This classic album released within weeks of the Jesus music pioneer's tragic death has a timeless quality and there are some absolute gems here, none more so than his definitive version of the Melody Green-penned "There Is A Redeemer". Keith is particularly strong on powerful ballads of faith and the songs here, "How Majestic Is Your Name" and "Draw Me" are stirringly sung with the London Philharmonic providing the backing. Elsewhere some of the arrangements are a tad dated but overall the production from Bill Maxwell (of Andrae Crouch And The Disciples fame) is impeccable so that whether he is delivering a country rock style "Draw Me", a cod-calypso "The Promise Song" or the traditional gospel sounding "O God, Our Lord", this is still stirring, timeless stuff.
