Here are some reviews of the CD by some people you may have heard of:
“Revival Ridge” headed up by Paul Estep along with son Jonathan, Billy Morgan, and Ron Cornett provides you with great Bluegrass Gospel entertainment along with the Gospel Message on their sophomore CD entitled “They Need Jesus” . Tight harmonies and solid traditional pickin’ does them proud, and this CD is a great one to choose for your own personal listening pleasure. Along with inspiring originals, the band has worked up their arrangements – to be fresh and exciting. Hot off the press and available now – and remember you heard it here first! They are going to be around for a long time on the Bluegrass Circuit! ~ Gracie Muldoon: The WWB WorldWideBluegrass.com
Revival Ridge’s new CD “They need Jesus” is a pleasure and a relaxiation to the ears. The CD has a few Bluegrass Gospel Classics, some brand new material, and there is even a southern gospel song that has been converted over. The choice of songs is tremendous in the fact that they all point to a better life in Christ. The harmonies are excellent. The picking is what makes this CD stand out above the normal group. For the length of time this group has been together they all play like they have been together forever. The sound is crisp, and the timing is perfect. Put all this together, and I believe they will be around for a long time. ~ John Lockaby: Foothills Foundation Ministries and The Gospel Bluegrass Headquarters
