Re: TUOSS new project soon!

Well, in their defense, albums don't move the sales needle anymore, especially for indie artists. The only reason to do an album is artistic freedom. Heck, the only reason to release anything is artistic freedom. There isn't much money in it.

Re: 50th anniversary concert!

I really wish they had the money (and the fan interest) to have done a proper send off show with a concert video and live album. Oh well, that's the Christian music industry for you. Old bands get no respect. I think there aren't enough old farts with money to spend who know they are still around. ...

Re: RIP Carman Licciardello

Wow. The old thread revived. I might be the only one, but I really didn't like the Carman tune with Petra. That whole God has been removed from the classroom thing is a tired argument. It's made by people who wrap the US flag around the cross of Christ and sell it as one thing. That is not the reaso...

Re: Petra back to the rock 3

If the money was on the table, he probably would. Those are Bob's songs and they are very Volz like.

Re: Petra back to the rock 3

The only way the second CPR record got down was by a handful of people giving them the money, and the guys worked for free. So, if someone here wants to cough up 25k or so, I am sure they could motivate the guys. If I had the money, I would pay for Volz to track the whole Back To The Street record. ...

Re: Petra back to the rock 3

Nah. I doubt they will. It is too hard to recoupe expenses. With the global economy being what it is, it will be harder than it was pre covid. Any new and original music will be written by Greg for the most part. You can hear his music on his solo releases.

Re: Petra cassettes

Have your CDs recorded onto tape. Don't get rid of them. What will you do WHEN you have drop-out, or your machine eats the tape? Tapes are inferior in every way to CDs. They have much lower stereo channel separation and signal-to-noise. They have print-through effect (which is when you hear a phanto...

Re: Petra should have a greatest hits album.

They don't have any more hits to keep all of the greatest hits albums from being the same. Oh, they have been remastered and such, but they aren't necessarily better than another. Besides, all you need to do is burn your own, stream your own playlist, etc. No reason to purchase anything.

Re: Which albums actually feature Louie's drumming?

My recollection of the conversations was sequencing of the songs was done first, and then the live drum tracks were added as overdubs on top of the sequences, click tracks, etc. Back in the day, before Steven Slate Drums, EZ Drummer and all of the stuff we have today, it wasn't as easy as it is to d...

Re: Which albums actually feature Louie's drumming?

According to Louie, the only record he really played drums on was the weed record by the sonic flood guys. Of course he recorded drums, but he did more overdubbing and the songs had samples. The songs were mapped out by the E brothers and John L on drum machines, etc. I spoke to Louie and John L abo...

Re: Remastered albums

The first pressings for Star Song Petra CDs were done in Japan. BTS, BTTS and TMW all exist in Japanese pressings for the US market. The second set of pressings were done in the UK. MPTY, NOTW and BTS were pressed between July 1986 and September 1987 at a UK pressing plant called Disctec. These wer...
