More About Amy Grant
Born on November 25, 1960, in Augusta, Georgia. Amy Grant has helped revolutionize contemporary Christian music.
Harking from Nashville, Tennessee, Amy was part of a close-knit, religious family. She had a strong grounding in God's Word through her Church, would would become a major influence on her music.
Grant learned guitar as a teen, and worked at a local recording studio. It was during this time that she made a tape of her music for her parents, which had been discovered by a producer with Word Records, a Christian music label. This led to a recording contract, and her first album was released in 1977. The self-titled album was a big success in the world of Christian music. With her unique style, Grant charted new territory. She fused elements of existing genres of gospel, hymns, and Jesus music—which used rock music to convey Christian teachings—to create a fresh, new sound, not heard before. Her songs are often deeply personal as well as reflecting her spiritual faith.
Grant continued recording and performing throughout high school and college, and has made a significant career for herself releasing numerous popular albums over the years.
She also earned several Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association (GMA), including for Performer of the Year.

Reviews - What do customers think about Time Again: Amy Grant Live All Access?
Appreciated for Finally Providing a DVD of a Grant Concert Mar 8, 2007
To my knowledge, the only prior video of an Amy Grant concert was one from her 1983 Age to Age encore tour. While it once was available on VHS, it has never been released on DVD. Consequently, the Time Again ... Live DVD is appreciated for giving us not only a DVD of a Grant concert, but a Grant concert on video more recent than 1983!
I have already reviewed the Time Again ... Live CD and will not repeat those thoughts here. The DVD is very good; in addition to providing six songs not on the CD (although one song from the CD, "Believe," strangely is missing here), it includes a few chats that Amy gives between songs. Consequently, the DVD on the whole provides a more complete concert experience than the CD.
There are two standouts on the DVD. The first involves Amy's story of encountering a homeless man in California and talking with him for two-and-a-half hours. That experience led her to write "Carry You." (It's also interesting to speculate whether this is the same encounter with a homeless man that led her to write "Turn This World Around," off of 1997's Behind the Eyes.) The second highlight is Amy's closing rendition of Jimmy Webb's "If These Walls Could Speak," a moving, less remembered track off of Lead Me On.
The quick cuts on this video, while deplored by many reviewers, are in keeping with the times and attention spans of Americans who grew up in the video age. It is nice to see the work of several different camera operators getting used from time to time; if you're going to employ them, you might as well use what they've done! The director and editor also know when to switch to one camera, as when Grant performs songs on her sofa. Some artistic decisions were made here that are not bad ones, although I can understand why some people would be irritated by them.
The "special features," including band interviews and a promotional spot with Amy before one of her two Fort Worth concerts, are serviceable but not worth the price of the disc. The reason to get this DVD is the concert, which actually may be a mixture of performances from the two Fort Worth shows. (The promotional text is ambiguous as to whether the video comes from one concert or both.) It's worth the money if you want to see a very good Amy Grant concert.
sub-par Feb 6, 2007
Looks to me like "Cathy E" is the only reviewer here who looked at this objectively. The editing on this is a total disaster! It *almost*, as Cathy E said, resembles a hard rock concert, except that, in this case, it even lacks the visual rhythm that most hard rock concerts would have. Digital zooms and pans are used, apparently just because someone was enjoying the new editing toy. The sound is nowhere near what DVD is capable of either. And, as compared to the times I've heard Amy live, this performance borders on lifeless. Unless you're a diehard Amy completist, I really think you should try to find a rental to look at before you decide if you want to buy.
Terrific Album / Disappointing Ediiting Jan 31, 2007
All the comments are accurate that I've read. This is an outstanding album & performance by Amy Grant. I listen to it over and over. The editing is disappointing. Too many camera angles too often. Would have rather had less transitions between performers. Still, it is not as bad as some rock concert DVD's I've seen (ie All Garth Brooks DVDs) so I'll only say it is disappointing.
Excellent career overview Jan 15, 2007
This DVD is a career covering retrospective from Amy. The accompanying musicians are top notch and the acoustic set on the sofa in the middle works well. She mixes her Christian and more secular items well, and has occasional brief introductions to the songs she sings. This is a DVD I thoroughly enjoy and will watch many times.
Good to hear Amy Grant live again after all these years Jan 5, 2007
Amy Grant had two live CDs (reissued as CDs) or LPs in the 70s or rather 1 album but in 2 volumes. She sounded good live in that CD especially the accoustic moments with her and just her guitar. The accoustic set on this new live CD does not sound as sincere and as intimate as it did back in the 70s. Perhaps it was a different era and she was just starting out. Nevertheless it is still good to hear her sing live after all these years. Her pitching is good live as well as on CD for a female voice. I was disappointed with her choice of songs for this live set. The only song I truly enjoy was Simple Things. But overall not a bad live CD.
