CD Rated: Gerald Sweatman (Still Singing)

Rating: 2 1/2 Stars

Producer: Eddie Crook
Label: Morningstar Signature

Song Titles: “I Want To Be Working,” “I Can’t Imagine Life Without Him,” “Already Ready,” “Jesus Pilots My Ship,” “He’s God,” “What I’m Longing For,” “I Still Believe In The Old Time Way,” “A Talk With The Master,” “If You Think I’m A Little Excited,” and “God Can Save Anybody, Anywhere, Anytime”

Still Singing collects ten songs written and recorded by Gerald Sweatman. It’s always interesting to hear a songwriter interpret his own songs, especially when you’re already familiar with other versions of those songs. One lyric most of you are likely to recognize is “God Can Save Anybody, Anywhere, Anytime,” which the Kingsmen Quartet recorded last year. Called Out Quartet provides background vocals throughout this recording. I always try my best to be honest about CDs such as this…I highly doubt Sweatman will be getting a call any time soon to sing lead for a major gospel group. Still Singing is a great advertisement for his songwriting skills. As such, it’s a CD of quality, but I believe you’re generally going to prefer to hear his songs when you have the option of hearing someone else sing them. If you’re an artist, producer or someone else in a position of selecting songs to be recorded, you should definitely check out this CD. If you are a fan who focuses more on lyrics than on singing style when you listen to a CD, you may also be interested in this recording. The rest of you will likely want to pass.
