Like many other Solid Rock releases, hard information on what recordings sourced this release is missing from the sleeve. A live concert album with a full band sounding like it was made in the '80s and with brother Charlie contributing some hot guitar licks it's a reasonable show too. All the usual suspects are here, "I Wish We'd All Been Ready", "Stop This Flight", "A Woman Of God", "The Rock That Doesn't Roll", etc, etc. It's great to hear the Christian rock pioneer introducing his songs including an explanation as to why his voice wasn't as strong as normal because he'd been playing monsters with his son earlier that day!). But it has to be said that the quality of the recording is little more than bootleg standard. With his passing, there are many fans longing to hear again the maestro on CD. But, in truth, there are dozens of better albums than this below standard release.

Great gig from Biola College in 1986... long copied and traded on cassette among collectors. This is almost certainly sourced from one of these copies of a copy cassettes rather than being a soundboard master... and its the second time this has now been issued on CDR by Solid Rock... same gig as the On The Prowl CD (which was originally a fan club only release). You'd be surprised to learn though that Solid Rock have changed the track listing for this CDr re-re-release of a live bootleg. I'm sure you can buy them together for about $35 plus P&P so they come out sounding exactly like that dodgy old tape copy you used to have.
