Whether you know him as Doug Horley or Duggie Dug Dug, his songs have enlivened all age worship in many a church for many a year. And now the doyen of non-patronising kids' praise brings together 12 of his rockiest songs on one disc - from 1993's "We Want To See Jesus Lifted High" to his latest couple of offerings which appear for the first time on this album, "Could'A Should'A" and "Hold On". With the exception of the two new cuts, which have yet to become favourites, these will all be well known to his audience, but each of them provides the chance for a good leap about and plenty of windmilling air guitar moves. The two new tracks have Calum Rees on drums and the excellent Matt Weeks thumping along on bass with 1991's "Next Big Thing", Tracey Riggan (amongst others) doing duty on backing vocals. As always, this is a real fun set of songs, with lyrics that connect with younger worshippers and tunes with such good hooks that you just can't stop singing them. Why not get the album and give a go at your next Holiday Club or Messy Church?
