This CD is a veritable classic of all time! Johnny's velvet voice, with all the spiritual passion behind it--a rare treat to find. I had this album years ago but gave up my turntable, so it is wonderful to revisit these powerful songs. My favorite is "One God", which affirms that we can't all claim "My God's better than your God" because there is just one creator, a belief that is dear to my heart. This song was ahead of its time, popular before Unitarianism and eastern philosophy became so widespread with westerners. His rendition of "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" will vibrate deep in your heart. And the title cut,"Good Night, Dear Lord", is all about having daily gratitude, a wonderful affirmation. Perhaps the most soulful song for me is "Deep River", which never ceases to amaze and tug at my heartstrings. "Eli Eli" and "Kol Nidre" is bound to strike a special chord for people of the Jewish faith, while Catholics can match Johnny's "Ave Maria" with the best of the best they've ever heard sing this song, and it might just step into the favorite position. Though I cite that these songs will have a great deal of meaning for people of particular religions, I find this collection to be non-dogmatic and in a sense, non-denominational. They just are a straight shot to the heart and to the spirit, and that's the way I like it. Johnny's voice and amazing range is delicious to my ears, my heart, and my soul. His high notes are pristine, his bass notes are so emotion-stirring. The orchestral arrangements by Percy Faith provide a beautiful frame for this masterpiece. If you can find this collection, buy it, and I think you will take much delight in it.
