"This is a classic African-American gospel / CCM recording. All songs have timeless themes of Christian hope and joy, recorded by skilled studio musicians and seasoned vocalists. Fans of Crouch know that he is a songwriter and producer first, and chooses to spotlight vocal talent alongside himself in his recordings. This album is both joyful and deep. Had this album been made in the current era, it would be promoted with full marketing not available "in the day" and Crouch would need to re-appear on Saturday Night Live. While many musicians from the 70's marked thier recordings with excessive synth keyboard, reverb and echo effects, Crouch's excellent taste is showed with restraint, preserving the timelessness of this recording. The album claims to be digitally remastered, and I will have to take thier word for it, as it has full spectrum frequency response and is noise-free.
The only dissapointment with this Light Records "Classic Gold" version is the bare bones credits, absence of lyrics and reduction in size of the amazing water color front cover image. I expected the front cover reproduction to be reduced to CD size, but Light Records reduced the cover another 40% to fit in a totally unnecessary fabricated gold frame. Light Records, if you are going to go to the effort, please print the lyrics, all the credits and reprint the original cover art as it appeared on the LP. Lucky for you I am too busy groovin' to this incredible recording to send it back for a refund."

"I have enjoyed this album first on 8 Track and vinyl for many years. The fact that you can still buy it; and now on CD speeks very highly of the quality of this music. Best overall example of the "roots" of Andrae Crouch"
