A double album re-release. After listening to the first side, I discovered that many of the songs sounded the same, but the lyrics were a real uplift. And the song "Strong Arm" is missing - guess what? They put it at the end of side 2. Now the 2nd side was much better all round. The lyrical quality on the whole album did not diminish, it is superb. The production is definitely 70s as is the sound. But don't let that put you off. And just for your trouble you get the 2nd Chapter Of Acts and Keith Green thrown in to help out. (Note the piano on "The Victor"). It's interesting to hear how Ms Owens voice has developed from a 16 year old on side 1 to the recent "I'm Your's Lord" and "Strong Arm" on side 2. Although dated, I can't fault the album, a good choice for re-release - buy it.
