SILENT WITNESS Ricky Skaggs (1994, Sony/Rainmaker, unrated, $33.95, 800-669-3398) ”Nothing frightens me more than religion at my door,” the Velvet Underground’s John Cale once sang, but here’s a tape starring singers who emphatically disagree. A celebration of country music’s gospel roots, Silent Witness features a mixed bag of acts crooning their fave religious tunes and musing about spirituality. The performances range from unpretentious and heartfelt (Johnny Cash, Tammy Wynette) to Las Vegas glitzy (Sawyer Brown, the Gatlin Brothers), and nonbelievers may find the interview segments longer than they need to be. Creepy exception: former drug abuser Glen Campbell pontificating about his relationship with the Lord. B -SS
