This 1986 album sees the very young Norwegian artist embarking on her first English language album and a pop music ministry beyond the shores of her own country. Blessed with a gorgeous voice and a desire to minister, it isn't surprising to know that Solveig's songs and work have taken her across the globe in the subsequent 25 years. The seeds are all here on this release. With a production which was very much of its time, these poppy songs range from the encouraging ("Valuable") to the confessional ("Lonely Prayer", "Hard At Hearing"). Enlisting Larry Norman to duet on the catchy title track didn't hurt either since it gave the album a wider appeal and even brought it to the attention of a host of Larry fans like me!
