Pick the songs for Greater Vision 20th Anniversary project
Greater Vision is coming up on their 20th anniversary. Their first concert was on December 30, 1990; they will be celebrating their 20th anniversary year from this December 30 to December 30, 2010.
On August 6 and 7, they will record a live CD, to be released on December 30. It will be recorded at Temple, Texas at their Cultural Activities Center, and will be promoted by Tony Watson and James Rhodes, the first people to schedule Greater Vision for a concert. (They have hosted a Greater Vision concert every year since.)
There will be several brand-new songs on the CD, and a number of their classics songs. They are enlisting their fans’ help in selecting the songs and have posted a poll of their twenty most popular songs. Fans can vote for their five favorites, and there is a write-in slot. In case anyone is curious, I voted for “A Pile of Crowns,” “It Means Just what it Says,” “My Name is Lazarus,” “Soon We Will See,” and a write-in, “Till the Storm Passes By.” I was slightly surprised that my write-in didn’t make the short list, since Gerald Wolfe points to it as his signature song. (Other songs not original to the group, such as “It is Well,” were on the list, so that wasn’t the issue.)
