A special note from Liberation Suite about his release:
Hi! Just so you know before you purchase this CD... This is a CDR*. It looks just like a normal CD and it sounds just like a normal CD. The cover for this re-release has been professionally designed. The disc is not a label - it has been physically printed on in 4-color and looks great. The sound is great.
We found a virgin vinyl copy of this release (the original masters went bye-bye somewhere in England) and had it remastered digitally. Check out the sound samples on this page that features this album and judge for yourself...we think you''ll like the result. If for some reason you hate it (what?!!), our distributor, CD Baby will refund your hard earned bucks. Thanks for listening and your support!
*What’s a CDR? A CD-R (Compact Disc-Recordable) is a variation of the Compact Disc invented by Philips and Sony. CD-R is a Write Once, Read Many optical media (though the whole disk does not have to be entirely written in the same session) and retains a high level of compatibility with standard CD readers.

What do you do if you’ve got this really great Christian rock band from San Marcos, Texas and nobody in U.S. Christendom thinks the market is ready for you? Well, first you work in a “tent” ministry and then you head for England where you find all kinds of work waiting for you and you have an opportunity to reach out to all kinds of people -- like Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland and audiences at the Royal Albert Hall. Then you sign with this new English label called Chapel Lane and make an album. Of course somebody mixes back the music and files the rough edges off the rock when you’re out of the studio, figuring no one in the U.S. will distribute it otherwise. And then you come back to L.A. with your LP under your arms and everybody thinks you are an English band. In fact, no matter how many people you tell about your southwestern origins, they just don’t listen. So you finally decide to move back to Texas. The nearby Christian record company, Star Song, finally decides to distribute your new album. (By this time, a whole year has passed since you recorded it, but, luckily, you were far enough ahead of the U.S. Christian music scene that it really doesn’t matter. And besides, you have a sound all your own.)
Anyway, Barry Bynum has this wonderful voice and writes these beautiful songs. And Jim Hazel can play lead guitar. And Howard Lyon also has a great voice and plays, get this, rock trombone. And Randy Hill does beat dem drums. And Fred Perez (who decided to stay in L.A.) plays an Ampegpatch 2000 bass guitar synthesizer and sings. Sometimes they all sound a little like Chicago or Boston or New Orleans or Kansas, but maybe that’s just because they’re from Texas via Los Angeles via London. Anyway, they believe in the Lord and play majestic rock.

Originally a Texas band, these old friends have been playing the U.K., and this import album has the British feel. Though harder in concert, for this light rock album, Liberation has muted the brass and de-emphasized the hard intrumental edge. But the lead singer has a raspy seasoned voice that adds spice to the catchy tunes; among them: “Lay Your Sadness Down,” “How Do I Get To You,” “You Are Worthy.”
