Lee Williams and The
Spiritual QCís have
delivered another outstanding video. Having attended the actual
recording of this project, we wonder if the DVD would represent what
actually occurred at Temple of Deliverance on June 2, 2007. Well,
needless to say, it does.
The video begins with a pictorial of the outside of the venue. The
group then announces that the recording is dedicated to the Late Bishop G.
E. Patterson. The next shot is that of the group already on stage
ready to sing.
The recording, as with all of the groupís live recordings, took place at The
Temple of Deliverance, Memphis, Tennessee. The backdrop of the
Temple of Deliverance, once again, makes for the perfect setting for this
recording. The stage is certainly large enough for the singers and
the musicians. There is no one standing around the stage.
Therefore, you are able to focus on the singers and not be distracted by
any unnecessary activity on or around the stage. The audience is a significant
part of the recording. Many in the audience were on their feet the entire recording.
The camera shots allow you to get close up and personal with some of the
There are 11 songs on the video. The songs are not in the same order
as on the CD. On the video they are - "So Much Trouble," "Have
Your Way," "Oh I Want To See Him," "In My New Home," "Jesus Is Waiting,"
"He Laid His Hands On Me," "So Much To Be Thankful For," "Come See About
Me," "For Me," "Thank You For Blessing Me," and "I Found
The guys really minister to
you with this project. As you look at the video you can feel, and
see, how the members of the group are touch by the various songs.
You get to experience Patrick, Leonard, Al, and the other musicians
rejoicing with a shout. You also see the emotions pouring out of Lee
as he stands and just let the Holy Spirit use him. Powerful.
This is in deed a very powerful recording. Many should be blessed by
The lighting is great. There are many close-ups of the members of the
group and musicians. The quality of the sound is outstanding. There are no
highs or lows in the sound quality. The recording level is consistent
throughout the video.
The project is vintage
If you are looking for a good video that captures the essence of
Lee Williams and The
Spiritual QCís, you
will want to add this video to your collection.
Overall this is a great video. Unfortunately, you will not find any
interviews on this video. It would have been great to have some of the
history of the group on the video. Although, most current fans of this
groupís music know their history, for those of the next generation and
those to come that will pick up this video, it would have been great to
have at least some aspect of the groupís history. For the gospel music
history buff, a brief interview with all of the group members would have
been a plus.
It should be noted that George Dean is one of the producers of this
recording. Mr. Dean, of
The Gospel Four,
has been instrumental in all of the
recordings. And, he brought to this project the same creativity and
musical genius that he incorporated into all of the prior
In spite of the lack of the interviews, we still like this video. We give
the video Lee
