Few singing families have made the same kind of impact our Featured Artists on this program, the Collingsworth Family, have made. They are extremely gifted musically, both vocally and instrumentally. So it was about time they put out a "best of" collection, which they now have done. In fact, "The Best of the Collingsworth Family" is a two-CD set. But these aren't simply a collection of their old recordings. They've been redone with new vocals from the family as they are today. Brooklyn, Courtney, Olivia and Phillip really appreciate not sounding "like kids," as they think they did the first time around (although they were exceptional then, too). It was interesting hearing which of their many songs were "special" to the various group members. Phil and Kim and their grown children have much for which to be thankful.
The Collingsworth Family's CD set featured on this program, "The Best of the Collingsworth Family," Volume 1 and Volume 2, are both available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call 1-800-38-MUSIC to order. You can order easily from our webstore by using the links above to go directly to this item.
