Reviewed by Mike Rimmer United Kingdom; Radio/Television This has an old fashioned gospel soul feel that never goes out of fashion. Rev Tina Redden's voice that dominates these recordings is reminiscent of the classic gospel sounds of a Clara Ward or a Dorothy Love Coates as she demonstrates she can swoop, holler and testify with the best of them. The group seem satisfied to sit on a groove and let the Rev do her thing. The majority of tracks are either inspirational material like 'If I Had A Hammer' and 'Down By The Riverside' or gospel remakes of classic soul tracks.' I do like this a lot.
