Reviewed by Tony Cummings

I have long been a fan of The Rance Allen Group and once write a sleevenote for a vinyl reissue of some of the Memphis crossover gospellers' recordings for Stax/Gospel Truth long before I was a Christian. So I was fascinated to hear how the grizzled veterans were shaping up in 2007. Apart from having a hair style more outlandish than Mike Rimmer, I can report that the Rance still retains his fearsomely soulful chops. His ability to sing in a gutsy, declamatory baritone and then swoop into the most heavenly of falsettos has long been a thing of wonder while the accompaniments here, produced by Rance himself and Chris Byrd, are funky in an old school way. Occasionally the lyrics are a tad corny (eg, "For Your Feet") but on the whole these are heartfelt songs of praise performed by a trio who know all about blurring the lines between R&B and gospel.
