It's fair to say that you get your money's worth on this debut album from a Welling-based ministry team. This set contains 13 reasonably varied songs, with a clean, crisp production by Ron Knights. Opener "Come All Who Are Thirsty" sets the pace with a bluesy rock feel and some clever sitar style effects. The songs follow with varied style from piano-led ("Angel Hands"), gospel ("Heavenly Rain"), country ("You Are Mine"), to quiet and more reflective ("At That Place"). There are some effective touches in the instrumentation with some tasty slide guitar, keyboards and percussion. If there is one thing that stops this being a very good CD it's that the overall feel and style is rather dated, most of the songs sounding like they were written in the '70s, both style wise and lyrically, and have simply been given a modern production.

Truly inspirational song writing.
The track 'At that place (song for Jo)' is a beautiful song. I think we have all been at that place at points in our life, and I found it a comfort.
A real mix of Praise, Worship and reflectional music.

Hi Chris,
Many thanks for your comments. I'm glad you have been blessed by the album and especially the song 'At That Place (song for Jo)'. It was written for the young lady whilst I was on retreat and has been a help to quite a number of people.
God bless,
