I just love this album! It is the best hymn album ever and you just play it over and over. There is no other "How Great Thou Art" ever recorded. Alan Jackson has keeps the faith and is a great patriot.

Also Good Memories

on 3/1/2006

This album is good soul searching toe tapping experience. Reminding me of the old gospel hymns I grew up with, also in a small country church in Georgia. We still sing them! Alan Jackson has been blessed with a wonderful voice that can sing any kind of music. Hearing that he made this alubm for his mom makes it even more special.

Beautifully produced spiritual hymns

Alan Jackson -- ever the country music classicist -- restores two traditions at once, offering an album of faith while at the same time paring his accompaniment to an earthier acoustically-inclined core. This collection of fifteen hymns draws its power entirely from Jackson's commitment and the songs' timeless qualities, forgoing any calculated commercial intentions. Originally recorded as a personal gift to Jackson's mother, the album's public release has brought an unexpected dividend, debuting at #1 on the country album chart, while simultaneously topping Billboard's Christian album chart and landing at #4 on Billboard's album chart. CD buyers are tapping into the heartfelt, private nature of the performances, with Jackson's voice and his harmony singers strikingly framed by gentle arrangements of acoustic guitar, piano and organ. The material rings with the familiarity of regular worship services, and will be dear to those raised in the faith; those who spent their Sundays elsewhere will find inspiration in these classic songs. One might be inclined to think of these performances as a family living-room sing, were the family not so unusually talented. Still, the spare arrangements and Jackson's devotion allow the songs to take center stage, with the singer's luminous talent providing the halo. [©2006 redtunictroll at hotmail dot com]

Product Overview

Precious Memories is an album with roots as deep as the southern town where Alan grew up, where life lessons were learned, and where a "hymn" was more than a song; it was a way of life. A touching and heartwarming album, Alan re-creates 15 of the most treasured hymns as a special gift to his mother, including "Blessed Assurance," "When We All Get To Heaven," "I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With you," and more.
