Part four in this series of recently remastered download-only reissues of prison ministry recordings by US singer/songwriter Tony Loeffler opens with a spine-tingling rendition of "Amazing Grace" by saxophonist Leon De Vose II followed by a stirring gospel vocal performance of "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" by Lonnie Whitfield. Once again, the message is strong and clear with guitarist John Concepcione taking his turn to speak to the crowd before rejoining the Blues Angels on the 22 minute "Passaic County Jam" - notable for an astonishing piano solo from Henry Mitchell - which sees the band spread their improvisational wings on this rough and ready release.
