socks off: Calvary’s Hill, Hide Me Behind the Cross, Signed Sealed Delivered, When the Holy Ghost Shows Up (We’ll Have Church)
Don’t skip that one: He Said, It’s Gonna Be a Good Day, When He Calls I’ll Fly Away, Mighty Army Band, My Savior’s Precious Feet, Everything You’ll Need
I could honestly do without: God Will Take Care of You
