The Best of the Early Years (1997)

The Best of the Early Years is a 1997 compilation album of Christian singer -songwriter Carman. Released on the Harmony Records label, this collection contains 12 of his best tracks from his two early 1980s releases, Some-O-Dat

and Sunday's On the Way. Both albums were reissued on CD in the early 1990s by Word Records but both, as well as this collection, have all since been out of print.

A YouTube link to listen to the album is posted below this article.
