A bit of CCM history, this one. At the age of 15 Amy was signed to Word Records and this, her debut, was released in 1977. Produced by Chris Christian at this Home Sweet Home studio this went on to sell 50,000 copies in the first year of release (a big sale in Christian music for the time). Songs like "Old Man's Rubble" and "What A Difference You've Made In My Life" and "Beautiful Music" have a certain sugar coated charm and certainly Amy shows considerable vocal confidence for one so young. However, as this re-mastered re-issue demonstrates not all the songs she was recording back then stand up to close scrutiny while some of the arrangements have dated badly. But that's history for you.
