The Coloring Song

Post by dihigo » Tue Dec 05, 2017 1:55 pm

In December 2017, both The Union of Sinners & Saints and CPR released covers of the 1981 Petra classic, "The Coloring Song." Which updated version do you prefer?

Ha! I thought about adding that one, but I really only wanted to compare these two since they were released at the same time.

Wow, I can't believe USS is hanging in there. I have never cared for John singing the classic material. It would however be cool if he would cover the first two records.

USS gets my vote. The medley is fantastic.

By far USS is better; no offense to CPR but the sound sounds really fake like it is ran completely thru the keyboard, and plus the auto tune with GXV voice is horrible; I'm not really liking much about the CPR offering. BTW John Schlitt's vocals on Desert Rose gives me goose bumps and that is a prime example why I've always have felt John was the better lead vocalist; You can feel his joy or pain and heart thru his voice.
