Thanks to Deseret Book I had a chance to listen to this great CD!
The CD is fabulous with only one little disappointment....many of the arrangements are not the original.  Still good, but just not quite the same.

You can purchase the CD through Deseret Book for $16.19 and you can also listen to music samples.  Each song is also available as a digital download, $11.98 for the entire album, or .99 cents each.

I was interested to receive for review not only the CD in the mail, but the copy of the LDS Living magazine that showcases all of these songs all the way up to the Top 100 Greatest LDS Songs of all time!   LDS Living magazine has been around for several years now and is a great resource for everything to church news, marriage, parenting, food storage, financial advice, missionary, lifestyle, sports and music!  The magazine issue for Jan/Feb has a great article on each of the songs.

Interviews with Janice Kapp Perry, Kenneth Cope, Jeff Goodrich, Michael McLean, Hilary Weeks, Roger Hoffman, and many more give you insight into the the writer/singer/songwriter and history of your favorite songs!  It was really an interesting read!

One of my personal favorites, A Child's Prayer by Janice Kapp Perry has been named one of the top 3 LDS Songs of all time...

Fun isn't it?  You can read the entire list of 100 songs here
