Keith Green was the youngest to sign with the ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) having already written forty songs by age 12. After limited successes and issues with addiction, Keith turned his efforts to contemporary Christian music and in 1976 signed with Sparrow Records. Though he died at age 28 in plane crash, his music lives on and The Greatest Hits features 18 of his best including: Oh Lord You’re Beautiful, Your Love Broke Through, Easter Song, There Is A Redeemer, Create In Me A Clean Heart, The Lord Is My Shepherd (23rd Psalm), To Obey Is Better Than Sacrifice, and more.

As a follow up to last week’s post, the Bach Guild and Vanguard Classics have released Big Chamber Music Box, Vol 2 as well. While I would have preferred that they combine the two volumes in one album for $0.99, this is still a great collection of classical Chamber songs and over five hours in length making it an outstanding deal. And once again, the quality of the recordings appears to be what we have come to expect from the Big Box series. < *Price was $0.99 at time of posting but is subject to change.
