Allyn Anderson is a kind of country folk singer
songwriter.  This particular work is him and his acoustic guitar.  Allyn
has a very gifted voice, easy to listen to and easy to understand.  He
writes a lot here about his relationship with Jesus Christ, the savior
of all of us who give our souls to him without regard or regret.  Allyn
makes that point more than satisfactorily.  Belief is all it takes in a
relationship with Christ, and Allyn makes that pointedly clear as well.
His gentle voice tells us about Jesus.  All of the songs are originals
by Allyn, one in particular I like is “The Planet Anderson” in which he
reveals how he was brought up in the Lutheran church, how to be a good
Christian, and make it well known what a Christian is.  Along with his
very gifted voice, Allyn is a very accomplished acoustic guitarist. 
Because our old-time music festival is acoustic and open to all kinds of
musical genres, country, bluegrass, ragtime, even folk music, Allyn
‘fits in’ really well way.  He’s always a very gracious participant, and
helps us in many of our needs.  We especially appreciate his songs and
music, much like we hear it on this CD.  According to his own liner
notes, this CD project of 14 original songs is dedicated to his loving
parents Mel and Lois Anderson, the Fulton Lutheran Church for giving him
a strong faith foundation, his brother Gary, his sisters Sandy and
Sharon for putting up with him, and his loving wife Eileen for all her
support and being his number one fan, all of them from the planet
Anderson.  I especially like Allyn’s original songs about his
relationship with Jesus.  We live in a very unusual time on planet
earth.  There are so many strange things happening on our bigger planet,
so much violence, harsh words, a loss of morals in America, demands
from minorities that we’ve never had to deal with before, and certainly a
harsh unhealthy atmosphere without Jesus.  Allyn brings all of this
into focus, and it is a good spiritual lesson for all of us, especially
those that are true Jesus fans and souls.  Allyn makes it all easier to
understand, his words speak truthfully, the only way one can be in
cadence with our Lord Jesus Christ.  Terrific job Allyn, keep it up,
share whenever and wherever you find the opportunity.  The opportunity
isn’t always what we expect, but knowing the road you are on, it is the
Lord Jesus Christ who will guide you on this wonderful journey. Off this
beautiful acoustic musical CD goes to the Rural Roots Music
Commission.  Thank you Allyn for making a Saturday my Sunday.
