Yet another live album, this one was recorded for the benefit of the CCPC Foster Care programme in Salem. Recorded in 1991 this set features many oldies from Larry's first six solo albums plus one or two songs that emerged during the 80s. Most of the songs are accompanied solo either with Larry playing his Spanish guitar or with Dan Cutrona tinkling the ivories. The highlight of the set occurs when Larry and Dan are joined by Charly Norman for two songs, "My Feet Are On The Rock" (far superior to the version on 'Home At Last') and, best of all, the ultimate live version of "A Woman Of God", with great acoustic guitar work from Charly and some beautifully understated piano from Mr Cutrona. Otherwise it's a relaxed atmosphere with the odd wrong note here and there but a pretty good perfomance nonetheless, it's nice to hear the 'Upon This Rock' songs accompanied with only one instrument instead of the dated layered arrangements on the album. Includes two rareties worth checking out, "Baby Out of Wedlock" and "A Note From Mr God". An album existing fans will enjoy.
