Galilee – Out Of The Dark – 1986

Galilee formed in Montgomery Alabama in 1984. They released there one and only (on a label) album in 1986. Singing duties were spread though the band which is usually a bad thing but really worked on this album. This was the first album recorded at the new (at the time) Huff brothers studio in Forest Mississippi and also produced by them. Apparently they only spent 3 days in the studio to record the album. Personally I would rather an album recorded in 3 days than 3 weeks, it always seems to come out with an edge I prefer in my music. The band opened across the US for several big names but never headlined themselves. The band has continued on releasing several self released songs and all of them are still active musicians in their respective Churches. This is a solid 80’s pop album with plenty of toe tapping tunes. If I had to pick a favourite track it would be “Get on That Train” which actually feels a little 60’s/70’s to me. Special thanks to Cameron Reeder (Bass) for helping me out with the history of the band.
