The credit list of this album reads like a who's who of Nashville - Russ Taff, Mike Eldred, Gary Lunn, Dann Huff, Jackie Street, etc, etc. A whole host of the top musicians turn out to help Glen out, but hey!, this is Glen Campbell after all, he deserves it, doesn't he? So here he is with another compilation of perfectly produced and performed middle of the road/country/worship songs. From traditional classics like "Amazing Grace" right through to more up tempo numbers like "Turn Up The Radio", Glen wanders his way pleasantly through track after track. "The Greatest Gift Of All" is a duet with Russ Taff and features additional vocals by Christ Church Choir, which marks the track out distinctly from the rest of the album. All in all Glen Campbell is very good at what he does and if you like that sort of thing you will thoroughly enjoy this album. I'm afraid it's not really my cup of tea but each to their own.
