By Rev. James Cleveland. You don't have to like gospel or be Baptist to love this album. The Reverend takes gospel to a whole new level in this reissue of the 1979 release. His command over the choir is so uplifting that I am sure he can inspire just about anyone from any religious sect and infuse them with the divine spirit. This recording has been a favorite of mine for years and was impossible to find after my cassette copy had finally worn out. So I was thrilled to see this amazing Sony reissue. They did a nice job in preserving the original recording and I recommend it to anyone who likes gospel music or see where Nick Cave gets his inspiration. In the words of Rev. Cleveland, , "Nobody taught me about stage presence, I just try to be with people on their level. I feel like people like folk who talk about everyday problems and shared experiences, rather than trying to be glamorous. I try to talk to them (audiences) and give them hope that things are going to get better. I think I can talk to people on their level because people are just people." Sony (1995), Audio CD Discs: 1.
