I Only Want to See You There (1983)

Updated: Apr 28


I Only Want to See You There is the first posthumous compilation album of

Christian singer - songwriter Keith Green, released on March 21, 1983 by Sparrow Records. The album is compiled and produced by Bill Maxwell. The title comes from Green's track "Song to My Parents" in which he introduces the song and talks about his parents blending into the studio track of the song from his 1977 album For Him Who Has Ears to Hear. This collection is pretty much like his first compilation album The Keith Green Collection where some of the songs were blended with live performances and talking with studio recordings, with some tracks remixed just for this album.


I Only Want to See You There was assembled and remixed by Winn Kutz at Mama Jo's in North Hollywood, California. "Introduction by Keith" and "My Eyes Are Dry" was orchestrated by Harlen Rogers and conducted by Phil Perkins with the National Philharmonic Orchestra, recorded in London, England at Olympic Studio. The album art cover was illustrated by James Henry with art direction by Stan Everson Design. The album climbed to number 4 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart. I Only Want to See You There is currently out-of-print and is not available digitally. A YouTube link to listen to the album is posted below this article.
