As usual, Dan Zanes shares his good taste and good friends by excavating inspirational tunes from various backgrounds bringing along amazing talent like the Blind Boys of Alabama. His original tunes fit in seamlessly and the instrumentation is always skilled and timeless. You will undoubtedly sing along with your kids and feel as close to spiritual (or closer) than any formal religious gathering could bring you. A well-set table and a tasty treat from Dan Zanes and friends, as usual.

I LOVE this CD of Dan Zanes! I previously purchased a set of his CD's containing "House Party, Night Time and Rocket Ship Beach". I had only seen Dan on the kids channel, little video clips in between shows, so I originally thought I was buying them for the kids. To our delight the whole family loved them! So when I saw this inspirational Music available I jumped at it. I have hot been disappointed! The kids and husband love it too. He has some good old songs on there that are great to hear again. I don't listen to the popular Christian music from the radio much because I find it bland, and for the most part a little boring. This is the kind of music I like! You'll find that there are a lot of other artists included in the songs on this CD. This does not distract from Dan's style at all because he is all about sharing the gift of music. I am a fan, Dan! Thank you for sharing your music!
