If you and your kids have been praising, laughing and dancing to this most gifted of Australian communicators for a while now you probably have some of the tracks on this set. It contains four recordings from 2006's 'Super Saviour'; six tracks from 2011's 'God Rock'; four from 2014's 'The Jesus Hokey Pokey'; one from 2014's 'King Of The Jungle'; two from 2015 is 'Jingle Jingle Jesus' and two from 2015's 'Boss Of The Cross'. But if you and your kiddywinkers haven't yet heard these albums let me particularly recommend "Big Words That End In Shun" (probably the only song, children's or adult's, then uses the word 'propitiation') and the yuletide ditty "Ho-Hohemian Christmas Rhapsody". Even if you've got some of Mr Buchanan's albums this compilation offers five previously unreleased tracks. They are good too, particularly "I Cannot Come" which recounts the tale of the Master's invitation to the banquet but also gives Mal 'Nudge' Heap the opportunity to mess up the words to hilarious effect. Buchanan is a master of conveying biblical truth in child-friendly dollops and though, to this adult, the kids singing the chorus lines tends to get a bit grating over a 27-song CD, there is much believers of any age can enjoy here.
