RATING 4 4 4 4
FORMAT: Cassette Album

Reviewed by Tony Cummings

Despite the presence of the truly magnificent Kevin Prosch I can't recommend this one. The anointed American has recorded his wonderful songs better on other albums while Matt Redman-Jones is having trouble with his pitching. A ragged live praise set which doesn't really hang together.

I am researching the history and impact of worship at soul survivor on the Uk and global worship scene. I have obtained every cd from 94 to 13. I would love to have this cassette to hear that very first event, so if by some miracle a copy has survived and it is available, please please let me know. Many thanks. Phil.

This music on this cassette album conveys that innocence and humility of meeting with Jesus. In terms of performance, I'd tend to agree with previous reviews, it does not match the arrangements, nor confidence of musicianship that 1994 and later recordings convey. There are some individually wonderful improvisations on the piano and we hear the earliest ever version of Lord of the Dance. The crowd does add that live feel and there is lovely spacious arrangement to Lord you have my heart though there are some errors in pitching and in the drumming on Got a love song. The intro's and outro's are well thought out however, in songs such as O Lord Arise and we capture soul survivor new wine in its first generation of youth worship, so a gem, I suppose. in itself, containing some lovely songs.
