    Comments/Info
    This is the album that catapulted the Imperials to the top spot among contemporary artists in 1979. Heed The Call is one of those classic albums that folks will enjoy for generations to come. Though the group were solidly established in the Contemporary Christian music industry at the time of its release, this album contained music that even southern gospel fans could enjoy, as evidenced by the fact that Oh Buddha spent 10 months at the top of the Singing News Top 40 chart, while Praise The Lord was on it's way to becoming one of the top CCM songs of all time, and still being played on the radio today, almost 40 years after it first hit the charts.

    In addition to Buddha, southern gospel fans got some more good old quartet harmony on songs like First Morning In Heaven, Heed The Call, Old Man's Rubble, and Let Jesus Do It For You, making this one of the last Imperials recording to feature southern gospel harmonies, their next album, the iconic One More Song For You, steered the group into a more hardcore pop sound, leaving the southern sound far behind.

    This is one the best recordings of the Russ Taff era, which is the lineup that most fans (myself included) consider to be the group's classic foursome. It is by far the most successful edition of the quartet ever, and still the most loved, even after all these years.
