Phil Keaggy must be one of the most versatile guitarists around, playing all styles of music from classical to speed metal (with One Bad Pig). The selection of tracks on this album puts that versatility across well although some of the material here date from previously released albums. One of the previously unreleased songs "We'll Meet Again" is from 1967 and though not very good, it is of interest to show how greatly Keaggy's guitar playing improved in a few short years. There is a new version of "The Answer", originally from the Glass Harp album 'Synergy'. This is a very laid back version and lacks the character of the original. "Do Lord" with Glass Harp is excellent. The live version of another song on this album, "Time", heard on the classic 'How The West Was One" is so good that it takes something really outstanding to surpass it - this studio version does just that. If you're a Keaggy collector looking for rarities or a new CCM buff wanting a good representation of this man's work, this album is well worth investigating.
