Amy Grant (1977)

This is another album that I wasn’t sure about before I bought it. I already owned many of her CDs, when I saw this in a charity shop for 99p, but the song titles on the reverse put me off quite a bit. I don’t usually go for overtly CCM albums as the lyrical content normally turns me off. however, I figured that it wouldn’t hurt me to buy it and, at 99p, I could ditch it if it was no good.

I have to admit that I have never been more wrong about an album than this one. I should have trusted in Amy’s songwriting, musicianship and voice all of which are exemplary on this album. Needless to say I kept the album and its now one of my favourites.
