In fact as only one of my four nominations for Carman's best is on this album I have to say I question the compilers choice here. But with Carman on a sales role there's clearly sales to be gleaned to pull together some tracks from 'Revival In The Land', 'The Champion', 'Comin' On Strong' and hit two live albums. Collectors may want the previously unreleased "Serve The Lord" but as that's a dullish MOR ballad it's scant reward for shelling out for a new album.

A great cd collection full of notable carman songs throughout his ccm career. I had heard the newest song from this collection, "Serve the LORD";plus I had also purchased a ccm video collection containing the song. A nice collaboration of work with top notch producer David Foster; a great friend to a piano! I knew this collection would have to include the memorable duet with ccm top female vocalist Kim Boyce: this is my all time fave Carman song!! There are sooo many notable songs on this great collection! This cd should be in every ccm collector's library. Carman has soo many songs put to video productions that are worth seeing; especially 2004 song "There is a GOD";and some popular 90's such as duet with Margaret Becker "Holdin On"; "Step of Faith" featuring Ricky Skaggs. And who could ever forget his top notch production video of "America Again". GOD Bless! -Don
