All power to Walsall’s Everlasting Books & Music making available here this little gem from one of the pioneers of Christian music. Here plumping for a stripped down acoustic sound and allows the winsome quality of his songwriting to be displayed in all its luminous intelligence. Grab the narrative nostalgia of “We Were All So Young”, the wistful reflection on grace on “Dare To Believe” or the delightful duet with Phil Keaggy on “That’s The Way It Goes”. Other guests on this delightfully relaxed set include Mike Roe and Russ Taff. Maybe Randy’s season as a CCM industry big timer has passed (not such a bad thing really) but there are still discerning music lovers who will want to search out this delightfully crafted set of songs by a huge talent.

Product Description
Recently named one of his 'three best records - and maybe his best EVER!' by Campus Life; Randy Stonehill boldly forges new territory with 'Edge of the World'.
Supported by a cast that draws from the deep well of talent from the Jesus Movement days in the late 60s and early 70s as well as many of the most vital and important voices of Christian music today, 'Edge of the World' manages to strike the nearly impossible balance between contemporary vitality and historical significance.
Featuring the talents and collaborative efforts of Sara Groves, Larry Norman, Phil Keaggy, Annie Herring (of 2nd Chapter of Acts), Michael Roe, Russ Taff, Barry McGuire, Noel Paul Stookey (of Peter, Paul & Mary), Love Song, and Phil Madeira; Randy Stonehill is back with a fantastic album of original songs.
