Great minds...? Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

I agree with the Commander. Not on this board!

I had a feeling someone else would have come up with the Beatles reference. I was just too lazy to read all 7 pages of posts...

How did you find DA? Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

I told this story before, but here goes my heart again,

Summer 1980, in a VW van going to Baylor U for a youth retreat. The guitarist from the church band drove and played the first two 8 tracks by DA. After that I found HD and I looked for them in ever Christian bookstore I could find. When the Internet began to blossum, I found Kevin's DA webpage, then J&E Mark Heard web page which I beleive traded music or tapes or something.

For now I am here, seen the band once at CS 2000, Great! Awesome!

I came to DA via the Swirling Eddies. Someone in the high school group at church let me borrow Outdoor Elvis, and I loved it! It wasn't until 4 or 5 years later that the music buyer at the Christian bookstore I worked at told me about DA and that it was the same people as the Eddies. From that moment I was a committed TT/DA fan.

OK, I suppose after my snarky first post I should do one for real.

My friend James came up to me in '82 raving about band called "Daniel Amos" he'd seen at the Ichthus festival. "In one of their songs, their guitar player played the part of a tidal wave," James explained, "and he kept bouncing up and down until he acually jumped off the stage!" (again this was '82 and things like that just didn't happen at Christian concerts in Kentucky).

He had also procured an 8-track tape called "Horrendous Disc," the opening guitar lick of which he had learned. I instantly demanded that he teach it to me too. We had to dub it to a cassette because, as the geezers on this board know, you can't rewind an 8-track to learn guitar licks.

That same year, on a youth choir trip, we found "Alarma" in a cutout bin of a Christian record store that obviously had no idea what to do with the newly-released record. We both bought copies (around $2.00 each, I believe) and absolutely devoured it.

Rock on, Jerry.

In 77 I was born.

My dad was born in 55, so he was right in the demographic crosshairs when Shotgun Angel was released and Horrendous Disk was recorded. When Alarma! and HD came out he went right out and bought 'em. so my diapers were changed to Shotgun Angel. He also had several albums by Bruce Cockburn and Mark Heard, respectively, an album called Mourning to Dancing by a really obscure CCM artist named James Ward, Welcome to Paradise by Randy Stonehill and a Larry Norman something-or-other. I grew up in Oregon and have fond memories of driving to Disneyland for the first time listening to SA over and over. My dad was in a cover band and he played Alarma! for their bass player who said "If we ever sound like that I'll kill myself".
Time passed and the da records grew dusty... Anyway when I turned 16 my dad started teaching me guitar. I had a turntable set up in my room because it was the format all our old Cockburn stuff was on. Anyway I had the our three da albums in there too and listened to HD over and over. It reminded me of Zeppelin and The Beatles, oddly.
Time passed, my brother, my dad and I still played Cockburn but forgot da. Anyway, in our family business's warehouse I heard my brother singing a James Ward song, ("for to me to live is Jesus Christ/and to die would be so much better"), which played at my aunt's funeral when I was about five. The power of the memory was downright evocative, so I asked my dad whose song it was. It was through that that I rediscovered all the old albums my dad and I had stored away somewhere. I started recording all the vinyl to hard drive, cleaning up the noise and bouncing the stuff to CD. I became insatiable. I started looking for da, (and Steve Taylor and Mark Heard, etc.), we'd missed on ebay and spent a small fortune getting it. I can now happily report that I bought the final four da studio albums I had yet to get, (Motorcycle [CD], Kalhoun [CD], Fearful Symmetry [SS Vinyl] and Daniel Amos/Jubal's Last Band [pre-release]). I even bought songs from the Neverhood for my kids and me Smile . I have not heard the Swirling Eddies, Lost Dogs, Terry Scott Taylor solo, or Farmbeetles stuff but I will eventually, (after a brief respite for my pocket-book to recover).

whew
I collapse against the keyboard and pant at the massive effort the storytelling took.

Yeah, I talk about my dad a lot. He was a huge influence on me. In terms of who I am, how I behave, what music I like, how I approach learning new things, where to hide the bodies...

Thanks everybody! I was starting to feel old as I approached the last year of my twenties, but now I see it could be a lot worse! Big Grin

Well, I'll come out and say it I will be 50 in December and would love to see some new music
from DA, or the Lost Dogs by then. I find myself getting more cranky and impatient as the years go by, so if I seem to be badgering Terry and the boys, remember I'm going to be 50. Now DAmmit Terry let's go with some more stuff, .......see what I mean.
