If you've yet to catch up on the idiosyncratic offerings of one of Christendom's great record producers and occasional artists Gary S Paxton, this CD re-issue of a 1978 album is worth searching out. Although some of the pop rock arrangements have dated considerably, his highly provocative lyrics are always of interest with such numbers as "Will There Be Hippies In Heaven?", "Take Your Turf For God" and, best of all, "Fat Christians" well worth a play even today. Most powerful of all is the anti-abortion song "The Big 'A' = The Big 'M'". One would have to admit that Gary's rather maudlin treatment of "Blessed Assurance" is something of an acquired taste but with 16 tracks this oldie is well worth searching out.
