Deliverance – Tightrope – 1979

This was the final album from the Janz family known as Deliverance. Born in Canada of Mennonite descent they actually formed in Germany.

Though this album came out in 1979 it is not Jesus Music. In fact it is a blend of Disco and fusion and actually sounds a lot like the Bee Gee’s to me. Unfortunately this was the last album as there was some sort of a dispute with the record company. Anyway if you only have time for one cut I suggest the title track “Tightrope”.
