One of the lesser-lauded maestros of Christian rock is our Bob. As frontman of The Allies he turned in some hefty performances, but this set shows he's one of the best. Power? Sure is. He can squeeze and shake a song as well as most - just hear him rattle the opening song "Mind, Body, Heart & Soul". Sensitivity? Well, funny you should ask, I was just thinking how he can handle tender lyrics with the sensitivity of a Stonehill; Carlisle doesn't disguise his own struggles, or the meanness life can dish out. The lyric of "Love Take Hold" for example, though not his own song, is convincingly sung by someone who obviously knows how it feels to be just hanging on. Same applies to "Goin' Home", supplied by Erick Nelson (when's he recording again?) Not quite so taken with the more rhythmic style of "Bridge Between Two Hearts", but that's the only weaker track in this classy set. "Getting Stronger", written by Carlisle and Charlie Peacock, is another very thoughtful, honest song. Good rock, rich ballads, all served up by that powerhouse voice. Go for it.

I had heard ccm radio play a great song entitled,
"Getting Stronger", it instantly made connection.
By mid June of 1993 Bob's solo debut hit store shelves: I have a copy of his late 80's video with the Allies, "Crying In The Chapel". "Mind,Body, Heart & Soul" was first song from this first solo effort.
"Getting Stronger" was the second song I heard, followed by "Giving You The Rest Of My Life" (love it wholeheartedly); the last song I heard ccm airwaves play was "Bridge Between Two Hearts".
This cd is top notch ccm! Filled with great songs to lift the spirit up, even to dance!
"Goin' Home" was the perfect closer, I believe per the liner notes that is Larry Knetchel on the piano: Larry was 1/4 of pop icon group Bread who brought us top notch ballads in the 70's. BTW, Larry and Bread's lead vocalist David Gates are the only 2 remaining survivors from the group: the other 2 passed in 2005.
Great solo from Bob to fit into the 90's ccm genre.
GOD Bless! -Don
