ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Only 500 copies of this self-produced groundbreaking Christian record were issued in 1974. The 'Encyclopedia of Contemporary Christian Music (Mark Allan Powell - (c)2002)' says this record "..incorporates both acoustic folk rock songs typical of the Jesus music genre and more electric songs that defy its conventions."

'Jesus Music' magazine compared the sound of several songs on the Dayspring album to Phil Keaggy's early band Glass Harp, and songs from the record received airplay on several FM stations through in Cleveland and Upstate NY.

Ken Scott's 'Archivist 4th Edition' says "Good job in the production yet holds to a totally homemade and primitive sound with jammin' acoustic bluesy folkrocking maneuvers in the league of Randy Matthews, Ron Moore, and Mike Johnson, sometimes choosing to handle all the instruments himself as in the magical 'I was in the Spirit'."

The song "Gospel Ship" is pure 70's funk and "Rock of Ages" is electric Blues with a raw Roadhouse vibe.
