'Shine Jesus Shine' was the best selling UK praise and worship album of its era. This 1988 set may not quite be the "classic" proclaimed on the sleeve, but this mid price re-issue is a fitting tribute to the March For Jesus movement that has grown from a humble trudge around Soho to a 10 million worldwide phenomenon. Pride of place goes to "Shine Jesus Shine" and the simple congregational version here inspired a generation of worshippers. The first section, 'Songs Of Worship And Prayer' gives us eight songs and several are indeed of superlative quality though their rendition is decidedly subdued. The 'Songs For The Streets' section with its rather forced atmosphere is less successful and one or two of the songs haven't worn well. But still, this album is a timely reminder of the depth of talent of a great worship songwriter.
