    The Detroit gospel singer Rance Allen's three-decades-plus career is given a well-deserved retrospective in this entry in the STAX PROFILES series, which covers selected highlights of his output between the 1970s and the '90s. Allen's joyful tenor combines with a simple but effective R&B backing in a wholehearted celebration of faith on the vintage funk of "Ring My Bell" and the uplifting "Ain't No Need of Crying," both dating from the mid-'70s, while from the '90s "Heaven Is Where the Heart Is" and "Up Above My Head" show that Allen's powerful vocals and simple faith are both undiminished by time.
