Released last year in the States, celebrating the Dove Award-winning vocalist's 10 years of albums, this compilation is a helpful retrospective. The tracks come from nine albums. Highlights, surprisingly enough for a compilation album, are the old favourites - Edwin Hawkins' 25 year old classic "Oh Happy Day", the 50's hymn "Great Is Thy Faithfulness", and the ancient spiritual "Amen". If you're a fan of Larnelle Harris and enjoy his gradual move from an authentic black gospel style to inspirational balladry, then this compilation, and it's sister volume will be a useful addition to your collection.
