Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver: Heaven's Joy Await

Lord I've Been A Hard Working Pilgrim
I Know I'll Feel At Home
Climbing Up The Mountain
Heaven's Joy Awaits
Will Someone Be Waiting
Must Jesus Bear The Cross Alone
Help Me Lord To Stand
Ezekiel Saw The Wheel
Beyond The Sunset For Me
Won't It Be A Happy Meeting
Let Me Go Home
How Long

Doyle Lawson was born in Tennessee. His dad sang in a gospel quartet so he grew up surrounded by music. In his teens he was already a skilled guitar, mandolin and banjo player, but focused on the mandolin. During the early years of his professional career he played with Jimmy Martin's Sunny Mountain Boys, J.D. Crowe's Kentucky Mountain Boys and recorded with Red Allen. From 1971 until 1979 he was a member of the Country Gentlemen and recorded ten albums with them. In l979 he formed Quicksilver with whom he has recorded ever since. On each of their albums they would sing one or two a cappella quartet gospel songs and were such fine harmony singers that, in 1988, they recorded one whole album of them. This CD exemplifies the tradition which passed from shape note singing through country quartets such as the Chestnut Grove Quartet to the Bluegrass bands via Ralph Stanley. Oh, they're great harmony singers, too!
