For bluegrass gospel devotees this video is a real treat. It includes tracks from the successful albums 'The New Tradition' and 'Seed Of Love', well produced and enthusiastically performed by the Nashville four. This is interspersed with chat from the members of the band, filmed in a cornfield (no cliches there!). The visual side of the video could have been more, a lot more, creative. Apart from the title track, which is filmed among haybales in a barn, all of the songs are presented as a straight forward concert performance - not very convincingly live (where did they hide the drums and violin?), but enthusiastically received by their audience. Despite this flaw, the video is full of Southern home-boy charm, and will be thoroughly enjoyed by New Tradition followers. Special highlights include the acappella-style "Hear Jerusalem Moan", and the moving rendition of "Hands In Wood".
