This is a budget line repackage of the Nashville CCM hitmakers' albums 'Avalon' (1997) and 'O2: Avalon Remixed' (2002). 'Avalon', produced by Charlie Peacock, is full of well known tracks like "This Love" and "Here To Deliver". Also there are beautiful versions of the hymn "My Jesus, I Love Thee" and Andrae Crouch's "Jesus Is Lord". 'O2: Avalon Remixed' features drum beats, synthesised sounds and the expected vocal effects you'd hear in any good dance track. Notable tracks are "My Oxygen" and "Make It Last Forever" with Out Of Eden though the new version (featuring ZOEgirl) of their best ever song "Testify To Love" is not as good as Avalon's non-dance mix version on their 'A Maze Of Grace' album from 1998.
