Youth Choir

           In the Christian book and music store in the gaudy shopping mall at Heritage U.S.A., the showcase land development project created by PTL evangelists Jim and Tammy Bakker, I was looking through the cassettes (that what I was buying back then in the mid 80s).  I ran across a cassette by a group called the Youth Choir.  I bypassed that one then.

         A couple years later the group had apparently realized that no one stays young forever and dropped "Youth" to become just The Choir.  I took a chance on one of their albums and found that it was my kind of music.  The alt rock band had a moody psychedelic sound that was flowing and dreamy, but wasn't afraid to let some rocking happen now and then.

       Now I own several Choir CDs and cassettes (yes, I still have some of those relics that are playable).  The Choir's music has given me hours of listening pleasure at home and accompanied me on many a road trip.  The Choir members are now seasoned and respected artists who were once Youths.
