A tribute to Rugby, VA gospel country stalwart EC Ball that's fun, stirring and warm to the soul – many tunes featuring a house band backing singers including Bonnie Prince Billy, Jolie Holland, Michael Hurley, Catherine Irwin, Jon Langford, The Handsome Family and more! Given that a house band was behind many of the tunes, there's warmth and a consistency here that puts this well above and beyond more hodge podgy tributes, well intentioned as they are – recorded in Kentucky by Palace Brother
Paul Oldham, and including guitarist Dave Bird, mandolin player Brian Manley, pedal steel player Neil Hulswede, pianist and accordian player Kirk Kiefer and others. Includes the vintage ""Introduction"" by EC Ball, ""He's My God"" sung by Dave Bird, ""John The Baptist"" sung by Bonnie Prince Billy, ""Warfare"" sung by Joe Manning, ""Jenny Jenkins"" sung by The Handsome Family, ""Whe I Get Home I'm Gonna Be Satisfied"" sung by Jon Langford, ""Beautiful Star Of Bethlehem"" sung by Bonnie Prince Billy, Dave Bird and Catherine Irwin, ""Jubilee"" sung by The Sandpaper Dolls and more.
