PRIMITIVE QUARTET - He Included Me
For 39 years, the Primitive Quartet has ministered to audiences with their unique sound and
powerful Christian messages. As they say on their website, "Our ultimate goal is to see saints
blessed and encouraged to have a closer walk with God and to help lead souls to a saving
knowledge of Jesus Christ." Their new album, "He Included Me," is traditional mountain shape
note style singing at its finest, accompanied by mandolin, banjo, fiddle, guitars and other acoustic
instruments. Unlike most groups, the Primitive Quartet plays their own music on recordings,
lending a feeling of authenticity to the songs on this album that reflects their 150 stage
performances each year.

which God finds us, since He can fix us up as good as new. As the song says, we may be "Full of
rust and decay, but the touch of God's hand will sure make [us] shine."
"Ye Must Be Born Again," the classic C.H. Spurgeon hymn, is recorded on this CD. Largely
instrumental, it features a heartfelt recitation over the new arrangement by the Primitive Quartet.
This project is another solid release from the Primitive Quartet. With the harmonies of their
traditional mountain shape note singing and the warm sound of their instruments, they present
messages of faith with a clarity and conviction that shines through each song on "He Included
