Yes folks, Hezza and the gang are back, and at one of the legendary radio venues to boot. This is a typical supercharged gospel performance that is mega value at just under 77 minutes and a blast from first to last. Aficionados of Mr Walker's plethora of recorded work will know what to expect - a tight band, excellent vocal ensemble, passionate lead vocals from any number of talented soloists - and, whilst he occasionally lapses into some of those over the top exhortations that verge on the cliché, he directs proceedings with a strong, up-front hand. Even the audience gets in on the act, and everybody sounds as if they're really havin' church. A satisfying listening experience and gospel fans can buy with confidence.
