Amen! | Posted January 26, 2008
You go, LampaFan! I hate "The Early Years" CDs that have been coming out lately! Bad song selection, & nothing new for those of us who already have all of the other albums by the artist. I mean, please. Record companies could and SHOULD do better than this.

Bad! Bad! Bad! | Posted December 11, 2007
The way Record Labels make money these days is just down right ridiculous. They release albums that have no meaning, hoping people will buy them! And it's sad to say that Christian music veteran Rebecca St. James' record label has done just that. With the new series, The Early Years labels are advertising albums with artists earliest hits. No new songs. No new pictures. No new anything. And do they... Well I'll save that for later, I'll let you read on.

The album starts out with 4 singles from Rebecca's self titled debut. As far as early hits go "Here I Am", "Side By Side", "Little Bit of Love" and "Above All Things" work perfectly. They were all hit radio singles back in 1994. The songs from her sophomore album, God, are a tad bit more questionable. While "God" and "Go & Sin No More" were both big hits for Rebecca, I don't remember "You Then Me" ever being released to radio. So does that make it a hit? No.

And it gets even worse. Two of her songs from her third album Pray, featured here are not hits!!! Sure Pray was a big hit, but "Hold Me Jesus" and especially "Love to Love You" were not. So now, not only do they make pointless CD, but the song selection is pointless as well.

If I were you and I owned Rebecca's albums I would just steer clear of this album. And if you're a newcomer looking into her music, buy her greatest hits album Wait For Me The Best From. Not only does it include 8 more songs, but all the songs are actually hits! Hopefully, we'll see no more of these albums in the future.
