Spencer did several solo records, but the music business took a back seat to his work with the Children of God, who are now known as the Family. Although he did play music, he did not return to the recording studio until a gig at the Notodden Blues Festival in Norway in 2005. Festival promoters connected Spencer to a Norwegian blues band, and Spencer was so impressed with their talent that they entered the studio and Precious Little is the result.

Spencer was well known not only for his slide guitar work, but also his entertaining takes on 1950s rock and roll. Although he throws in Please Don't Stop which was a hit for Fabian, for the most part he eschews the Buddy Holly influenced side of his work. Spencer had the ability to sing sweetly or roughly, and his mature voice leans towards the former. This is not strictly a blues recording, but more a blues influenced recording. Spencer pays tribute to Elmore James with a nice reading of James' It Hurts Me Too. His slide work has improved greatly, something Spencer attributes to deciding to play with his fingers instead of a pick. Although the electric guitar is used on this recording, Spencer uses acoustics, including an old DobroTM spider bridge guitar, to great effect. Tune choices are interesting. Spencer revisits the classic Corrina Corrina as Serene Serene. One of the more intriguing songs is Maria De Santiago, which Spencer had brought into the project as an instrumental. Encouraged to add lyrics, this song has a blues undercurrent, but Spanish guitar mixes well with blues slide work, and the song has a wistful, haunting quality.

Much of the appeal of this project lies in the relaxed, confident manner that Spencer approaches his work. The instrumental work and vocals are exemplary. His lyrics are not his strongest talent, but for the most part they convey simple truths and comfort. And the project includes the remarkable work of a group of extremely talented Norwegians who can play the blues with the best. This is a pleasing return from a long lost talent.
