Southern Gospel Website Updates

As I mentioned earlier this week, Gold City launched a new website. I returned for a second visit this week. A few questions present themselves. Why do they only post a discography back through 1984? [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link is broken and has been removed.]

They have one of the most professional websites in Southern Gospel. With that in mind, why in the world would they choose for the header a picture where the tenor’s eyes are nearly closed and the lead singer (who is also the most senior member) is standing so far back that he appears to be in the background, fading off into the distance? [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link is broken and has been removed.]

Let’s turn our attention to another website. Legacy Five’s website is finally back up, but only if you know the password. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link is broken and has been removed.] It is possible to work around this if you close the password box and click on a page quickly before the page opens back up, but even then it’s a major irritation. Some of the pages are up (i.e., schedule, which was what I wanted to check, and photos), but others (i.e., store, which I also wanted to check out) do not work.

The Mark Trammell Trio has posted more NQC photos of appearances by their group and by the Perrys (with Nick Trammell). Eric Phillips’ impressive ability to hit super-high notes without the slightest appearance of strain is demonstrated in this picture. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link is broken and has been removed.] (One does wonder why he would have brought a cell phone on the stage with him…it is improbable that he would have answered it in the middle of an appearance, and it is equally improbable he would have brought it on just because he looks better wearing one!)

Finally, The Perrys are preparing a new site design, but they do have a new welcome screen while that is in the works.
