This is the last album by the legendary Jiva band. This was an all-out effort where it seemed to everyone that these songs were certain hits. I certainly did. Everybody in the extended Jiva family pitched in and made this project a profound musical experience.
People who love just good music will dig this timeless collection of tunes, and the band deliver their message subtly on top of great R&B grooves, and there are many. Let's just call this non-denominational inspirational music, as the message can have meaning to evey body on this planet breathing.
We urge the buyer to download the HIGHEST RESOLUTION file your player can take ( or makie a CD ), because the dynamic range is left pretty much alone from my transfer from tape.
It may appear 'less loud' when compared to some more modern releases, but when you TURN IT UP it all works..
