AllMusic Review by

This 15-track collection brings together both live and studio recordings made for the HOB label. Both of the famous leads with the group -- Clarence Fountain and Louis Dicks -- are featured on tracks like "Something's Got a Hold on Me," "When I Come to the End of My Journey," "Too Close to Heaven," "Lord's Been Good to Me" and "I Got Jesus on My Mind," their two magnificent voices trading off on "Alone and Motherless," "Running for My Life," and the perennial favorite "I Saw the Light." The live tracks on here literally sweat with emotion and fervor. A nice set.
