To me, anyone that does Gospel Music is doing the ‘right’
thing.  Even the smallest bird cannot sing with the biggest of eagles,
and what I mean by that is that us simple folk who still live in rural
America might not be the next big Columbia Records hit recording
artist.   We ‘can’ be among those who carry the gospel with us wherever
we go, especially in our hearts, and true to the devotion we carry
honoring our Lord Jesus Christ.  Rick is an excellent guitarist, and his
Martin guitar is sounding extremely good in this session along side the
backing tracks.  He has also become one of our finest chromatic
harmonica players, as well as a singer and humorist.  Harriette is a
finely honed acoustic upright bass player, vocalist and humorist. 
Gospel music is readily accepted in all it’s many forms by the rural
folks of America.  The ‘realer’ the better.  We have here a good example
of what Gospel Music sounds like, in person, in a little white country
church like St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Neola, Iowa.  Perhaps some of
the endings could have been a little smoother, but the ending is not
always what is important, it’s where we start, and what we say, and in
this case, sing.  Rick did a nice job over-dubbing in the studio.  His
harmonica blends well with his guitar, and he seems to know exactly what
he’s looking for when he does this.  He either puts the chords down
first and leaves space for the additional instruments, or he simply
plays out a rhythm track and then adds both guitar and harmonica to that
in the overdub.  This CD will appear in the Germany Internet Magazine,
International Country Music, so I’m sure they will all like
“Edelweiss.”  No liner notes on who is doing the accompanying tracks,
but they are all well done  Rick & Harriette Andersen, 25142 230th
