Honoring Southern Gospel’s Greatest Albums – 1960’s (#9)

downings1969shelteredmaxLast week I kicked off looking at the top ten albums of the decade of the 1960’s.  The rankings were a result of you, the readers, voting in the search for Southern Gospel’s best album series last year.  Today we are going to take a look at the album ranked 9th.

The Downings released their first three recordings in 1969.  The group would go on to spend their entire recording career with Benson recording for either the Heart Warming or Impact record labels.

The album that lands at #9 among the best Southern Gospel recordings released during the 1960’s is Sheltered In The Arms Of God.  The album contained such favorites as “Gettin Ready Today”, “I Believe What The Bible Says”, “I Will Serve Thee”, “Searching” and “Sheltered In The Arms Of God” among others.  The vocal line up on this recording was Paul Downing (bass), Ann Downing (alto), Sue Dodge (soprano) and Greg Gordon (tenor/lead).

Here is a musical montage of the album ranked #9 among the best released in the 1960’s, Sheltered In The Arms Of God.
