Mourine Hensley - Sheltered in the Arms of God

LPS 184

Another surprise find! This album rocked all the way through. Amazing strong, clear and honest vocals from Mourine and her daughter Euna. The tracks are spiced up with nice guitar and piano work. Someone (probably the engineer, Rusty York) decided to experiment and run the violin through reverb and well as experiment with the stereo mix on a few tracks. That effect really iced the cake on those tracks.

Musicians include: Junior Bennett, Charles Helton (Mourine's brother), Dennis Hensley (her husband?), Gene Lawson, Denny Rice and Ray Wilson.
