The last track "Heaven Is Home" is an unreleased song from 1970. Unfortunately, it is a very poor quality recording and it seems a waste of space including it. There is a live track "Shouts Of Joy" featuring Phil with Glass Harp which though very good does not represent Keaggy at his best when playing live. I was very disappointed to find that the "Prelude: Bach's Bourree" has been cut from the beginning of "O God, Our Help In Ages Past" while the ending of the track has also been faded out early. Equally disappointing, the hatchet has been applied to "John The Revelator", taking some two minutes or so of Keaggy's best solos off this track. The rest of the material on here undisputedly represents some of the best of Keaggy's songwriting and guitar playing throughout a recording career spanning over 25 years.
