Re: Unseen Power Review

I like the album quite a bit. It was actually one of the first Petra albums I heard. But to be honest, I don't think it works as well as others as a whole. Lots of great songs that don't feel as cohesive as, say, Beyond Belief . I would probably rank the songs as this... 1. "Dance" 2. "Destiny" 3. "...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Well, I guess is as good a thread as any to wish you all a Merry Christmas! Hope you all have a good time these days.

Re: Petra Compete Tour list - help add missing dates.

I suppose this is as best a thread as any to post it, but check out this bit from this 2005 concert...

This is the first time I've seen Hartman and Bailey do that "robotic" thing during the song. I thought it was hilarious!

Re: John Lawry Interview

Thanks to all for the kind words. I really enjoyed the chat with John, so I'm glad I could translate that into the transcript so you could enjoy it too.

Re: CPR

If you're going to church to be entertained then you're going for the wrong reasons. That's not what I said. So you disagree with my statement? No, I agree. You don't go to church to be entertained, but you CAN be entertained at church. Now do you think that you can be entertained at church? or tha...

Re: CPR

So I guess the question is, what makes Petra, Petra? Is it just a name? I think both Hartman and Schlitt have answered a similar question in separate occasions. Hartman has said: "It is always hard to change personnel but Petra is different from just a music group. It is a ministry that the members...

Re: CPR

Don't we have documentation somewhere that at some point in the mid to late 90's Bob H. said that he actually turned over control of the day-to-day running of the band to John Schlitt? I thought I had read that somewhere....I could be wrong....anyone else remember something similar? I remember that...

Re: CPR

Petra is known primarily through two line-ups: Volz, Hartman, Slick, Kelly, Weaver and Schlitt, Hartman, Lawry, Cates, Weaver Those are the only two line-ups that stuck around long enough to really make an impact. Most of the post- Wake Up Call members weren't around long enough for anybody but the...

Re: CPR

First of all, Ronny Cates wished me a happy birthday today. Yay! Second, I totally forgot what this thread was about, and I'm the one who started it. I think I was just trying to find out any info about CPR because, from what I've read over the years, some of you have the inside scoop. I'm excited ...

Re: CPR

Well, there are even fewer fans of those first couple of albums now than there were when they were released. There were so few fans buying them, that Bob was eating the cost of making the records and was about to quit as a result. If Bob was going to quit, because things sucked so bad, yeah....I th...

Re: CPR

The logic is quite simple. None of those guys were a part of the history of the iconic Petra. They were not a part of creating the brand. Most people had an interest in Petra because of what they had been. John was the link to the historical Petra along with Louie. John hired and fired the other me...
