Dale Rose Lyr Add: Never Grow Old (20) RE: Lyr Add: Never Grow Old 31 Aug 00


Another version not to be missed is that of Alfred Karnes on The Music of Kentucky, Early American Rural Classics 1927-1937, Vol. 1, Yazoo CD 2013 and also on Kentucky Gospel 1927-1928, Document CD 8013. If you want just other gospel music to go with it, then I would suggest the Document ~~ both are excellent anthologies, a close call either way. Let's see ~~ who else? Carter Family, Jim Reeves, George Jones, Alisa Jones (daughter of Grandpa and Ramona Jones ~~ hammer dulcimer instrumental). . .

SMALL ADDITIONS: You are just as likely, perhaps moreso, to find it as Where We'll Never Grow Old in most hymnals.

Favorite Songs and Hymns, Stamps Baxter, 1939 lists it as copyright 1930, probably a renewal. It has the notation (To my father and mother, -- J.C.M.) below the title. I did not check Heavenly Highways, probably my next favorite source for old gospel songs, but I am certain that you will find it there as well. Heavenly Highways has the advantage of still being in print, while Favorite Songs and Hymns is not, though you can easily find used copies in the $3-$13 range, depending on condition and whether paperback or hardback.
