The model of consistency when it comes to recording albums is Karen Peck & New River. If I looked back over the course of the group’s recording career, I would venture to say that KPNR had one of the twenty best albums in Southern Gospel music every year they had a new album released.
2013 is no exception with the release of Revival. Karen has a knack for choosing the right songs to fit the group’s style. Jeff Hawes is also at his vocal best on Revival.
Personal favorites from this recording include: “Finish Well”, “You Did It Anyway”, “Dancing Like Lazarus”, “Oh, Hallelujah”, “Jesus Remember Me” and “Revival”.
That changed in 2013 with the release of Redeeming The Time. The recorded song ranked 16th among the best of 2013 happens to be track #7 on Redeeming The Time; “I’ll Know I’m Home”.
Another strong Dianne Wilkinson co-write (with Jeff Crews), “I’ll Know I’m Home” hearkened this listener back to the big Arthur Rice feature I was used to hearing on a Kingdom Heir’s album.
Here is a sound clip of the Kingdom Heirs singing the #16 top recorded song of 2013, “I’ll Know I’m Home”. Enjoy!
