Greenbelt Live! (Marshalls MRT 1001) 1979 UK *

 

 

Cool album of live performances from Britain’s Greenbelt festival. It’s full rock-and-roll mode for many of your favorite Jesus music heavyweights, including Bryn Haworth (‘Working For Love’), Garth Hewitt (‘May You Live To Dance (On Your Own Grave)’), Cliff Richard (‘Yes, He Lives’), Randy Stonehill (‘Good News’) and Larry Norman (‘Let The Tape Keep Rolling’), all of whom have a full band accompanying. Also rocking strong are Giantkiller with ‘Kingdom Come’ and Swedish blues-rockers Vatten with ‘Dreamer’. One of the more obscure bands in the lineup is the energetic rock/soul outfit Kainos with a surging rendition of ‘Put A Little Love In Your Heart’. Also includes performances by Lamb (‘l’m Going To Build My World Around You’) and Aleksander John (‘Bittersweet Song’). Deluxe packaging includes fancy green vinyl, gate-fold cover, a poster and a 24 page color booklet with commentary, bios, discographies and photos. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
