Yes He Lives
After Sir Cliff stood up at a Billy Graham rally in the UK, he remarked that he couldn't find any 'Christian' music he liked. That was until he met gospel rocker Larry Norman, with whom he has since performed and repeatedly welcomed to the UK. This is considered Cliff's third gospel album, but it's his only rocker, and includes three Norman covers. "Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music" is also on the Cliff 1970s CD. Also on the original record were Kris Kristofferson's country hit, "Why Me", written for and about Johnny Cash, and songs by Malcolm and Alwyn, Second Chapter of Acts, and Randy Stonehill. The M&A choice could be better, given the fantastic material on their Fool's Wisdom album. There are also good cuts by Terry Britten, a long time writer for Cliff, Tina Turner, and other artists, ending with Cliff's take on the hymn, "When I Survey the Woundrous Cross". The bonus tracks include Cliff's single of the song Eddie Money made his own, "Peace in Our Time". Unlike some recently knighted pop stars, Sir Cliff has used his influence to help the oppressed in the UK and the world, attempting bring about the hope expressed in the title of the last song.
