The sleeve promises "An intimate evening with the 'Father of Christian rock'" and the video does not disappoint. Larry, with full beard, following the ill health that preceded this 1995 release, gives us acoustic performances of 14 songs which have their origins in every period of his career. So we have "Moses In The Wilderness" with little change since the 1969 original but explained now by a talk about Larry's youth in Sunday school which is both amusing and poignant. Favourites like "Why Don't You Look Into Jesus" and "I Am A Servant" are here, with his mid-period represented by 'Twelve Good Men" which really requires a band to do it justice. The high points of the video are the newer songs: "Weight Of The World"; "Goodbye Farewell"; and "Let The Rain Fall Down". This is more professional than some of Larry's video releases but lacks the grittiness that the others provide.
