The First Decade (1983-1993) [edit]
by Michael W. Smith | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: October 12, 1993
 

One of contemporary Christian music's founding fathers, Michael W. Smith offers a brief sampling in this 10-year retrospective. "Place in This World" and "Go West Young Man" are hard-charging anthems with irresistible melodies, while the unique "Rocketown" and "Secret Ambition" show a CCM artist thinking outside the traditional borders. "Kentucky Rose," one of two new songs, perhaps is the most enjoyable and demonstrates where Smith has gone later in the 1990s.

The First Decade (1983-1993) | Posted November 15, 2011
MWS first greatest hits compilation (outside of the live album released previously). This release did an ok job of capturing some of Michael's top songs, but also missed quite a few that were played heavily on CCM radio. The disc does contain 15 tracks which is a good volume of music, but it's always difficult trying to make a "greatest hits" album and really please many...especially with a popular artist who has had many of their songs played on the radio. In some ways it seems like this release was sent out for more of the casual listener and "The Wonder Years" package was released more for the serious fan who wanted a best of release much larger in scope along with some amazing extras!

my first Smitty album! | Posted September 07, 2009
this was the very first Michael W. Smith album i ever got! it was the best Christmas present i got that year!(2004) at that time, it had all of my favorite Smitty songs: Friends, Place In This World, and Great Is The Lord. since then, my list of favorites has gotten longer, but i'll always treasure these ones forever!
