Phil Keaggy is one of contemporary Christian music's pioneers. A superb musician, his music has always been more a reflection of who he is (a musician who is a Christian) and not so much what he is (a Christian musician). In honor of his 30-plus-year career, Myrrh Records released a two-volume set showcasing some of the more interesting recorded moments in Keaggy's catalog. It's tough to pick between the two, but volume 1 perhaps illustrates a little more clearly the diversity Keaggy displayed over three decades. CCM radio fans will recognize "Love Divine," a nice little Beatlesque number that charted high several years ago. "March of the Clouds," one of Keaggy's personal faves, is a masterful and beautiful instrumental off of 1987's The Wind and the Wheat. Both "Theme" and "Where Is My Maker?" capture the late-'70s sound of the Phil Keaggy Band, a rock fusion outfit whose music (not to mention the outfits in the CD's cover notes!) will inspire some grins. "Do Lord," a 1971 live track from a Glass Harp opening gig for the Kinks at New York's Carnegie Hall, is another historical milestone, as is "Little Ones," a highly charged ode to unborn children and the abortion issue, recorded in 1980. Considering that a good deal of his recorded work is no longer available, Keaggy fans owe it to themselves to pick up both volumes of Time. --Michael Lyttle

Nice Walk Thru the Park of Time

"This is a nice CD from Keaggy. Albeit, these are not some of the 'best' songs which you would find on a greatest hits album, as the review below indicated. However, the album is wonderful.Many of Keaggy's classics are present (i.e. Sunday's Child, I will be There, Pilgrim's Flight, etc.). The music has an ELO and Beatles type sound to it, and as usually, Keaggy demonstrates how wonderful a guitar player he actually is. Also, the CD includes several previously unreleased tunes, and live versions of other tunes.Each song on the CD has it's own personality, and in my book this is a good thing, since too many musicians tend to get into a rut and begin to sound the same. Keaggy does not fall into this trap. This is a great CD for the long time Keaggy fan and the new fan alike. I highly recommend it.p.s. the other time CD (part 2) is a good investment as well, check it out."
A Great Christian CD To Listen To

"Phil Keaggy is one of my most favorite Christian music artists. His music is so great to listen to, very simple yet uniquely one of a kind. The lyrics are good, sending a clear, strong message. The guitar work is really cool. Here are a few of my most favorite songs from his album "Time 1":I've Just Begun (Again): This song talks about a simple optimism in our walk with Christ. Even if we run into hard and sad times, we still have hope. We have to "try not to think of things that can't be done" because God can do anything.Sunday's Child: Another great song, the main theme of the song is about meeting the "King of Hearts".Love Divine: A fun song with a simple and loving message, about a "Divine Love" from our Lord.I Will Be There: A song with a beautiful tune and beautiful lyrics. The song is telling about Jesus "will always be there" for you.Where Is My Maker?: The words were taken from the book of Job, when Job cried out "where is my Maker?" The shuffle at the end is really neat, making me want to tap my feet and snap my fingers to the beat.What A Day: "What a day that will be when we go up to heaven" is the theme of the songs. Makes me want to sing along!!If you would like to start collecting Phil Keaggy albums, I suggest you start with this album, then "Time 2". Don't miss out on these great music!!!"
One of the Most Talented Christian Entertainers- Ever! #1

"If you don't believe it, just have a listen for yourself. Phil has a gift for songwriting, singing, and most of all playing guitar- all for Jesus! It features a Glass Harp (his 1st band) rendition of "Do Lord". It features ballads ("Find Me In These Fields" and "Little Ones", a beautiful tribute to the Pro-Life movement). But it also features rock ("Sunday's Child", the title track of an album Amazon.com needs to pick up, and "Love Divine", Phil's tribute to the Beatles). Even if you don't like Christian music, you cannot underestimate the talent of Mr. Keaggy, who is able to put out at least one project per year. And of course, who cannot appreciate his great love for God, whether Christian or not? Also, check out Time 2."
