A Best Of compilation which creates quite an impact thanks to Rich's creative consistency down through the years. It's fascinating to hear him on those early recordings and '81's "Sing Your Praise To The Lord" has dated less than the Amy Grant cover while his "Awesome God" ('88) is a praise and worship classic. It was of course when Rich discovered his Celtic roots and the Ragamuffin Band that he moved into creative overdrive and that period is generously represented on the 16 tracks here. There's one new recording, a haunting "We Are Not As Strong As We Think We Are" and this compilation should be heard by all those yet to discover the deft songwriting gifts and passionate spirituality of one of America's finest.
