Gospel Seed – Growing – 1977

Gospel Seed only released one album that I can find though it appears they did have a cassette demo in 1975. The band were mainly comprised of Gary Luttrell and Mike Moore . They called in some studio musicians for the album and notable in those musicians was Don Gerber who was in Darrell Mansfield’s original band Gentle Faith. The band toured extensively around the United States playing anywhere they could to spread the message. They also had appearances on the 700 Club and The PTL Club which was a pretty big deal at the time. They are/were a great duo who’s vocals worked well together. The album has a deep 70’s sound but was actually pretty high quality for a one album band.

One thought on “Gospel Seed – Growing – 1977”

  1. Gary Luttrell had an enormous impact on my young spiritual life when I was in college in 1984. I listened to this cassette tape over and over again and even found it again in a box within the last several years. It is sad to know that Gary walked away from the church and his faith and is literally nowhere to be found. Mike went forward in his call to serve God and pastors a huge church in the Central Valley of California. I am so looking forward to calling back to Gary and thanking him for helping me establish my walk with God.
