I sort of agree with the reviews above, however, I have played it in a club a few times... mainly early doors stuff to which it did get some thumbs up and general interest and I have played it as the last record because I needed some spiritual uplift for the drive home (or something) and it got a great reaction.

It is a lovely record, typical KDJ really... no idea where the samples come from and it's all the better for just having a record in a plain sleeve, one mix / version and no more information on. That way you're not swayed by glossy pictures, a glut of useless mixes or any other extras, a brilliantly soulful and deep record.

My version just has Moodymann and Blessed written on it in marker pen

The perfect KDJ track, this was repressed on Forevernevermore, but first appeared here as one of Kenny's periodic white-label only releases, >200 and "available" mostly in Europe and Detroit. Much like JAN 001, the feedback was so positive that he couldn't help releasing it, but unlike that record, the reputation is deserved. Sweet, sweet, sweeeeeeeeeet gospel with KDJ himself on piano.

one more record you'd have to be built like a fire plug to play in all sincerity.
beautiful, spiritual house like this should come with instructions to play.
my guess is. Sunday ONLY!! An older crowd who knows their music, or younger crowd who've been awake for WAY TOO LONG would be about the only way to get away with playing a record like this.
beautiful, essential, sure to get to live for the moment.

My version ist two sided. One side is dub and the other is kinda deep-gospel-meditation with piano and later same old 4/4 beat and back to the gospel. Sure it's a VERY interesting song, but I'm afraid not very useful for the club. Musicians and unbiased people with music in their mind will love it.
