Gene Eugene and Keith Green tribute albums to be released Stateside

TWO MODERN rock tribute albums celebrating Christian music pioneers, Gene Eugene and Keith Green, have been released in the States. Galaxy 21 Music, a label started by the The Choir's Dan Michaels, has released 'A Tribute To Gene Eugene', comprised of songs from a Cornerstone concert last summer dedicated to Gene, who died last March. Contributors include Michael Knott, Mike Rowe and Riki Michele.

BEC Recordings are releasing their Keith Green tribute, 'Start Right Here', in May. 12 songs from the repertoire of the Jesus music pioneer are given a rock makeover by, amongst others, Starfly 59, Bleach and Element 101. CR
