3:1 DVD Review: A Country Campmeeting (Three Bridges)
1. “Satan and Grandma”: Since bringing on two former Imperials members, Elliot McCoy has had the vocal talent to bring the group name back to the forefront. He needed the song. This is that song. Tenor Jeremy Hudson turns in such a strong performance that even theological nitpickers will be willing to look past the line about Grandma getting her wings. With this song, Three Bridges is back.
2. Staging: On “Cooling Water,” Three Bridges sang around a classic quartet-style microphone. It’s not something you expect from a progressive group, yet it worked brilliantly.
3. Live Band: A four-piece live band added welcome energy to an already energetic vocal presentation. The drummer, bass guitarist, and electric guitarist appear to be the same as on Palmetto State Quartet’s companion video.
:1. One thing I would change: Choir outfits. The final four songs were filmed with a choir. Many of the ladies’ necklines were low enough to concern conservative viewers.
