Groups Long Overdue For A New Recording

With the Gaither Vocal Band recently announcing that they’re at work on a new album (just them, not the upcoming EHSSQ/GVB dual effort), it got me to thinking about other groups that I want another project from. Here’s some of them:
The Florida Boys- after they get a new tenor and everything calms down on the personnel end, I’d love to hear a new one from these guys!

Mercy’s Mark- it’s been a while since the 2006 release of Something’s Happening. These guys will undoubtedly keep getting better with each one, so why not go to work?

Legacy Five- Don’t really need to mention them in this list, since they’re at work on a summer project, but I just can’t wait!

Gold City- Another one I don’t need to mention, because in their SoGospelNews.com blog they mentioned a new one in the works…

Valor- This trio should just wait to see the response to their performance at NQC this year before going ahead with anything but I’d still like to hear some more.

Those are the major ones that come to mind. Hopefully they might stumble upon this humble blog and go for it!

As I’m sure most of you already know, Dr. Falwell passed away today at about 12:40 PM after being rushed to Lynchburg General Hospital. His death was caused by a cardiac event. Please be in prayer for the family and congregation at this hard time.
