I remember a series of Alas Smith And Jones where each episode ended with said comedians dressed as 70s nightclub singers at Bontempi keyboard and bass guitar, playing the show out in the appropriate style to match their dress. On listening to this tape I had a strange sense of deja vu. Graham Daw is half of Agape, a group formed in 1992, and involved in outreach and worship. 'Proclaiming Peace' is a collection of old worship songs sung over a weak keyboard/rhythm accompaniment. The sometimes flat vocals have a mildly irritating American tinge to them, the timing of which at times has also been stretched using "artistic license". Okay, two songs appear to have been written by the aforementioned Agape, but apart from that this is a low budget attempt at I don't know what, to be honest. Sorry Graham, but not much worth listening to here.
