    1978-1980

  • "Around 1978-1980, when DA performed live, Ed McTaggart & Alex MacDougall both had drum sets, but Alex stayed mainly at the huge percussion area he had. He had some pretty strange looking home-made instruments, also. Seems like he had milk jugs, with BB's, sand, something in them. It made for an interesting evening just to watch what Alex would start hitting on next!"(Source: M.L. Brock (DADL))

  • Terry: "We had this idea, this thing we were doing at the time, called 'Preachers From Outer Space.' It was a live shtick, which included several songs, 'Mary Baker Eddy' and 'Secret Scripts In 3-D Glasses', and we had each created our own costumes for this thing. We had a pajama party one night at Alex MacDougall's and we all wore our costumes, which was hilarious. Randy was there, Larry, Tom Howard, all of us. We had our pajamas on and went to 7-11's and things like that, and had sort of a weird, strange night. Well, Larry lost it, he thought it was the funniest thing he'd ever seen. When we did Horrendous Disc he asked to take some pictures of us in our costumes. We said 'we're not using those for the album art,' and he said 'oh, no. I just want to take some pictures.' Well, they got into the album, that inside photo. That was fine, it came out great, but it was Larry's idea. And we were told it wouldn't happen. The real frustration began to grow as there were so many delays. We had nothing personal against Larry, it was just that we had recorded our record and we wanted it out."

  • The band began working on it's third album in what was then known as Maranatha Studios (now Whitefield Studios) in Santa Ana. The project was quickly finished by the summer and one bright summer day not long after, the CCM Magazine Publisher, John Styll sat in that very same studio and actually heard the Horrendous Disc in it's entirety. In fact, the band recorded more than enough for an album... and later made their final choices for the "Horrendous Disc" tracks. On this date, basic tracks were recorded for "On The Line."
    Alex: "We recorded the basic tracks for Horrendous in our pajamas (seems to be a theme), and locked all visitors out (how very rock and roll!). We even had a sign on the studio door claiming the sessions to be locked and that wewere xenophobic!"
    Marty: "I don't remember much but I do remember recording 'I love You #19' and 'Tidal Wave' at Whitefield Studios with Thom Roy engineering, not Mike Stone."

  • While the band was recording Horrendous Disc for Maranatha!, Chuck Fromm set it up for DA to take the album to another label. Maranatha! was going through a time of adjustment, they were getting more into the Praise and childrens records. Daniel Amos left on good terms and with Maranatha!'s blessing.
    Marty: "We had already recorded everything on HD. The only thing left to do was mix it and do the art work. After we finished all the work in the studio, we started meeting with all the different labels that showed interest in us."

  • There have been rumors over the years that the band nearly called it quits at this time. In reality, this was just gossip.
    Terry: "There was never any consideration of disbanding. While true that we had left Maranatha! Music, we were actively seeking a new recording contract, and we were always on the road. Obviously, even having an album unreleased for several years didn't break up the band, which attests to the bands commitment..."

    Mid-Fall 1978

  • Demos for the following songs were recorded during this time on four track in 'the old Rebel Base Rehearsal Studio': "I Need You" (later retitled "So Certain" - Taylor), "I get around" (Wilson), "You always run away from love" (Cook), "As long as I live" (Taylor), "I'm On Your Team" (Taylor), "I love you" (later retitled "I Love You #19" - Taylor). (Note: the Fall '78 demos for all but "So Certain" and "I'm On Your Team" were later released on "Preachers from Outer Space".)
    Jerry: "We gave ILY the #19 designation because Terry and I took a trip down to our local record shop and perused the yellow-paged directory of recorded music that used to perch atop the counters of major record stores in America. I remember counting the number of songs listed with the title, "I Love You". There were 18 listed at that time..."

    Terry: "I'm On Your Team" was a song that was really kept alive by fan requests. It was one of those songs that was written during the Horrendous Disc sessions, and for some reason it didn't go on the record. It was written in response to some of the criticism that got heaped on the band in that Horrendous Disc era when we began to shed the country clothes of the first two albums. I remember the first time we performed that song, it was in Hawaii and we were there with the Calvary Chapel pastor. We were getting a little flak for what we were doing, so we included that song in every set as kind of an answer back. (Source: Brian Quincy Newcomb in "The HRS-Terry Taylor Interview Part One")

  • Although initially interested in a deal offered by Curb-Warner, DA decided not to take the contract because it turned out to be...
    Ed: "a good contract, but not the kind of thing we wanted."

  • The band was soon signed to Street Level Productions.
    Terry: "Al (Alex MacDougall) had toured with Randy Stonehill and knew Larry Norman. Al said we were getting a lot more serious about touring, what we ought to do is approach Street Level and see if they would book us. We talked to the people and they said they wanted to book us, but about a week later we were told that it had been their policy only to book Solid Rock artists. To us, that was a switch, they'd changed it. So it was decided, Larry would put us on Solid Rock, and he'd go ahead and get us the secular deal, and Street Level would book us. It looked like a beautiful package, and we bought into it. We signed all the contracts, and then came the delays.
    Larry: "...At the time, I really didn't think me signing Daniel Amos to the Warner Brothers/Curb contract would be the best thing spiritually for some of the members of DA." (quoted from Larry Norman's "Blue Book", although Daniel Amos turned down the Warner-Curb deal before signing with Solid Rock/Street Level)

    1978-80

  • While waiting for HD to come out, DA went back into the studio a number of times and recorded around 20 new songs as demos on either 4-track or 24-track, including: "So Certain", "Laisez-Faire", "UFO", "Tonight", "Twilight love" (A live version of this song was later released as a bonus track on "Our Personal Favorite World Famous Hits), "Hello Aloha", "The Wonder Is You", "Talk", "I'll Be Right Here Waiting", "Cinema Girl", "She Gets To Me", "Noelle", "Taking A Fall", and "Weather Girl".
    Daniel Amos shopped many of these demos around to mainstream record companies.
    (Note: "Happily Married Man" was NOT recorded at this time, as was reported in Karen Marie Platt's March 1981 CCM Article, "Whatever Happened to Horrendous Disc." The sessions for that track can be found in the timeline under "1977")

  • Tim Chandler and Derri Daugherty play in Dwight Thompson's band every Wednesday night on Paul & Jan Crouch's program on TBN.

  • Daniel Amos' first and only "News-O-Rama" is mailed out.
