It's a live album and it's a good one. Not great though! Recorded in May 1998, it has taken a while to get into our hands. Where could it have been for all this time? Perhaps we'll never know. It is a must for those who love live worship because it's one for the shakers and movers in our family, something to get into. For the rest of us it's come too late. Whilst you might like some of the oldies, when it comes to worship songs, God is really inspiring worship leaders to write and so an album like this becomes dated very quickly. My experience is that new worship songs are being written, produced and recorded almost monthly! Sorry Kingsway, too late, be quicker next time! We need more live worship and we need it now! I agree with some of the notes on the sleeve, God really is doing something supernatural with worship and it's just the beginning, watch this space!

I was blessed enough to be present during the event and I have to say it still move's me everytime I hear Jacky & Chris on this Album.... Definitely had to be there to feel Gods spirit moving through the Holy Spirit. I Miss Jacky and her husband Tony; Tony and I use to play plenty of golf together. They move back to Australia and I never heard from Tony again!!! If anyone has direct relations with Tony or Jacky; would you please forward my email address & Tel -number (404) 313-5112 or I can be found on face Bill Rivas.

The album has some great songs on it for sure.
Original songs like "The Lamb Came Down" are great; old Chris Falson classics like "I See The Lord" and "I Walk By Faith" are great too. However the recording quality is fairly poor, also "All Honour" is poorly done and stretches for a incredible 15 minutes in length. (definitely inferior to the original recording on the 1990 Christian City Church Brookvale recording, "Stand" where Jacky does the lead vocal.)
However the tone and idea of the album is good, finishing off with Jeff Crabtree/Denis Compton's "The Power", a great recording of a great Australian praise song.
