"Do You like the Edwin Hawkins Singers early '70s hit "Oh Happy Day" ? Enjoy Shirley Caesar's soulful vocals? Sly and the Family Stone's incomperable orchestration? Al Green? The Watts 110th street Band? Then THIS is for YOU! Gorgeous Harmonys, NO synthesizers to mess up the purity of the Hammond b3 organ's warm tones- Oh its an awesome record. The Los Angeles Community Choir featured such notable voices as the GREAT Andre' Crouch ( "I've Got Confidence" - covered by Elvis Presley), Joe Ligon (of the Mighty Clouds of Joy),Delois Hall(Tony Award for 'Dream Girls') Mel Carter and 212 more FANTASTIC voices of praise. Highlights include opening track "Help Us Master, "It's a Shame ( if you don't give your love to Him)" and the AWESOME "Thank You Lord For Saving My Soul" . This album is from a fruitful era in Christian Gospel Music ( the early 1970's) yet sounds as timely today as when it was originally released. All fans of such diverse groups as the Statler Brothers, J D Sumner and the Stamps and Rev James Cleveland would do WELL to add the marvelous masterpiece to their collections ."
