Paul and Pap’s New CD – Track 9

Shepherd of My Soul by Jerry and Paul Wilson
Last Sunday I told you about Paul and Pap’s new cd Shepherd of my Soul.  As I mentioned last week, the cd contains 13 original songs written by Pap, 1 written by Paul, 3 gospel standards, and one Instrumental Reprise of the first song on the cd. Today I’m going to share one of the standards with you.

The Gloryland Way has always been one of my favorite gospel songs. I just love the peppy optimism that runs throughout the song. I wrote about it way back when I first started the Blind Pig and then re-published the post in 2013. If you’d like to see the post, which includes a live version of Pap and Paul singing The Gloryland Way go here.

A big THANK YOU to everyone who has already bought a cd. If you’re interested in purchasing a cd you can buy one directly from me (go here for the details) or jump over to my the Blind Pig and The Acorn Etsy shop and pick one up there.

    After listening to The Gloryland Way through the blog, our rag-tag group learned it and it is now a staple at our services Sunday mornings and when we play for the neighborhood nursing home. The uplifting spirit of that song will get some of the residents clapping their hands and tapping their feet; and, occasionally, a smile flits across their faces even though they are in times we are unfamiliar with.

    I think “Shepherd of My Soul” is the best song Pap has ever written.
    I’ve listened to the CD over and over and I just love it. I ain’t never figured out how Pap knows what the tune should sound like while writing the songs and there’s been many of them.
    I really enjoyed “Gloryland Way” today, such clarity when singing is really what makes it so nice. Everyone did their part just right…Ken

    This is the first time I’ve heard “The Gloryland Way.” I love gospel music, and this is peppy and upbeat. The harmony and guitar are amazing, and listening to this piece has brightened my day.

    Tipper, Just listened to The Gloryland Way and as always I love the song. Paul and Pap did a great job singing it. I’m leaving for church and just had time to listen to it before I left. I remember this song from when I was very young and spending a couple of weeks down South with my grandparents. Thanks for putting it out there.

    Your Dad has such a clear, pure tenor voice. And Paul’s counterpoint highlights him just as his tenor highlights Paul.
    My Mom and Dad sang together for years. She sang alto and he sang whatever was left after all the named parts were accounted for. I suspect he sang in some measure for her sake and would have been much less likely to ever sing on his own.

    Have not heard The Wilson Bros sing before . Tried finding their music online to listen to, with no success. Do you have a link or could you post a song or two? I saw a short bio on Blueridge Heritage site. Is Ray still singing?
