There’s no doubt about it, I’m a good listener to anything
gospel that is made for and reflects the teaching of our Lord and
Savior, Jesus Christ.  Reg Benoit is a Canadian with a penchant for
country music, but the first song on this CD leans pretty heavily to
electric guitar rock and roll, but still, it’s a darn good song. This
delightful CD is dedicated to the memory of pastor Victor Marskell and
his dear wife Mary Marksell as wll as to Reg Benoit’s parents, Bart and
Lucy Benoit, with a special mention to Bertha Aube.  I like an artist
who takes the time to ‘dedicate’ some of his gift of music to those he
loves and cares for.  That’s what the teachings of Christ is all about. 
Sharing, caring, and certainly recognizing the needs of others.  By the
time Reg gets to the ‘Family Bible” I’m all set to hear some good
traditional country gospel, and sure enough he delivers.  This great
Claude Gray song has stood the test of time, and Claude still performs
it at all of his concerts, the last one at our own little Oak Tree
Performance Center in Anita, Iowa.  In Reg Benoit’s version, his voice
resonates, he means the words he’s singing, and the harmony parts really
sound good.  Reg has a very pleasant and likable voice, so that makes
listening to him sing a pleasant experience.  Reg has been playing music
since 1961, and he has been an active pastor for the past seven years,
going to Ambassador University for his education.  He’s held a number of
jobs, but he also plays a number of musical instruments, all of them
quite well.  It’s a super good CD.  Reg has been entertaining Canadians
for a long time with his gift of music, and my guess is he will continue
to do this for a long time.  I received this CD from my friend in
Newfoundland, Michael T Wall.  Good CD, off it goes to the Rural Roots
Music Commission  for their listening pleasure.
