After the attempted crossover of the 'Don't Give Up' album and the accusations and scandal that accompanied accusations of a drug bust, 'Finally' saw Crouch creating an uncompromising gospel album with high end west coast production and the usual top sessioners. And like any Andrae Crouch record, there are plenty of amazing grooves and classic performances. Here you get the prayerful pleadings of "We Need To Hear From You", written by his twin sister Sandra. There's the definitive version of "My Tribute", complete with great choir vocals and a fantastic string arrangement and then there's the funk of "All The Way", driven by some stupendous bass playing from Abraham Laboriel. On "That's Why I Needed You", Andrae takes care of the lead vocals but there's a beautiful moment in the coda of the song when he invites stalwart vocal supporters Danniebelle, Edna Wright, Howard Smith and Linda McCrary to vamp. It's classic Crouch!
