Title - 'More Songs of Inspiration' (Sony Legacy)
Artist - Jim Nabors
Jim Nabors is etched in most Americans' minds as the happy-go-lucky Gomer Pyle. For too long his finest talent has been overlooked, and this CD is a good start if you want to become familiar with Jim Nabors "The Vocalist." On the surface, this CD appears to be a companion to Mom & Dad's old Perry Como LPs. But what separates Nabors from the rest of the feelgood pack is his ability to add an unorthodox element of anger to tunes like "The Impossible Dream." That said,listen to this album with your utmost attention. Don't just put this set on as background music while doing chores. If you do,you are missing the true experience of Jim Nabor's seething baritone hiss that is the tantrum of a fed up generation! Other "songs of inspiration" include 'Born Free,' 'Bridge Over Troubled Water,' 'Ave Maria,' 'He' and amongst others both 'Holy, Holy, Holy' and 'On A Clear Day I Can See Forever.'
