CCC Oxford Falls is a church in Sydney, Australia - apparently a big church incorporating a school of creative arts. This worship session was recorded in September 1997, however given the style you may be fooled into thinking it was 10 years older. The intro brought back memories of Sly Stallone running up a mountain in Rocky IV, and the style does little to develop from there on. Unfortunate, as the songwriting skills and level of aptitude of the musicians are what you would expect from an obviously growing and Spirit-filled church. In my opinion it is the arrangements that let the whole thing down. If you are a fan of Ron Kenoly, Huey Lewis And The News, Kenny G and the '90s in general, you'll like this. Maybe it's a cultural thing, but you could probably find a similar product in your dad's CD rack.
