Very much a show case for Larnelle's gradual move away from a black gospel sound to the more languid musical waters of soft pop ballardry, this and the other volume is a pleasantly engaging compilation taken from nine different albums which shows off his impressive local talents. As Cross Rhythms has observed on many occasions, Larnelle's later recordings suffer from overblown 'inspirational' orchestrations, which are nothing special. If you want to get Larnelle's better recordings purchase Volume 1 only.
