I first heard Ron Surrey back in 1998, when a couple of tracks from his album 'Rhapsodies Of The Spirit' were on the playlist of Cross Rhythms Radio. I've seen that album described as acoustic R&B, which was fair enough; this 2000 release, however, is somewhat different, as it has a decidedly contemporary rock feel to it. Ron is joined by a tight combo that features keyboards, trumpet and harmonica to go with the usual guitars, bass and drums, but the addition of a group of soulful session vocalists means that there's still a gospel/R&B flavour to proceedings. The album title refers to the fact that the 12 tracks here are all inspired by Scripture, all are Surrey compositions, and at nearly 68 minutes playing time you get plenty of music for your money. Worth investigating.
