Jared Anderson is well known for his worship leading at the New Life megachruch at Colorado Springs, particularly his work with The Desperation Band. This is a companion piece to Anderson's latest live set. It seems to me that as a stand alone item it is of little value, as musically we are presented with 30 second clips from each of the songs. In addition there are text files of the lyrics and a few "song perspectives" which look pretty low budget and more impressively Adobe files of the sheet music. That's great for advanced, sight-reading musicians, but not so good for the rest of us who need to actually hear a song, before we learn to play it. If you have the album, and want to introduce the songs to your church this might be worth purchasing, but really it seems exploitive to sell this as a separate item to the live album.
