Ten On Ten: Revisited – Perrys

perrys2012throughthenightmaxOne of the most popular features on my old site (Southern Gospel Views from the Back Row) was the ten on ten series.  I would rank the ten best albums by Southern Gospel’s biggest artists.

All of those posts are here on Music Scribe if you ever want to go back and review.  I want to re-visit some of the artists, since the release of newer recordings.  This week re-visits the Perrys (original post HERE) and looks at the 2012 Through The Night to see if it changed my original top ten ranking.

ORIGINAL LIST:

  1. Almost Morning (2009)
  2. Changed Forever (2001)
  3. perrys2007looknofurther150Look No Further (2007)
  4. Come To The Fountain (1998)
  5. This Is The Day (2003)
  6. Come Thirsty (2006)
  7. Center Stage Live (1996)
  8. God’s Little People (1988)
  9. Crossings (1997)
  10. Blue Skies (2011)

 

NEW LIST:

  1. Almost Morning (2009)
  2. Changed Forever (2001)
  3. perrys1988godslittlepeople150Look No Further (2007)
  4. Come To The Fountain (1998)
  5. This Is The Day (2003)
  6. Through The Night (2012)
  7. Come Thirsty (2006)
  8. Center Stage Live (1996)
  9. God’s Little People (1988)
  10. Crossings (1997)

 

I ranked the Perrys, Through The Night, #1 on my annual list of the best album releases for 2012.  How did it stack up to the group’s body of work.  It claimed the #6 spot on the list of the Perrys ten best albums of their recording career.  It knocked out the 2011 album, Blue Skies (which was originally ranked #10).  Agree/disagree?

  1. Totally agree about “Through The Night”. Then when you listen to it again with all that they have been through this year……shows what Grace and Faith that they truly have! and that God was there Through the Night……Libbi and Tracy are remarkable Christian examples!!

  2. I would rank my favorites as follows. The first two are easy…3-5 are more of a toss-up.

    1. Changed Forever
    2. This Is the Day

    3. Through the Night
    4. Look No Further
    5. Almost Morning

  3. I would rank “Through the Night” either second or third among my favorite Perry’s albums. It would be behind “Almost Morning” and maybe “Look No Further”.

  4. Not in any particular order, my top 10 are:

    1-Come Thirsty
    2-Blue Skies Coming
    3-Grace
    4-God’s Little People
    5-Almost Morning
    6-This is the Day
    7-Little Thunder, Alabama Lightening
    8-Royal Descendants
    9-Life of Love
    10-Through the Night

  5. My 10 favorites:

    1. Changed Forever
    2. Almost Morning
    3. Through the Night
    4. Look No Further
    5. Come to the Fountain
    6. This Is the Day
    7. Crossings
    8. God’s Little People
    9. Center Stage Live!
    10. Little Thunder, Live in Alabama

    I actually wish the Perrys would get back to that recording style they used for Changed Forever. That was some of the clearest and finest vocals & arrangements from the current vocal format (3 men + 1 lady).
