Glad – Champion Of Love – 1985

This was the 6th album from Glad. I can’t compare it to any of their earlier album because as of now I haven’t listened to any of them. It is most definitely an easy listening album with strong horns and strong production. The album had 3 singles, Still On The Side Of Love made it to #18, Where Your Heart Is made it to #38, and The More I Know Of You to #25. I’m actually quite surprised that these songs didn’t climb a little higher as this album was perfect for the CCM charts in 1985.

  1. You had mentioned in a comment that you had only reviewed one Glad album here. I used the search bar to see what album it might be, hoping that it would be Captured in Time, the first Glad album I ever heard, and by far my favorite. You are right that this album was a typical 1985 ccm album and should have charted better. However, Captured In Time is not only a better Glad album, it is a more typical pre-accapella Glad album. I’d love to see you review it. It compares very well with Northbound (1983) that David Lowman reviewed here.
