Here's a fine album from 2006 by the Resurrection Band veteran. It kicks off with "God's Not Dead" in true Kaiser toe-tapping blues style with Glenn and band adding a personal slant on the children's classic with some custom slide. Kaiser is joined at numerous points throughout the album by bassist Roy Montroy, drummer Ed Bialech amongst some others, most notably his ever supportive wife Wendi. The great thing is that even when Kaiser's only backing is his trusty guitar, songs like "I've Been Redeemed", "There Is No One" and the powerful "At The Cross" are still delightful pieces in stripped back state, as honest and open as can be. The soulful vocals are trademark Kaiser, with that gravely, emotive tone. "Go Tell It On The Mountain" is perhaps the greatest track as Wendi assists on a smouldering version the old folk hymn. Having seen Glenn perform live in Ireland a number of years ago it was the man's charisma that first appealed and certainly this album overflows with personality and passionate faith.
