DESCRIPTION:

Last year, The Primitive Quartet and Mountain Home Music Company began the Through the Years series, which is bringing the beloved gospel group’s music to new generations of listeners through streaming services and digital sales platforms for the first time. These releases continue the group’s long legacy as a bluegrass gospel artist that started in 1973.

Following Volumes 1-4 and a Christmas collection, Through the Years, Vol. 5 features “If I Could Telephone Heaven,” written by Reagan Riddle; “Walking in the Highway, written by Calvin Copeley; and “He Did a Surgery in My Heart” written by Mike Riddle. It also includes two a capella tunes, both written by Reagan Riddle: “The Fruits of the Spirit” and “He’s the Same God.”

When completed, the series—curated by the Crossroads Label Group’s Greg Bentley and The Primitive Quartet’s Mike Riddle—will encompass eight volumes covering nearly 40 years of historic releases, including the Christmas collection and a compilation of songs from the several live albums the group has released over the years. Rarely has such an archival exploration been directed exclusively at digital platforms, and the combination of historical interest and forward-looking accessibility serves to guarantee that not only will long-time fans of the storied group have their favorites close at hand, but that the vital musical ministry of the Primitive Quartet will be available for discovery by generations of fans yet to come.
