I produced Ed's first Christian album for New Pax, Bob MacKenzie. Would love to get a copy of it....
I could write a book on Ed's first years as a christian and our getting together to do a demo and then Bob M giving me a budget to record "It took a Long time to Get to you". Hope someone can help me find the album, Bob MacKenzie has passed away and Paragon Associates is no longer. I do not know who has New Pax.

Steve, I played songs from Ed's two Christian albums in heavy rotation on "Higher Power", my nightly Christian rock show on WXLN FM-104 in Louisville, KY from 1980-83. No other artist sounded like Ed - great authentic Southern rock that blew away the Christian music establishment back in the day. Am glad to say Ed's music is back on Higher Power every day now on Live365.com. I'll be featuring Ed on my February '11 artist profile that will air every hour - would love any stories you'd care to share. Just e-mail me at rick@higherpowerrock.com.

I've been copying old albums to ipod & cd & my next album is the 1980 Ed Raetzloff. I got it when it was new & it's in great condition, should make a good cd.

Hey Mark, I am just now trying to get a recording of Ed R's first album... I came across that music in the early 80's very "accidentally" (by the Holy Ghost!), a tape someone left laying around at the Bible College I was going to, with no markings on it. I didn't even discover the artist till way later. Please, is there a way I could get a CD copy of that album from you? Will be glad to pay costs. Thank you, Paul

Does anybody have any information as to what Ed is doing now?

I tried to look up contact details for Ed Raetzloff, as provided by Tim Raetzloff, but was bamboozled by how many Nashvilles are in the USA! and how many Ed Raetzloffs there are!
Would desperately love to get ahold of a copy (preferably DVD, but whatever) of It Took a Long Time to Get to You. Believe it or not, I have a 'TAPE' (you heard me!) but nothing to play it on, and am pretty sure it will be unplayable anyway, seeing as how it is 20 years old!
A little help, guys?

Ed is in Nashville. His phone number and address are listed. He still sings.

I found that a lot of postings on the web about Ed misspelled his name. Ratsloff or Ratzloff.

I was able to get this from http://www.one-way.org/
This is a great album. Although released in 1980 it is a timeless work and and is just good listening.

Do you know what Ed is doing today?
