Portrait (1986)

Portrait is a 1986 compilation album by Scottish Christian singer - author Sheila Walsh on Sparrow Records. This collection features ten of Walsh's best songs including the track "Star Song (There Is Born A Child)." The track was only released on the U.S. version of War of Love, but is now available for the first time for the U.K. market on vinyl. The album was then reissued on CD in 1988 and was part of the Compact Favorites series featuring former and current artists on the Sparrow label with the same track listing. Walsh had signed with Word Records for her next album Shadowlands.

NOTE: Portrait/Compact Favorites is the only compilation album by Sheila Walsh that is available digitally.
