"This is not the commercial Glen Campbell of the 70s or the balladeer of the 60s.But it is Glen in a spiritual yet comfortable musical setting.He sings from the heart and that's important!"
Good songs, but a flawed collection!

"Glen Campbell is a longtime favorite artist of mine. His career has covered many genres of music. Just look at all the different artists he played for during his studio musician days! There were earlier forays in Gospel music. He recorded the "O Happy Day" album for Capitol. His composition "Less Of Me" has been a favorite with Gospel artists. A concert album included "The Lord's Prayer." I Knew Jesus (Before He Was A Star) was a hit. That album featured "Amazing Grace," with Glen on bagpipes. Yet the 80s and 90s brought a fresh committment to Christianity and Gospel music. This collection features many great songs. He recut "Amazing Grace." There are duets with Russ Taff and Anne Murray. He played a guitar solo on "The Boy In Me." Famed Christian trumpet player Phil Driscoll co-wrote "Jesus In Me." Glen said that it was like his life flashed before Phil's eyes. Sadly, I can't give this collection 5 stars. Several things bug me. 1. The practice of sticking new songs on a greatest hits collection should be illegal. There are two here. Ditto for remakes or live versions of old hits. 2. Most of these songs come from his New Haven albums "Show Me Your Way" and "The Boy In Me." How come no songs were included from "Wings Of Victory," the album in between? 3. We get the title song of his Word album "No More Night." If they could get it, how come they couldn't also license songs from the "Favorite Hymns" album? This would have made a great double album. Here's what I would have included. 1. Tall Oak Tree 2. Who's Minding The Garden? 3. I Will Arise 4. Wings Of His Victory 5. Searchin' Love (with Free Call) 6. I Surrender All 7. Suffer The Little Children (with Johnny Cash) 8. Less Of Me 9. The Lord's Prayer 10. Someone Above 11. O Happy Day 12. I Knew Jesus (Before He Was A Star)"
