Colin Pye is a Baptist minister in Bucks and also part of the band Redsun. This is a bit of a side project as he has created some songs for a children's event called Lighthouse. The first 10 songs on this CD are written for children and contain fairly typical kids' fare - simple songs, cheesy arrangements and kiddy vocals. There's plenty of action songs to focus the attention and although I am sure that these work in the live setting of the event or elsewhere, I am not convinced that they translate well to CD. The low budget production doesn't help and it also hampers Colin's grown up songs which make up the second half of this 17 track release.

I entirely agree with Dorothy's comments above. I wish there was a way of getting these songs again I really like this album

We use this a lot, but it's beginning to wear out!!
I know the CD is no longer available, but is there any chance of downloads of individual songs becoming available?
