It Took A Long Time To Get To You (NewPax 33078) 1980








Ed Raetzloff - It took a long time to get to You








The NewPax label’s honorable venture into the Southern rock market. Ed had paid his dues in a group called Blue Jug, recording a couple mid— ’70s big-label albums and making the rounds with bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers, and Charlie Daniels Band. As you might expect this recording has a slightly more cleaned-up “Christian rock” sound than his secular counterparts; nevertheless, it often kicks some serious butt, much more than you’d expect from a guy in a white shirt, tie and suspenders. Some fine boogie and blues jamming alongside rural-aired classic rock. A couple quieter acoustic numbers but thankfully no token MOR ballads. Includes a reference to “that fine Columbian”, in the context of a BC lifestyle naturally. Released a second album in 1981 called Drivin’ Wheels.
