This is Charlie's long awaited "inspirational" album which comprises a bumper 18 tracks making it very good value for money. I know that Charlie has put a lot of effort into this album which is a mixture of love songs, hence the word "heart" in the title, and songs of faith represented by the word "soul", Charlie recognises the distinction by stating "as God is the source of all love, they can all be deemed songs of faith." It kicks off with Bob Dylan's "Blowin' In The Wind" and other well known songs including James Taylor's "You've Got A Friend". But there are more overt songs too like "One Day At A Time", "Put Your Hand In The Hand" and "Someone Is Looking For Someone Like You", popularised by Gail Davies. Apart from the Don Williams' oldie "Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good" the rest of the album is new material mainly written by Charlie. Some of these are romantic ballads and some are strong gospel material like "Saviour's Song" and the very thoughtful "Song For The Dragonfly". This fine album concludes with a live rendition of one of Charlie's gospel gems "Shine Your Light". A very enjoyable album, recommended to those who enjoy smooth MOR country.

Due to health and family problems-I have still to meet Charlie!I hope that day wont be too long in comming! I KNOW just how wonderful and Christian this lovely man is-by the way he sings and writes his song of Faith and Love! He never fails to make my feelings surface and tears spill from my eyes-I feel he is singing just to me!
My cousin and her late husband are firm friends with Charlie-and he is just so wonderful and caring!
When in one of his songs,he says 'My Father sang to me'-its as if he is reminding me of my own late,and lovely Dad -who did indeed sing to me!
Charlie!I love you! Long may you bring Joy and renewed Faith to our Hearts!

another brilliant album from the one and only charlie landsborough. this has to be one of the best albums charlie has recorded to date, although having said that, every one of charlies albums are brilliant too. this one however, it has to be said really does have some beautiful songs and as always, some wonderful lyrics. anyone who is not familliar with charlie`s music doesn`t know what they`re missing. buy this album now.

I totally agree with what you say about Charlie's music. I have met him every year for the past 12 years. Have you ever seen him in concert?
