Now The Truth Can Be Told (2-CD box set) (1994)

Updated: Mar 13


Now The Truth Can Be Told is a two-disc retrospective compilation album by Christian musician Steve Taylor, released on September 27, 1994 by Sparrow Records.


Featuring over two hours of music, this set contains Taylor's catalog of music from his three Sparrow releases, plus songs from his 1987 Myrrh/Word album I Predict 1990, three songs from his 1991 super group album Chagall Guevara, live performances from his 1986 album Limelight, his holiday track "Winter Wonderland," from the various artists album Christmas, the tracks "Under the Blood" and "Bouquet" from his 1988 single disc compilation collection The Best We Could Find and previously unreleased demos. In the booklet, even though his most recent album Squint was released the previous year, the album is mentioned in the discography section but there are no songs from that album represented in this collection.


Now The Truth Can Be Told is also released on VHS containing seven select music videos, previously unreleased live performances, short films and documentary footage.
