The Sleeve/Liner Notes:
As Chaplain of United Wesleyan College, I commend the “TOTAL VICTORY TRIO” to you. I have heard these dedicated young people minister in song and word and know that the Lord will bless you as you listen. Their’s is a rich ministry, true to the Scriptures and blessed of the Lord.
 Reverend David G. Konz
 Chaplain, United Wesleyan College

 Several years ago, The Eastmen met a young man in one of our concerts whom we learned to respect, not only because he has learned to overcome a serious physical handicap, not because of his fine talent as a singer, and not solely for his real dedication to Jesus and spreading the Gospel in word and song, but because of the combination of these things and his determination has made Jeff Steinberg one of the outstanding personalities in Gospel Music.
 As you listen to this album, we know you will receive a real blessing and will enjoy this milestone in the career of Jeff Steinberg and The Total Victory Trio.
 J.R. Damiani

 “O sing unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord all the earth” (Ps. 96:1) With these words of the psalmist I want to present to you, THE TOTAL VICTORY TRIO’ in their first record album, “He Must Have Loved Me.” In this recording you will find the right ingredients to make one of the finest records of Gospel songs, both new and old.
 In Kay, Ron, Miles, Jeff and Jeff, you have five young people who personally know Jesus Christ as Saviour. They desire, that through the songs in this album you will experience Christ in a personal way. Love for their Saviour is felt in every song they sing.
 The Lord has used The Total Victory Trio in a marvelous way, as they have ministered in song and word. I have worked with them in evangelistic services and found their witness to be a real blessing.
 May the God who loves this world, and gave His song Jesus Christ to die for the sins of men, become close to you as listen to The Total Victory Trio.
 Evangelist Dick F. Christman

 It is not really fair to say this album is by The Total Victory Trio. Because the songs we sing, the feeling behind them, the singers and the musicians are of, by, and for Jesus Christ. We have found Him to be the only One, and His way to the the only way for our lives.
 If you are a Christian, our prayer is that the Spirit which we feel as we sing will bless you while you listen.
 If you are not a Christian, we pray you will become one. It is simple – Jut follow these four spiritual laws:
 1. You have sinned against God-Rom. 3:23
 2. The wages of sin is death in Hell-Rom. 6:23
 3. Christ died and rose from the dead-Rom. 10:9
 4. You must invite Christ as your personal Savior. John 1:12, Rom. 10:13
 God Bless You as you listen to “He Must Have Loved Me.”

Personal Review:
So, the Total Victory Trio are Jeff Steinberg, Jeff Rudloff, Sylvia Kay Fenwick, Ronnie Fenwick & Miles Eisenhower. This is Jeff Steinberg’s first album. Anyways, so it starts off with the AMAZING song “I’m Feelin’ Fine” it’s an upbeat Gospel track. As stated in previous Jeff uploads, he has a way with his words and vocals, but with Sylvia on backing vocals… it accents Jeff, and let me say this can instantly become a favorite of anyone! The second song is called “The Lighthouse” – and holy gosh, Jeff hits an amazing high note in this song, and wow… just wow! Jeff is absolutely amazing! The backing vocals come in, and they just make this album even more amazing! (Two songs in, and I love it!) The following track is sung by Sylvia Fenwick, it’s titled “Sheltered in the Arms of God” – and boy, can she sing! So, the A-Side closes with the song “Little Boy from the Carpenter” (which went on to be featured on Jeff’s first solo album, “Something Special from Jeff”) and it’s absolutely beautiful, Jeff goes above and beyond to sing praise to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Also, the version of “Little Boy from the Carpenter Shop” that is featured on this album, isn’t the same as the one featured on “Something Special from Jeff” – so that is the A-Side.

The B-Side opens with the title track, “He Must Have Loved Me” – and it becomes an amazing track! The Total Victory Trio are absolutely amazing! The following track is “How Sweet It Is” (No, not the Marvin Gaye song) – nevertheless, the track proves to be great! The entire group gets in on it too! I love it! The next track is “He Will Provide” – it’s pretty good, each member takes turns singing different verses of the song. The following song is the amazing track “That Day is Almost Here” (which is a song about the coming of Jesus – and we all know how I feel about that!) – the organ playing during that track is tremendous! Amazing. The album closes with track “Redemption Draweth Nigh” – which is sung by Jeff Rudloff! Who just happens to be another amazing Jeff. Jeff Steinberg comes in to sing, and helps close an amazing album.
