It's hard to believe that these days Sheila Walsh has established herself as an inspirational singer when you think of the cutting edge pop music she made at the start of her career. Her fourth album was recorded in 1984 and produced by keyboard wiz Craig Pruess who, at the time, was working with Cliff Richard. He contributes backing vocals along with the cream of Christian session singers of the time. One of them, Chris Eaton, contributes four songs and there are also three songs from Graham Kendrick from the days when he didn't just write worship material. One of them, "No Alibi" is a wonderful piece of experimentation and the opening title track is an anthemic piece of '80s pop. Talking of pop, two songs from Eaton, "Golden Rule" and "Don't Turn Your Back On Jesus" are given a keyboard-driven sound by Pruess and stand up well for the period. Walsh's voice really suits this material and may surprise people who are used to her more delicate modern tones but for a while she was making edgy, interesting pop. The Kendrick written single "Growing Up To Be A Child" is a moving song and includes a beautiful Mel Collins sax solo but failed to make the charts.

The first time I ever heard a song by Sheila, that I recall was in 1984, the song "Surrendering" from this album. The song features pop icon Cliff Richards on backing vocals; who incidentally dueted on her 1985 song "JESUS Call YOUR Lambs" (also written and recorded 2 years prior by ccm's Teri DeSario). There is simple truth and beauty in the song "Surrendering". I also luv the song "Starsong".She did a spectacular performance on the song "Triumph in the Air" in a concert I viewed on tv. It was a perfect match for her to sing with Cliff Richards; his pure and polished vocals are simply magical when added to Sheila's;Heaven's beauty is heard. GOD Bless! -Don
