The Greatest Day (Noise  LP-DSP-463-274) 1972?

 

The Greatest Day seems to possess a greater number of ballads than the other albums. There are some Gaither/Crouch things (‘There’s Something About That Name’, ‘The King Is Coming’, ‘My Tribute’), but they fare much better than usual in the softly-swaying garagy electric format, as do the group’s unique versions of ‘Love Lifted Me’ and ‘Were You There?’. Still room for some noteworthy originals from Ralph, including ‘Today Might Be The Day’, ‘The Dove’, ‘If I Should Lose’ and ‘My New World’, the latter another upbeat rockabilly groove. All three of these albums are ultra scarce with miniscule pressings (my official source tells me 200 copies for the first one, 500 each for the next two) so get your Florida buds to seek these out so that you can experience one of Jesus music’s best kept secrets.   (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
