Comments: Do not confuse this with "The New Gospels," which is a
rerecording. I've listed the album and the CD under "The Gospels" and
"The Word and the Gospels" since that is how it was originally issued
and reissued. This is NOT a rock interpretation of the Bible (such
as "Jesus Christ Superstar". It IS Rick's way of interpreting the four
gospels using his keyboards, an operatic tenor (Ramon Remedios), a
narrator, and a choir.
If you are not fond of "classical" singing, and not one to pay much
attention to the Bible, avoid this! If you're the least bit curious, I
can only say that I do not care for all the music in here, but that
the voice of Mr. Remedios is quite listenable, even if you CAN'T stand
opera!
