One of CCM's first musical giants, these lovingly compiled compilations are now back in the UK racks. Volume 1 proves to be as fresh probably as the day these songs were first inspired. Inspiration is an appropriate term because Keith's obvious enthusiasm and deep faith proves to be infectiously uplifting. Endless combinations of evocative melodies and profound lyrics combine to show a songwriter of obvious gifting and anointed delivery. These compilations include songs that have become classics such as "The Prodigal Son Suite", "Run To The End Of The Highway" and "You Put This Love In My Heart". "There Is A Redeemer" is also featured, the chorus penned by his wife Melody, sung in many churches throughout the world. Some may quibble that the decidely West Coast soft rock sounds dated but this is all in memory of a man who with humility seemed to understand the key to worship. Consequently Keith leaves us to share in his obvious delight.
