Recorded live in the big top at Spring Harvest in 2012, this album collects together a number of worship times led by Pete James, the popular and talented Sheffield-based worship leader. Unfortunately, this album has a few problems and something of an identity crisis. Although marketed as a Pete James album, the project features only three of the 11 songs here written by Mr James. The worship leader does a reasonable job running through modern classics like "Everlasting God", "Hosanna" and "10,000 Reasons" but only the most blinkered Spring Harvester would claim these renditions are as good as the originals. With a tight band and some excellent bvs, this is a reasonable set though anyone looking for an introduction to a fine worship singer/songwriter would best be directed towards some of Pete's studio recordings.

Product Description
Captured over the last two years, this collection brings together some of Pete’s finest songs, some classics, as well as lesser-known recordings and some very special moments of worship, shared in the Big-Top with thousands of others.

Pete has featured on recent Spring Harvest’s live albums, but with several worship leaders featured at the event each year and only so much space, this album presents an opportunity to showcase the songs that simply couldn’t be squeezed on.

Pete has become a popular worship leader, known for his work with Spring Harvest and New Wine as well as as a songwriter and ‘afterhours’ performer.
