"The Crowns Of Glory had a brief run at Peacock in the early 1970s. Consisting of three male and three female singers, they had a deep, yet funky, sound to their music. There are three different leads on these tracks, and Billy J. Shepherd is the stand out of the lot. This album is worth purchasing just for the two tracks that feature Billy J. Shepherd. Their take on the Bill Withers classic 'Ain't No Sunshine' is fabulous, but 'Worried Mind' will blow your mind. The interaction between the lead, the harmonies, and the instrumentation makes this cut soul perfection. 'Christian', led by Debra Body is in the traditional gospel form, but the rhythm section brings it into a more soulful territory. She also does a fine job on Gladys Knight's 'I Don't Want To Do Wrong' and the title track. 'Lord Hold Me In Your Arms' is the first of three appearances of Len Martin as lead. His high tenor allows him to go from a Curtis Mayfield falsetto down to a Rance Allen-type growl."
