Although he left the world of blues for gospel, Rev. Robert Wilkins never abandoned his guitar or toned down his brilliant instrumental tendencies; he simply took his rampaging playing style and used it in the service of the Lord. While he wasn't in peak form for this newly discovered and released 1971 concert, he was far from second-rate. He performed 13 cuts and sang with passion, power and conviction. Robert Palmer's liner notes outline Wilkins' contributions and style.
