  1. I have to choose Sweet Song of Salvation. It is one of my favorite Stamps albums. I love that line-up. Donnie had a country tone, but could sing classic gospel quartet music as well. I liked Roy McNeal better as a lead singer, but do think he did a good job as Stamps tenor. There was a youthful, contemporary sound (for that day) on Sweet Song of Salvation.
