Southern Gospel Tidbits

goodmans1982chosenmaxDID YOU KNOW?:  The Goodmans 1982 album, Chosen, is regarded by this writer to be the best recording in the entire (Happy) Goodmans discography.  The vocal line-up of Rusty Goodman, Sam Goodman, Tanya Goodman Sykes and Michael English created a masterpiece.  Southern Gospel radio must have agreed because on the July 1983 Singing News top 40 chart, four songs from that album were charted in the top 40.

  • #6 – “The Cloud He’s Coming Back On”
  • #8 – “Look For Me”
  • #18 – “The Message Of His Coming”
  • #23 – “Somebody Prayed For Me”

**Speaking of radio charts; I am looking for Singing News top 40 charts for the years 1979, 1980, 1981 and 1982.  Any help would be appreciated.  Email me at swea215@yahoo.com.

  1. One of the greatest albums ever. I can’t figure out why that group didn’t last and the Goodmans disbanded. I thought I remember hearing people say they weren’t accepted without Howard and Vestal and as traditional of a sound. If the charts were any indicator, looks like that was bound to change!
