Bill Monroe & His Blue Grass Boys | The Gospel Spirit
16 Classic Gospel Sides...The original '50s recordings. Includes: "I'm Working On A Building" & "I Saw The Light".
Throughout his career, Bill Monroe - The Father of Bluegrass Music - recorded and wrote religious and inspirational songs, and many became a permanent part of his lore. This compilation represents the best of his gospel recordings of the 1950s. This, the first decade Bill Monroe recorded for Decca Records, was a particularly fertile time for the artist and group. His band often included fellow legends Carter Stanley and Jimmy Martin, and Monroe & His Blue Grass Boys recorded the originals of many of the classics now closely associated with him, including "I'm Working On A Building", "A Voice From On High" and the title track and others from his one gospel album from the ear, I Saw The Light.
