Pick one Greater Vision recording…
A friend mentioned the other day that she thought Everyday People, Greater Vision’s last A-list recording with Jason Waldroup, represented the peak or culimation of Greater Vision’s sound during Waldroup’s time with the group.
I didn’t say anything at the time, but that comment got me thinking. What was Greater Vision’s best recording during their Waldroup years? And (if the answer is any different), what recording would you point to as the culmination of that era?
It was easy for me to narrow it down to three finalists: Live at First Baptist Atlanta (2002), Quartets (2003), and Hymns of the Ages (2006).
Mainly since it’s the last of the three, I’d point to Hymns of the Ages as the culmination. Every track on the project is fully orchestrated and arranged perfectly for the three voices; the project really doesn’t have a single dud track.
It would be a harder call for me to say which I think is the best of the three.
What do you think? What was Greater Vision’s best recording during their Waldroup years? And what recording was the culmination of that era?
