Recorded live at the crest of the Jesus movement at Explo ‘72 in Dallas, TX. Armageddon Experience proves they can rock out, more so than anything on their studio album. Also going beyond their studio work is Andrae Crouch and the Disciples’ powerful performance of ‘Satisfied’. Whew! You can almost feel the sweat (James Brown move over!). Randy Matthews and Larry Norman also appear armed with only guitars and vocal cords. Great Commission Company, Danny Lee & The Children Of Truth, and The Forerunners deliver in the lots-of—happy groovy—people-with-homs department. Appealing to the older crowd (read: traditional gospel) are Connie Smith and The Spear Family. Willa Dorsey supplies the black gospel number. Appealing to the hippies is Love Song and appealing to everyone is Johnny Cash who’s shown raising his hand with Billy Graham on the cover. Speaking of the cover, there are a lot of ‘70s flashbacks in the photos: wild colorful pop art, the Pepsi logo replaced with the word ‘Jesus’ bearing the slogan “Jesus has a lot to give”. One way signs. Was this the Christian Woodstock? (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
