Very occasionally there comes my way a private release or import that is so good that I wonder how the talent being showcased has escaped being recognised. This is one such. Terri McFarland has her own organisation TLM Ministries, she's a maths teacher at a public school in Michigan State, she's a former basketball and Softball college star, and she has a singing voice that most female singers would sell their grannies to get hold of. On this, her third album, the pipes are given free rein; one minute she's belting out a joyful song of praise ("Come Bless The Lord"), then she's caressing the old Margaret Becker opus "Say The Name", and then giving a soulful reading of the Billy & Sarah Gaines oldie "How Great His Heart Must Be". The rest of the tracks are well up to the mark, production values are good and there's lots of quality time and effort gone in. Worth seeking out.
