"He Is Exalted" is a song I'm sure is familiar to most of us, very familiar to some of us! This joins with others on this compilation of Twila's early years. This album brings together some of Twila's work from the two albums 'Same Girl' (1987) and 'Kingdom Seekers' (1986). The collection is very listenable and is assured to get those toes tapping, classily produced pop gospel such as "Prince Of Peace" and "Runner". Also featured on the album is "Lamb Of God" with its powerful words. If you haven't already got the two albums the tracks came from, it's a sound investment for your music collection, particularly at the budget price.

I have this in my large evergrowing ccm collection;nice
one to have. Kinda disappointed that it only had
selections from 2 of her 80's releases; more song year diversity could have been added for collection. This songset contains songs from "Same Girl" and 1985 "Kingdom Seekers", which I love whole heartedly!(I have both releases on vinyl and cd). "Center of YOUR Will" will always be a top fave; and "LAMB Of GOD", which is top notch ccm quality and lyrics: pure beauty. I just love Twila's soft,angel'
-like vocals; she is GOD-sent to CCM. "He is Exalted" is a great worship song; the listener is lifted up!
"Holy is the LORD" is another top fave;exceptional in
vocals with extra bgv provided by Matthew Ward (1/3 of top ccm group "2nd Chapter of Acts). "Bonded
Together" is well worth mentioning; great bgv's are
supplied by the well-known Jonathan David Brown.
In fact Jonathan (genius producer) produced both albums/cds that make up this collection. Ex-member
of pop ccm group Petra, Greg X. Volz lends his bgv's to "Send Me". I also noted that well-known drummer
Keith Edwards (drummer associated with top ccm artist Amy Grant) plays drums for all selections.
GOD Bless! - Don
