Aptly named title since it showcases gospel favourites Doug and Melvin Williams, errr, dueting. And it's not just with each other, they have a pile of top gospel names popping in to duet with them. Highlights are Doug and Yolanda Adams on her classic song "After The Storm" as well as Harvey Watkins Jnr from the Canton Spirituals singing up a storm on the classic Sam Cooke penned gospel number "Be With Me Jesus". Fans of Mighty Clouds Of Joy will want to catch Doug and Joe Ligton on "Living Testimony" and then there's the Motown influenced "Cooling Water" which features another Williams Brother, Lee, putting in a passionate performance. Top quality duets featuring Shirley Caesar, Marvin Winans, Debbie Austin and John P Kee mean that throughout this is top quality. The Williams Brothers may not have the same name recognition as a Winans or a Hawkins but these guys have been making great gospel music for years and this is another fine album.

I am very much a fan of all gospel music. but I must say, the Williams Brothers is my number one group.
with Lee Williams running close to tied. Their music is definitively uplifting, inspiring, and encouraging. I have listened to the Williams Brothers from the 1970's through now; and in every song have been a message of love, respect for God and our Lord Jesus Christ. Williams Brothers keep on in the Lord! Sister in the Lord. LS.
