Somehow Cross Rhythms missed this when it was released in 2003. Doug, or Duggie Dug Dug as he is sometimes known, is, when he is not writing praise and worship classics like "I Wanna See Jesus Lifted High", touring the world putting on Family Praise Parties, Family Services and training events for children's workers. As with every Doug Horley album, it's a musically wild ride with punchy rock 'n' roll riffs next to some funky R&B, crazy rap and even some sax solos from Ben Castle. The fact that he could get such luminaries as Castle, not to mention Phatfish's Lou Fellingham and that neglected R&B diva Vanessa Freeman, to come and perform "mere" children's music says much for the regard in which Doug is held while the opening cut "Jump Up (Cast Your Worries On Him)" complete with a rap from M.O.D.'s Efrem Buckle is catchy enough to get adult radio play. Doug never lets you down.
