Sequels in Christian music are easy items for ridicule by the sanctified hacks (are you referring to the hon­ourable profession of journalism? Ed) but in fact the credit for Volume 3 indicates that the original idea has found favour with the great album buying public. Pro­ducer Patrick Henderson has already wone a Dove Award for Volume 1 and this is every bit as good, an album which spits fire (Holy Spirit fire of course) using largely medley's of songs from the repetoire of white praise and worship and more often classics from black church like Crouch's awesome "Oh It Is Jesus". Despite all the vocal pyrotechnics (and lead vocalists like Loretta Jackson and Judith Christie-McAllister posess voices most soul and house artists would walk on glass for). A worshipful atmosphere throughout, Patrick Henderson keeps the rhythms tight and funky. A Blistering gospel album
