Signature Songs is a budget line reissue series of CDs from well-known American CCM acts. If you're unfamiliar with Billy and Sarah Gaines, the music is firmly in the American R&B gospel tradition, with most of the songs dating to the late 80s and early 90s. I was disappointed that there were no lyrics in the liner notes, but to compensate for that there are notes on each song, which give insights into how the songs were written and how the songs relate to our daily faith. The songs cover central themes including forgiveness ("I Found Someone"), challenge to faith ("Make Up Your Mind") and change ("The Same All The Time"). The fact that the songs come out of personal experience will encourage the faith of those who listen. This is a bunch of well-crafted songs, perfectly executed. If you want some slinky R&B gospel (if a little dated) featuring up front Gospel lyrics, look no further.

I love everything that I have ever heard by Billy & Sarah Gaines. Their music has blessed me tremendously down through the years. I play it all the time. I cannot find
the CD that has the song "The Artist of My Heart" on it.
The album also has the song, "All Day Praising You."
Where can I find this CD? I had it years ago on cassette, but I don't have the means to download it to CD. It was truly one of my most favorites.

I listened to and LOVED Billy & Sarah Gaines back in the '80s. I heard a song on the radio the other day and the guy sounded just like Billy, triggering memories (I immediately began singing 'Underlined'). I went to Billy's website and ordered some music. I'm soooo glad that this music that touched, inspired and filled my heart so many years ago is still available!

I would like to know if you are the persons singing the wedding song "Your The One" which has reacently hit the charts? Some of the lyrics are: Baby tell me how did you know, was it the first kiss, (No it was so much more than that."

my favourite song is "Come drink at my table". By the way I have sang the duet "Same all the time" and its a wonderful song. May the Lord bless you in your ministry.
