When the Tunneys were with First Call as well as being THE group to come and put some slick harmonies on seemingly every gospel hottie out of Nashville, First Call did impeccable MOR-pop gospel albums plus some classy acapella concerts. Now with their new line up, the group plump for a new 'youth orientated' sound, have called up that wise old production head Michael Omartian, and make a serious stab at crossover. Will they find a single hit in this selection of snappy pop-funkers? Maybe. The title track improves with every play (I'd love to hear a harder dancefloor mix), the revival of Stevie Wonder's "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing" works surprisingly well and the one track not produced solely by Michael Omartian, Chris Eaton's "Land Of Many Tears" has a commercial hook. Classy inspirational pop throughout. Also reviewed in CR12: Another majestic set from the ever top class trio, including new member Marabeth Jordon. 'Human Song' displays First Call's supreme ability to tackle assorted styles with total conviction and emphasises their claim to be the vocal trio crown of the US CCM world. Points of interest include a successful version of Stevie Won­der's super-cool "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing", Bob Dylan's strong 1989 ballad "Ring Them Bells" and some new material from Michael Omartian. Class is the word for this exemplary melodic pop set. If you don't believe me, grab a couple of fellow warblers and try it out. 8 Tony May

Newcomer Marabeth Jordan who replaced Mel Tunney in 1990, finally has her highly polished vocals on a recording of songs! What a great remake of pop icon Stevie Wonder's 1973 song "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing"; great song for the trio! Marabeth not only shines her vocals, but contributes on some of the songwriting; she brings a nice handful of talent for the trio. "I'll Always Come Back to YOU" has hit written all over it!! What a nice version of pop icon Bob Dylan's "Ring Them Bells"; it is such a beautiful recording; well done!! Michael Omartian produced a top notch ccm wellspring of songs; he brought out the best of each well-crafted song! "I Found Love" is another noteworthy song; great vocal parts for each of the trio. CCM artist,
Chris Eaton (fantastic songwriter/keyboardist)
supplies a great song "Land of Many Tears"; what a
great ccm styled song! GOD Bless! - Don
