CD Reviews

He shares his personal journey
K. Karnes | Indiana | 08/06/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Billy Sprague's fiance's death devastated him. The songs on this CD take you through his journey from grief to healing. The notes on the insert give wonderful insights into his songs. Every song is wonderful--and it's rare that I like every song on a CD. This is one you'll want to listen to from start to finish many, many times and one you'll want to share with your friends. The style of the music is contemporary, a style I think everyone can appreciate since it's not distinctly rock, country, or other labelled style. I highly recommend this recording."
Billy's Passionate Gift To Honor RosaLynn & Press On

"I bought this CD strictly for a song being played on the radio called "Heaven is a long Hello" I knew the general meaning of the song but I didn't know at the time the personal meaning for Billy. When I received the CD I actually loved every song which is unusual. You usually only like 2 or 3 at most. The compassion and emotion that poured out of this man's voice made me go back and pull the insert to find out what inspired him. It was then that I found out that his Fiance had passed away 2 days following a tragic car accident. The final letter she wrote him was a plea for him to press on. Because of the devastation of her loss it took 3 years but he used this CD not only to "Press On Mi Amor" but to honor her. The end of February my mom's cousin called me from N.C. and said that his daughter, who is a GA state trooper here in GA was planning to get married in April and he asked me to try to make it so that I could see every one again. A week later he called my mom and told her the wedding had been cancelled. Her fiance, who appearantly been a Sheriff's Deputy served an arrest warrant on a man. He was wearing his protective gear and had his weapon pulled on the man but was unaware of the man's father hiding in the hallway. He was shot in the face and killed. I bought another copy of this CD and sent it to her in hopes that she could identify with the experiences and emotions that Billy went through. God Bless anyone who has gone through something like this. My prayers are with you."
Sprague's Best
J. Petrey | Denver | 07/14/2007

"I had never really thought much of Billy Sprague's pop music until I heard this recording and it is definitely his best. Not only that but it is among the best contemporary Christian albums ever made. It isn't always easy to translate emotions like the loss of a loved one into good music, but Billy does just that in an impressive way. I agree with the other reviewers here that every song is good, even the lighter more pop ones. This album also brings back memories for me personally because I made a mixed tape for my then girlfriend (now wife) which included the song "Two-Way Street". We had only been dating a year at that point but the tape was full of memorable songs we both liked. Now fourteen years later that old tape is full of emotion and more memories. I can only imagine what emotions Billy Sprague feels when he looks back to that time."
