This 1971 album was produced by Somerset, VA, resident Chet Hagan. Hagan was quoted in the 12/25/1971 issue of Billboard magazine as saying "We had this idea about The National Gospel Band and are convinced that we have managed to bridge the musical generation gap between rock-oriented moralistic songs and the gospel-oriented quartet songs of another generation. And we've done it without doing violence to the beauty and deep message of the old gospel songs."
Chet Hagen was an Emmy award winning producer of "instant specials" and music specials for NBC and CBS television.
For a time in the mid 1970s he wrote and voiced "Eye On The Tube" for WJMA.
