Back Cover notes as written by Alice Moss & Sam Davis:

"The truly great singers of our time have been born into music. Danny L. And The Brewerettes are no exception, for their mother, Vera Jenkins, is truly one of the great singer/songwriters of our time. Uour hearts will be touched and blessed as you listen to the music that has been inspired by God. You can feel His presence as they sing. It is this power that we have tried to capture in this album, parts of which were recorded before a live audience. Indeed this album is an experience in Gospel singing which you'll never forget."

They had a full backing band with string arrangements and other percussion -- most of the artists on this release are new to the database:

Danny L. And The Brewerettes is a family (brother and sisters, along with two sisters-in-law) vocal group from the Twin Cities.
The material on this album is mostly written by their mother, Vera Jean Jenkins [that's Vera Jenkins (2), here] who if I recall correctly is the mother of 'Funkytown" singer Vera Jenkins.

While this is clearly a Gospel group, some of the arrangements here are more contemporary, which was perhaps more in-tune with the local music market of the time period during which it was recorded. It's a solid recording, and very engaging either way.
