I have this collection of songs that spans Leslie's ccm career from her 1983 solo to 1987 new recordings of 1985 songs. Both sides of the album begin with a song from her "Black & White in Grey World"; "YOUR
Kindness" starts side 1 & "YOU'RE the Same" starts side 2:both versions are new recordings, I prefer the
1985 recordings. Mark Heard's "Heart of Hearts" is by far one of her most well known songs; she really covered the song top notch! 3 songs from "Turning" lp finish side 1, "Answers Don't Come Easy" is one of my fave #'s from that album. I do like the acoustic of 1985 "Walls of Silence". 1984 ccm radio hit "Here He
Comes With My Heart" failed to make this collection.
I love "I'm Finding" from her debut. "When the World is New" an all time fave always! I was hoping that her solo recording of "By My Spirit" would be the version on this collection: it was the first version that I heard play on ccm radio. "Strength of My Life" was a big song for her in 1984; of course you can hear the great vocals of Russ Taff that accompany Leslie:
a masterpiece. I would have like to hear more of the
piano version of reprise of "YOUR Kindness" that closed the songset. Check out the label, quite different, all songs are listed on one side & producers and albums songs are from on the other side.
GOD Bless! -Don
