Enter Into His Gates (CSS-284)  1978?

 

 

Enter Into His Gates is a custom production of Christian Prison Ministries, Inc. “dedicated to all of the men and women of the world who are behind prison walls”.  Selections like the country-edged ‘The Convicts Song’ touch on this theme.  Craig plays guitar, piano and bass here, joined by four others for a couple uncluttered small band rock, folkrock and ballads sound.  In the latter category are  a couple decent Bruce Cockburn-like acoustic songs: ‘Come Unto Me’ and the instrumental ‘Smooth Sailing’.  A few quiet tunes backed by gentle electric guitar and synth string ensemble.  The electric guitar becomes more aggressive  on ‘You Must Be Born Again’, an excellent up-tempo rock track.  Seven songs written by Craig plus covers of ‘We Have Come Into His House’ and ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.      (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
