John Mehler – Bow and Arrow – 1982

This was the first solo album from John Mehler. John cut his teeth in the music industry playing with 70’s Jesus Music band Love Song.

Side note Chuck Girard was also in Love Song. This album is a mix of praise songs and Rock & Roll. It’s kind of disjointed in my opinion, but the quality of music is very high.

Phil Keaggy supplied lead guitar for the album so that definitely helps its quality. Mehler is a very accomplished drummer and you can hear his talent on Little Drummer Boy. All in all a pretty darn good album.
