Treasures: He Left It All (Cathedrals)
Here’s a fascinating trip into the archives of this genre’s forgotten history, courtesy of Dean Adkins:
What makes this particularly fascinating is that the Cathedrals, to my knowledge, never recorded this song. That’s not to say the song itself was never recorded; it was written by Aaron Wilburn and recorded in 1989 on the Nelon’s Let The Redeemed Say So.
Of particular note on this rendition are that George Younce sings the same step-out lines recorded by Rex Nelon, but adds the extra “He Left It All” lines just played by the bass guitar on the original. Also notice Roger Bennett singing a fifth part at the big ending.
Does anyone know more about the song or other occasions where the Cathedrals may have recorded it?
