The Haire Family - A Fresh Glimpse
Producer Eddie Howard
Recorded at Makkedah Music, Greenville, SC
Rick Hendrix Company Label
The Haire Family has a real flair for doing up tempo numbers. I’d like to hear them doing more of them. A great example of this is the opening song on the CD. “Over The Edge” will have your toes tapping, yet the message of the song is still strong.
The first radio release from this project is a beautiful ballad. “Behind The Veil” will have your hands raised in worship. Switching to a strong “country” feel, “A Fresh Glimpse Of Calvary” was written by Greg Day. There is no hidden message in this song. One of my favorite songs on the CD is “There Stood Jesus”. The message of the song is one we can all identify with, as when we are accused by Satan of all our wrong doings, there stands Jesus, claiming us as one of His. Written by Rick Hendrix, “The Blood Will Lead You Home”, has a little bit of a “swing” to it. Group member Trinity Merrit shows her writing abilities on the bluegrass number “Throw Out The Lifeline.” Other songs include the Dottie Rambo classic “The Holy Hills”, “A River Runs Through It”, another Greg Day song, “I Believe”, and “You Can’t Have My Victory.”
In my opinion this is the best Haire Family recording ever. I would like to hear them be a little clearer on their vowel pronunciation, but in all, their harmony is about as good as family harmony gets.
