Ernie Hines "Jesus the Christ Child," "Everlasting Love"

( Hines had a cup of coffee with Stax in the early 70s, so he has a lifetime soul passport , but don't expect funky, Bar-Kays-style electrified loving from his current stuff. These days Hines utilizes his expressive, at times beautifully frail voice to praise the Lord and even in his secular work, sing about righteous behavior. But remember,  it ain't no sin to cash in, so here Hines has crafted two tunes with built in audiences. The first is a catchy Christmas song and the second is a love ballad perfect for weddings, Valentines, and anniversaries. We hear there's a bunch of reissues and new stuff brewing so keep your Hines alert on.
