The Oak Ridge Boys may be best remembered for their 1980s hits "Elvira" and "Bobbie Sue," but like many country and pop singers who hailed from the Bible Belt (including Hank Williams and Elvis Presley), they were influenced heavily by gospel music.
During the mid-1960s, when this material was recorded, the Oak Ridge Boys were still firmly grounded in gospel, and THE INSPIRATIONAL COLLECTION presents a variety of devotional classics, including "My Heavenly Father Watches Over Me" and "I Wouldn't Take Nothing for My Journey Now." Glen Campbell's "Less of Me" and Rodgers & Hammerstein's "You'll Never Walk Alone" reveal both the depth and breadth of the boys' vocal abilities. This five-piece singing outfit harmonizes beautifully throughout, and they are backed by excellent studio musicians on all 18 tracks. Culled from three seminal Oak Ridge Boys albums, THE INSPIRATIONAL COLLECTION thoroughly documents the Christian roots of this highly acclaimed ensemble.
