Lay Your Burden Down (Pasture/Pastoral BENJ 220376) 1976 New Zealand *

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lay Your Burden Down

 

 

 

 

 

 

New Zealand Youth For Christ project featuring songs by the 1976 Certain Sounds Team and the 1976 New Zeal Team. Most of the songs have a contemporary gospel ensemble mindset, as you’d predict with titles like ‘It Wouldn’t Be Enough’, ‘Love Lifted Me’ and ‘Because He Lives’. Of slightly greater interest are covers of 2nd Chapter Of Acts. (‘Moming Comes When You Call’) and Chuck Girard (the title track). “Celestial Houses’ is the one track that bucks the trend for a decent small—group Jesus folk-rock sound reminiscent of Dove or Phoenix Sonshine. Arranged and produced by Stephen Bell-Booth. Great cover art.   (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
