Servant – Shallow Water – 1979

Shallow Water is the debut album by Servant Released in 1979. It was engineered by the now famous Bob Rock and you can definitely hear his influence. The lead track “Shallow Water” was questioned by a lot of listeners as an appropriate opening track but the album gets stronger as you listen. The album had strong social awareness lyrics, something that would be a Servant trademark in future albums. Servant’s subsequent tours became something of legend as they used cutting edge effects and technology which was relatively rare in the early 80’s of Christian music.
