Pat Terry Group – Final Vinyl – 1980

This was the final album for The Pat Terry Group but Pat Terry would go on to record 3 rocking albums in the 80’s. It is said that Pat was becoming increasingly disillusioned with the CCM industry and felt it was getting too commercial and stifling his songwriting skills. Apparently he wanted to broaden his songs and slightly reduce the JPM content. So this caused the Pat Terry Group to dissolve? Considering he went on to record several solo albums this explanation of the break up makes no sense at all. Personally I think this had more to do with 2 things. First of all Pat wanted to get away from Newpax records and back to Myrrh. Secondly I think Pat thought the other members of the group were holding him back. It’s obvious he wanted to do more Rock & Roll and the 70’s sound the group was doing wasn’t where he wanted to go. Whatever the reason I think he made the right decision as his solo work is fantastic. That said this album was a good close out for the 70’s. It is a good album but was right at the end of it’s appropriate timeline.
