Christian Rhythm Festival


(Click on image for larger view)

Here's a CD-R compilation that Ed Nadorozny has put together for the garagepunk.com forum members. Yep! It's Christian-themed rock and roll from the 'sixties! Ed's similar retrospective on THE PILGRIMS was top-notch, so I have high hopes for this one as well.

I made up the above insert in anticipation of receiving the disc. Here's the track listing along with some brief notes from Ed:

1. Crusaders -Come on 1965 London group unreleased
2. Crossbeats-Busy man 1965 Liverpool Pilgrim label

27. Peacemakers- Why 1967 Evangelical Label Lp
28. Crusaders- Let me tell you 1966 ? unreleased .
29. Crusaders- Had to turn away 1966? unreleased.

Notes:

The Cusaders cuts were sent in as demos to Herald records but group was turned down by label.

Tonny Mossop had a hit in the 70's with Red Red wine.

Members of the Crusaders & Soul Seekers & Pilgrims formed a group in 1969 called "Out of darkness".

The Soul Seekers were British Jamaicans

Thanks for visiting my blog. I was returning the favor and got real stoked about this CD. How do I get a copy?

I'm all for anything recorded by teenagers around 1966. And I never even thought about Christian garage music. A whole new world awaits! (How many times have I griped about the music I hear at church?)

Also interested in getting a copy. How do I do so? I've enjoyed the Crossbeats MP3s I downloaded from their site.
