Overview

Release Date:07/10/2015;Notes:Limited vinyl LP pressing, the first legitimate vinyl reissue of these Jesus-Rock pioneers' ground-breaking 1973 LP. Full liner notes with rare clippings and photos. Cut from uncompressed, un-equalized transfers of the original analog master tapes-heaven for your ears! With beginnings firmly in the secular realm and a strong following in the Northwest, Wilson McKinley signed to Alshire Records (home of 101 Strings) and recorded one album under the label's 'Acid-Rock' moniker, The California Poppy Pickers. But then they met street minister Carl Parks, gave up the Rock 'n' Roll lifestyle and effectively ended the first incarnation of the group. Parks encouraged the remaining band members to pick up their instruments again to create music for a street meeting, and thus the first 'Jesus Rock' group was born. The first Wilson McKinley LP, 1970's Live On Stage, was a slapdash effort on all fronts and is generally dismissed by everyone involved. Chastened by their debut, Wilson McKinley took a more focused approach to Spirit Of Elijah: the result was a major leap forward, and a faithful representation of their massive talent. Buoyed by the confidence developed during the Spirit Of Elijah sessions, Wilson McKinley's third LP maintains the quality songwriting but adds even better production values. It was housed in a suitable-for-black-light jacket printed with neon inks. This album is day-glo-adorned proof of their rapidly-developing skills and musical interests-Wilson McKinley's most adventurous effort, boasting entirely original tunes and complex, heavy arrangements at times reminiscent of the Allman Brothers.;Track List:1.
