SANDRA LEE KRUEGER, VERN & HAROLD KREIN
When We Meet Again
Nine One One - This Heart Of Mine - This Heart Of Mine - Loves Gonna Get You - When We Meet Again - IW onder If You're Sorry Now - Sittin' Round The Campfire
This very very interesting and well done CD is the creation of Sandra Lee Krueger who makes her home in Bismarck, North Dakota. She wrote these wonderful songs about the return of Jesus Christ. It's a very personal testimony. She sings of the disaster that faces planet earth, she sings of forgiveness, she sings of love, she's sings of meeting loved ones of the past, she sings of sitting around a campfire discussing these kind of topics. It's a down-to-earth philosophical observation of the 'times' as we know them. What's also kind of interesting to me is that Sandra wrote these songs way back in 1996, 1997, and 2002. That's quite a time span back in time, yet each and every one of these songs are very meaningful in their messages. I was very impressed with the backing musicians, Gordon Mote on piano who made it sound nice and old-timey; Eric Horner on guitar, mandolin, banjo, and bass (all of them effective and beautiful); Jim Tace on drums, just right. Vern and Harold Krueger are the harmony singers that make each harmony passage so interesting to listen to. Super nice album for me to listen to on the Saturday of Easter weekend. This is a truly enjoyable recording of down-home honesty, spirituality, and sincerity. Nice writing Sandra, and I find it a very nice listening experience. I shall forward it to the Rural Roots Music Commission and see what they might like in this lovely old-time 'round the campfire' kind of spiritual music.
