A reissue of 15 beautifully recorded tracks of late "8Os/early '90s congregational worship. Plenty of old favourites like Kendrick's "Shine Jesus Shine" (a short version!) and Craig Musseau's "Good To Me" performed with the spit and polish of a top quality gospel outfit (members of Nu Colours guest) with the occasional dose of ragga rhythm thrown in to motivate you out of your pew and into praising God more visibly! That said, I've never heard a smoother or more soothing rendition of Kevin Prosch's "God Is So Good". However, this CD does lack the grittiness I had hoped for from a live recording. Apart from that, I can't complain, except I'd like to have heard something newer - this album was originally released in 1991. But for new comers to contemporary church music it's an excellent introduction and 12 people were introduced into the Kingdom the night of the recording!
