First released in 1974, this album from the long-running gospel act the Brooklyn Allstars takes its title from the group’s adaptation of the Moonglows’ 1958 top 10 R&B hit Ten Commandments of Love.

The Brooklyn All-Stars are an internationally recognized male gospel group who have been performing since 1950. Over their long, fruitful careers, they have won numerous awards and racked up two gold albums. Original members include the group’s founder, Thomas J. Spann, Hardy Clifton, and Sam Thomas. They recorded several cuts for Peacock in 1959, including “Rest Awhile” and “Meet Me in Galilee.” Their early years were difficult ones; with little money for touring, they often traveled to engagements stuffed into a single car, relying on parishioners’ hospitality for food and lodging because they were not permitted inside restaurants and motels. Things improved over the ’60s, and they established themselves as a fine traditional gospel act. Between 1971 and 1978, they were annually voted the number one gospel group in the U.S. Their biggest-selling hits are “When I Stood on the Banks of Jordan” and “He Touched Me and Made Me Whole,” on Jewel, the label they have been with since 1971. During the ’80s, the All-Stars embarked upon a series of world tours.
