Clark and Chloe Lott-Grace So Amazing

Anybody who has been reading my blog for a while now knows I typically share older vintage Pentecostal music. That's not to say I do not have more current music or will never share it. But let's admit it: there's something about the old time gospel songs, isn't there?

So today I share something a bit more modern but still hearkening to the classics of the past. This album comes from 1994. This is one of the favorite treasures of my collection. The new songs presented here feel like old standards, but they are all written by Rev. Lott and his wife. Kevin McManus produced the record and no doubt his technical and musical expertise brought out the amazing results we hear here. This isn't just studio music. You can feel the Spirit of God permeate these tracks and no doubt they brought church to the recording the studio the days they recorded these songs.

If his name is not familiar, Kevin has produced countless albums for the United Pentecostal Church, but he may be most recognizable for his work with The McGruders. He has also worked with Bill and Gloria Gaither, The Melody Boys, Gold City, The Kingsmen, JD Sumner and the Stamps Quartet, among so many others. He may be to southern gospel music what George Martin was to the Beatles.

Rev. Lott is from the Calvary Tabernacle church in Trinity, TX. His roots in the district go back to the 1950's when, as a young man, he recalls placing ceiling joists in the first tabernacle at the United Pentecostal Campground in the Texas District. He also serves as a board of trustees member for the Urshan Graduate School of Theology.

Those are the few tidbits about his ministry I've been able to find online. What's less known is about his music. Is this album his first? It seems hard to believe, but who knows? If he devoted his life to the ministry instead and never recorded his songs before, that is possible. If you know of any earlier records by him, please let me know.

In the meantime, it's my delight to bring this treasure to you today. Already going on 23 years old but it's as timeless as the day it was released. Enjoy!
