Posted: (3 days ago) Albie's Note: I love this old tribute to frontier preachers written and sung by former SONS OF THE PIONEERS singer Tim Spencer. (July 13, 1908 – April 26, 1974) The circuit riding preacher [usually a Methodist, but there were Baptist and Presbyterian "circuits" as well] was a frontier figure that has never really been given his due. But that's OK... eternity will bear out his great ...

Posted: (22 days ago) Albie's Note: I first encountered the amazing artwork of Gary Zaboly back in 1997, when as a student in Bible College I checked out a great book called Texian Iliad: A Military History of the Texas Revolution [authored by Stephen L. Hardin-- great book!] from the Tempe [AZ] Public Library. To use a common modern expression--- I was blown away! I never forgot those first images, and since then ...

Posted: (20 days ago) Albie's note: I like this old recitative poem written by the great Red Foley.It's a pretty neat tribute to country doctors. I have been reading a really good ol' western-- set in AZ-- called Doc Dillahay by Paul S. Powers [which I hope to review soon] so this was very timely to me. Probably the best known recorded version was by Johnny Cash and included on his legendary 1961 concept album RIDE ...

It's called "Hi-Yo Silver", and was written by Lenny Adelson and Les Baxter. The song tells the origin story of the Lone Ranger.It was first used as the opening sequence in the pretty dang decent 1957 movie THE LONE RANGER AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD and was later used to ...

Posted: (3 days ago) Albie's note: This is another hymn that is quite modern, but very very good.Gary Duty-- the Baptist pastor whose other song "Blessed Old Book" was featured in my hymn series a while back [see it HERE if you like]-- wrote this song and sang it with his Bluegrass group SOUND DOCTRINE back in the '90s.That group seems to be disbanded now (at least I can no longer find the website) but their ...

Posted: (6 months ago) Albie's Note: This novelty song was a minor C and W chart hit for legendary cowboy singer Tex Ritter in 1964, the year I was born. It's a goofy, gloriously honest look at fleshly temptation and man's struggles therewith. The background chorus just kills me! Heh heh... I am amazed this wasn't a bigger hit for ol' Tex. Enjoy:

Posted: (6 days ago) When I was pastor at First Church, Pasadena, Bud Robinson was a member of my church. Once when he was at home for the holidays, we announced he would speak on Sunday afternoon.Those who know southern California, know that folks do not rally for a Sunday afternoon service, especially during the holiday season. But Bud Robinson never failed to draw a crowd, even in his home town.

Posted: (10 days ago) Albie's Note: Although few have heard of him today, T. DeWitt Talmage [1832-1902] was one of the most famous American preachers of the 19th century.Pastor of the huge Brooklyn Tabernacle [Presbyterian], he was in many ways the "American Spurgeon," and his written sermons are at times a marvelous mixture of eloquence and plain spoken emotion. here, in an excerpt from the 1883 sermon collection ...
