Over the Next Hill (Sounding Board SJ 1020)
I suppose a site like this isn’t complete without some Southern Gospel, and this is a nice example of that from the mid-1970’s. Southern Joy was a gospel group from Greenville, SC. Performed well without too much affectation, with a lively tempo to keep your feet patting the way they should.
The songs (for individual download:
- I’m One of His Own
- Glory Road
- They That Sow in Tears
- I’ll See You in the Rapture
- I Feel Something Good is About to Happen
- Please Search the Book Again
- Something I Can Feel
- Jesus Will Never Say No
- Over The Next Hill
The group was led by Frank and Dovie Hopkins. Others who helped with the album are as follows:
- Keyboard: Steve Hanks and Otis Forrest
- Guitar: Pee Wee Melton
- Bass: John Brookshire
- Steel Guitar: Tom Dodd
- Engineer: Jesse Evatte
- Art Direction: Ron Mattox
