Great cd compliation; it marks 10 years of recording for this bright, talented ccm vocalist. I'll never forget hearing her first hit, "Never for Nothing"; it caught my attention. My reaction to this song was "WOW!!"; it kinda reminded me of a slice of pop group Heart:You nailed this song Margaret! I just luv the pop styled "Solomon's Shoes", another great one!! I had heard "Find Me" on a compilation cd of mixed ccm artists;another favorite. I just luved the song "All I Ever Wanted", it is still heard today on ccm radio; this is a top notch recording! It is a song from her 1991 "Simple House" produced by ccm great Charlie Peacock. The talented singer/songwriter/musician Chris Eaton adds his nice, polished vocals to the song "All I Ever Wanted"; a masterpiece was made!! Great songwriting Margaret!! "Streets of Innocence" is also another favorite on cd. GOD Bless! -Don
