I've been lucky enough to hear this highly regarded singer/songwriter live so it is great to see him release a live album at long last. What is even better is that the backing tracks have been dispensed with and he's stripped them back to their acoustic core. The addition of the excellent Dan Wheeler provides a nice foil and the additional guitar and occasional additional vocal work very well. Steve's own vocals have a touch of Mac Powell's sound to them and are well suited to his songwriting style. Steve takes to the piano for the song "No Greater Love" and this is a nice contrast to the rest of the album and sits nicely between one of my favourite tracks on the album "Don't Need To Understand" and the Del-Amitri sounding "What Shall I Do?" 11 songs are featured in total from 10 years of Steve's ministry. It's a fitting summary - here's to the next 10!
