I have a problem with the publicity blurb that came accompanying this album. I'd be grateful if Alliance, or Sparrow or SOMEBODY could tell me the names of the three albums "which have reached gold status" for the veteran Mrs Moss Clark. Now guys, I know all about the gospel matriarch's achievements. But to make absurdly inflated claims about album sales is not the kind of thing a gospel artist should do, is it? Enough of such matters, what of the music here? Well, Mattie Moss Clark only sings lead on one track, a rather maudlin ballad "Be Still And Know That I Am God" only lifted by daughter Twinkie Clark's bluesy piano. Elsewhere it's the choir, with some stormingly soulful performances and fine lead singers who carry the album along. The Andrew Brothers are hot and the Clark Sisters' Dorinda Clark-Cole quite magnificent. With generous playing time this is an above average gospel choir album.
