You can now get this album in some UK book stores via a deal Kingsway have struck up with Spark. This album represents Scott Blackwell's apparent drive to provide the Church with contemporary house-style re-workings for old gospel songs and hymns. And a very good fist of it he makes too. There's nothing particularly adventurous in the sound (and you do wonder how long Blackwell can go on using the same team of musos and vocalists before we all get bored), but he emerges from the whole escapade with his house-DJ-worship leader credentials firmly intact. The album sets the pace with versions of "Can I Get A Witness" and "Can't Nobody Do Me Like Jesus" and the funk-up of "Trust And Obey" with Bernard Wright works better than it did on Wright's own 'Fresh Hymns' album.
