It may seem like sacrilege to describe a gospel album as sexy, but David Houston's performances of sacred standards on David are intensely sensual and soulful. Produced by the forward-looking Billy Sherrill and backed by the Jordanaires, David is a rarity among the sacred albums cranked out in profusion by major country artists in that it takes well-known spirituals and transforms them into something surprisingly new and compelling. He prolongs "Were You There" into five aching minutes of religious ecstasy, and revives "The Milky White Way"--one of Elvis Presley's best gospel numbers--without echoing The King. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Houston_(singer)
