Ten On Ten (Redux) – Nelons

NelonsThis week the ten on ten (redux) will re-visit the Nelons. On September 19th, 2011 I presented the original ten on ten feature for the Nelons highlighting the group’s ten best albums. Since that time, the Nelons released Come On Home (2012), An Evening In December (2012) and Hymns: The A Cappella Sessions (2014).  While one of the albums got close, none of the three changed the original top ten list.  This redux feature will now shine the spotlight on the three lowest ranking albums of the group’s career thus far.  First, the original list highlighting the Nelons ten best recordings.

  1. Get Ready (1988)
  2. Thanks (1987)
  3. We Shall Behold The King (1983)
  4. Let The Redeemed Say So (1989)
  5. Live (1978)
  6. United For Christ (2002)
  7. nelons2008youaregodmaxIn One Accord (1985)
  8. Expressions Of Love (1980)
  9. The Sun’s Coming Up (1977)
  10. A New Generation (1991)

The lowest ranked albums in the Nelons discography are as follows:

  1. We’ve Got To Praise Him (1997)
  2. You Are God (2008)
  3. I’ve Never Been This Homesick Before (1978)

***One disclaimer in ranking an artists best albums to come up with albums at the bottom of the list.  I do not include all the budget recordings an artist may have recorded during their career***

  1. I’m pretty sure I’ve Never Been This Homesick Before was a table project.
    And I’ve always thought Triumphant was their worst.

      1. Yeh, there were 5-6 of them from that era listed on RNS records. Peace Within The Walls from the Paul Lancaster/Melody Williams era was great and Beside Still Waters, not to mention the new a capella one, from the Amber era is great.
        They are overdue for a mainstream album of new material with Amber and Autumn. I think there’s one in the works. I wish Daywind would get behind them the way they do their other groups. They’re poised for greatness.
