Monday evening of August 30, 1999 from 6 P.M to Tuesday August 31, at 1 A.M
21 songs just jamminí for Jesus
as we prayerfully sought the Holy Spirit to inspire us.
Several of the songs had little or no lyrics before we started playing,
18 is here,Ö
Engineer Dave helped us to "Tear down the house",
as he unrehearsed is jamminí with us on rhytmn and lead guitar.
From February 20th 2000 to March 15th 2003 we tried on many occasions to mix this project.
In doing so we put the engineer through a huge patient test,
as when these tapes were put in the recording devices,..
we experiences numerous "mysterious" breakdowns of ADAT & DAT machines,
CD- burners, short circuit in the mixingboard, ground problems with effects.
Problems not present in the studio when mixing secular music.
The Bible says in Ephesians 6:10-20
"our struggle is not againstflesh and blood".
We continually prayed.
About midnight when we were about to give up
after so many nights of trouble,...
when nothing else had worked we went back to basics.
I grabbed a handheld Shure SM 58 microphone,
and mixed the sound "live" in the control room onto a 2 track stereo DAT
while dubbing lead vocals.
When previously trying to EQ the sound we lost the vocals in the mix.
We could never have finished it without the incredible patience
and wonderful help from engineer and dear brother in Christ
James, who in the end volunteered his time for free to finish the recording.
We kept going 2 hours straight,
we only stopped to flip CDís, and it worked,
Praise God !
This was recorded, as you would have experienced it "live".
Itís a raw deal !
Thank you Jeph for being a "live microphone stand" while I ran out of the control room to cough or drink to keep my voice going, and for prayer support and spontanious clapping with James on "Jesus Saves."
It's not a top quality production.
We are fully aware of it's short comings.
Maybe one day,...we'll have more time, money
and better equipment to record on,.. ?
However still we hope you feel the desperate urgency to share Christ and His amazing mercy, grace and love !
Our thanks goes first and foremost to
our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST
We give all glory to Jesus the KING of kings and LORD of lords.
Thanks to Dean and Steve for all the years of faithful service paving the way for blues-rock Gospel music. Brother Pete for faithful prayers and great friendship, Stu and Lucille and all the folks at the other coffeehouses for letting us play. Annie for reminding us to have faith in God. Glenn for sweet prayers @ Cornerstone Florida 2003, and your inspiration as preacher, musician, and author.
Ilya for the artwork on the front cover.
Thanks to all family and friends, who kept up with us rockiní for the Lord.
Finally we thank you for listening to this presentation of the Gospel of Jesus through music.
The best way we know how to thank you is by offering the free gift of salvation by Godís grace and mercy.
There is nothing more important in your life than to know Jesus on a personal level. !!!
If you donít already know Jesus as your Lord and Savior ?
Then we highly recommend that you ask Jesus into your heart
right now, and surrender your life to the LORD.
Salvation comes by faith in Jesus only. Itís the only way to heaven.
