An appropriate title because that's what you get on this album from veteran reggae singer Judy Mowatt, a former backing singer for the late Bob Marley. This is a collection of 14 songs spanning over 25 years, some tracks from her previous albums and new ones written since her conversion six years ago. There are some classic tracks, with a timeless message like "Many Are Called, But Only Few Are Chosen" and, "Strength To Go Through", a song she wrote in 1975 and re-wrote in 2001. Judy Mowatt fans will not be disappointed with this album if they can get hold of a copy. Only a limited amount was released on her own record label, which was also produced by her. Judy's voice is like good wine; it gets better with age and well worth investing in.

Judy, I was reading an article of an interview you did from 2005, I was so inspired, so honoured. I have been a fan of yours from the moment I heard you voice and saw you beautiful face. It is so nice to know Bob e xcepted the Lord Jesus before he died and that you are spreading the gospel. Good work, Judy, I love you and will always do.

Brought my kids up through the 80's and 90's listening to your beautiful voice. I do hope that I can find this particular CD album.
God Bless.
