    Eddy Arnold: When It’s Round-Up Time in Heaven—The Great Gospel Recordings CD

    Eddy Arnold is no stranger to our Real Gone roster; we’ve put out his hits (Complete Original #1 Hits), his only session with Lee Hazlewood and his last session with Chet Atkins (Each Road I Take—The 1970 Lee Hazlewood & Chet Atkins Sessions) and his holiday sides (The Complete RCA Victor Christmas Recordings). But there remains one aspect of his remarkable career that we have yet to address: his inspirational recordings. And it’s an important one; his first non-45 release was a box (Eddy Arnold’s Sacred Songs) containing three seven inches of spirituals, and he recorded a number of religious-themed records for RCA. We’ve snagged two of the best for this 20-track compilation: 1954’s When It’s Round-Up Time in Heaven and 1963’s Faithfully Yours. These two beautifully-recorded albums have been remastered by Maria Triana at Battery Studios in New York, and come with notes by Joe Marchese examining the role religion played in Eddy’s life and in his art. Sure to uplift your soul!
