    I’m so pumped for the release of this new Fanny Crosby CD. Definitely getting it if I’m impressed by enough samples.

      I’m very intrigued by it as well. Anything that has Michael Farren’s hands in it is bound to be good. I received a review copy of it last week but haven’t had a chance to listen yet.
