Description by OLDIES.com:
The legendary father of bluegrass, the late Bill Monroe, knew quite well that when the spirit moved you, the music would certainly flow. Assembled here are 10 songs that can inspire anyone to see the light. Hank Williams' ageless "I Saw The Light" is an appropriate title for this album because of its iconic stature and uplifting message. Monroe's tenor vocal work shines. Over the past year, you may have seen (and heard) a television commercial for a train route that has been making use of a classic song with a poetic view on life" "Life's Railway To Heaven."
Among the many other gems are the proverbial "Just A Little Talk With Jesus" and another traditional favorite, "Precious Memories," with its ensemble harmony. Two other vibrant works from the pen of Albert E. Brumley, often cited as one of the greatest gospel songwriters of all time, also appear "I've Found A Hiding Place" and "Jesus Hold My Hand." When you listen to this deeply-rooted, down-home inspiring music, it's astounding to note how profound an effect Monroe, a Kentucky native, had on generation after generation of fellow musicians and very receptive audiences across this great nation.
