Quickflight – Decent Beat – 1983

This was the second, and last, album from Quickflight. After their first album their record label, Tunesmith, closed their doors and Quickflight had to find a new label.

They found a new home at Star Song and this album was on its way. They headed into Little Mountain Sound Studios in Vancouver, BC to record this album.

It was one of the first Christians recorded in digital format and was recorded almost entirely using synthesizers and sequencers. The result was a pretty distinctive sound for the time. New wave was in but this recording style made this album stand out.

Quickflight – Breakaway – 1980

Quickflight were a Canadian CCM band and this was their introductory album.

The style is the typical New Wave style of the time, however they actually did a much better job than the others. Considering this album came out in 1980 it was actually well ahead of the curve as far as CCM music went. To the best of my knowledge this album was only released in Canada.

1 – Breakaway Into – 1:00
2 – Breakaway – 3:03
3 – Pink Shirts – 3:03
4 – Atheist – 3:03
5 – Feelin’ Sad – 3:27
6 – O. K. – 2:33
7 – Shuttle – 2:22
8 – Modern Romans – 3:00
9 – Rendezvous – 2:51
