Lift Up Your Hands (Cornerstone C80030) 1979?

 

 

Male/female pop-flavored light rock custom featuring a line-up of piano, synthesizer, acoustic and electric guitars, bass and drums. Some bouncy fast-paced songs (‘Give Your Heart’, ‘Take Me Lord’), crossing over into an almost robotic new wave beat for ‘Fishernan’s Song’. Artsy melodic guitar/synth/piano interplay on ‘Walk On The Water’ and ‘Sonshine’. ‘Quiet Nights’ and ‘I’ve Been Lucky’ are both sincere ballads, while ‘Today And Forever’ closes the album on a sunshiny acoustic> America-like note (including a fine electric guitar solo). Light brass on a couple songs. Not a big cutting edge thing, but still a rather pleasant unique homemade kind of a sound All material composed by member Eugene Hollis. Same small Oklahoma Christian label as Solid Rock’s Change Of Heart. The group also had a more ccm-ish album in 1981 called From Here To Kingdom Come. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Ken for the front cover photo.
