In the recording o* their new album, The Watchmen were able to work with some of the finest Gospel back-up musicians in the world today.

In a recent nation-wide poll, Mr. Goodman was voted "Mr. Gospel Music," according to Singing News, a music trade-paper. On rhythm guitar for the Watchmen was Aaron Wilburn, formerly of the famous television artist, The Singing Wilburns, and now rhythm guitarist for the Happy Goodman Family. Playing steel guitar and lead guitar were Jack Smith and Royce Morgan. Jack Smith is the Goodman's regular concert steel guitarist and Royce* Morgan is one of the most sought after backup men in Nashville. Also included in the backup group were Rick Goodman on drums, Minnie Abraham on piano and Les Summers on organ. "I Wished We'd All Been Ready" is the fourth album released under the auspices of the Watchmen Quartet.
