Out Of Darkness – Out Of Darkness – 1970

Out Of Darkness is without a doubt one of the OG Jesus Music bands. Unfortunately they were not initially released in North America so I’m not to sure how many of us from this side of the pond would have heard of them. They were together from 1968 to 1974 and recorded 2 albums. This one was released in 1970 and the second one wasn’t released until 1993 when Plankton Records got heir paws on the live recording. Bruce Duncan and Tim Anderson had previously worked on Pauline Filby’s 1969 album “Show Me A Rainbow” so yes we’re talking about the OG of Christian music here. This album has more of a progressive rock sound than most 70’s Jesus Music and quite frankly stands out from the crowd because of it. If you’re a fan of 70’s music you will love this one.

  1. I left my ear pods at home today. So I’m just going to have to wait to listen to it later. I am thinking of just playing it in the health class I am subbing for, but I finally got them quiet again. It sounds like it will be a Baja Blast to listen to. P.S. you said OG of Christina music. You may want to fix it in post.
