This DVD was recorded live at Calvary Assembly of God, Orlando, Florida on July 15th 2003. It is an all acoustic album which crosses the divide of modern and acoustic country. There is a nice mix of very familiar material, ie, "Peace In The Valley", "I'll Fly Away" and that country anthem, "Will The Circle Be Unbroken?" but what is intriguing is how some contemporary worship songs like "You Are Worthy Of My Praise" and "We Fall Down" have been adapted into such a strong country mould. Some great new songs have emerged like "Above All" and his award winning "Three Wooden Crosses". The musicianship is superb as is the photography, my only regret is that in some of the interview clips where Randy admits to having being away from God in his teenage years, we don't get a first hand account of his later conversion. However, this is a minor blip on a simply superb DVD comprising 15 tracks mainly gathered from the album of the same name and his previous release 'Rise And Shine'. Several years ago I had the pleasure of seeing Randy live on his two previous British visits and would love the opportunity to hear him again playing music like this.
