This is a strange compilation. Michael English released only two albums before this release. It's extremely rare, if ever, for an artist to warrant a compilation after only two albums. Eight of the ten tracks on Healing came from the two predecessors, and one track actually ends up on Healing's successor, Freedom. The title track, a duet with Wynonna Judd, is the only song not contained on another of his original releases. Michael English lived through some personal difficulties around the time of the release of this album, but the reason for the release of this compilation is a mystery. Nevertheless, all ten tracks are fine songs, and English is a great pop vocalist.
