The Archers – Stand Up! – 1979

Stand Up! was The Archers fifth studio album and the first that Janice Archer would take on lead vocals responsibility. The album had lots of well known guest appearances as well as a whos who of studio musicians. I think this was one of their more uptempo albums they put out and this album actually had a bit of a commercial radio sound. “Pickin’ Up The Pieces” peaked at #11 and “Stand Up!” peaked at #9 on the CCM charts. All in all a pretty good album that I actually enjoyed.
