Chase the Kangaroo was my first record by The Choir and Wide-eyed wonder was the 2nd.

Circle Slide and Chase the Kangaroo are my two favorites.
Those two and Kissers and Killers make up my top two.


Pleased

I don't have Circle Slide and Kissers and Killers. One day, though....

That's the problem with getting into these guys so late...you're always playing "catch-up"

Better late than never, though!

Yeah, if you don't buy the CDs when they are first issued, it can be pretty rough to buy their stuff! Frown

If only I had some spare change. Frown

I sometimes wonder if I'm descendant of Bob Cratchit....

Oh, well. Maybe next time.

It seems that KIssers and Killers used to go for money than that.

I know, off topic a little, but my first Choir album was Free Flying Soul, which I found (in 2001) in the discount bin at a CBS for $5, I think. I quickly followed that with Flap Your Wings, which I didn't like as much, and (Youth Choir) Voices in Shadows, which I really liked right away, but I like it less as time has passed. Live at Cornerstone 2000 (Plugged) followed not long afterward. I purchased O How The Mighty Have Fallen shortly after it was released, and it stands as my favorite Choir album. I managed to get copies of Chase The Kangaroo and Wide Eyed Wonder within the last year, and I'm still digesting them.


I know I'm joining this thread late, but. . .

Speckled Bird was my first Choir album and both of my 'Choir' concerts came right after its release so Speckled Bird always has a special place for me. I have to agree that "O How the Mighty . . ." is my favorite overall. I kind of scratch my head as to why the potential Grammy nominations on that one didin't go farther. Conerstone 2000 and Circle Slide rank high for me too.

Oh, loved the Bob Cratchet comment. I feel the same way so maybe we're related!

I rode with all of the changes in stride myself, but I gotta admit, when I first put SCENIC ROUTES into my car stereo after hurriedly ripping off the cellophane, my mouth was agape for more than a few spins. In light of DAs country roots, it shouldn't have surprised me so much perhaps. Of course, eventually I loved it.


In the spirit of the thread, for me this would have been 'Green Room Serenade, PT. 1". Thought Scenic Routes was good, thought Little Red Riding Hood was even better, then Green Room threw me for a loop. Too many songs in a hard, modern rock vein (not that I really mind this, but it was really out of place for what the Lost Dogs had started.) Made it sound like leftover song's showed up from Adam Again. Anyway, I skipped the next two albums then I think I might have missed a few really good things because of it. Frown

Mine, too. I love that album. In most cases, the first album you buy of any band is the one that makes the deepest impression. It's a sentimental thing. That's certainly the case with this album, for me.

I had no idea right off that these two people were bogus. I heard later that Terry saw a cover of these two people, and decided to build a fictitious story around them. I heard another story that Tom Howard dropped by during recording and remembered those people from real life.

Very cool.
Cool


Its true. The couple were a travelling gospel singing 'group' that put out at least one album. DA found the album somewhere and borrowed the cover. It just so happens that Tom Howard remembered the couple from when he was a kid, they sang at his church.

No City On A Hill stuff, however. Tongue


NO City on A Hill? Not the first one (which features Gene Eugene) or the Christmas album (which features Terry)? Oh, well. Admittedly, on the whole I prefer the "At the Foot of the Cross" albums and "Noel".

Back to the topic... probably Shotgun Angel was my biggest curve ball. I had discovered TST thru the Swirling Eddies and had back tracked through the Alarma Chronicles albums. In the early '90's when the self-titled amd Shotgun angel were first released on CD, I got SA and ... well... It was a good thing that I had a tolerance for the Eagles.

Later when Scenic Routes hit, I was mildly surprised by the country sound, but SA had provided a knowledge of TST's country background, so it wasn't a total shock.

At the time-
Id say DFFB. I'd started with SA.. when HD Came out I felt like I understood their migration to "British rock" - after having heard Side 2 of SA.
the other chronicles followed form ..the eddies first spin had a lil country twinge and fun stuff.

But when my son brought home DFFB (yes-I stole hs copy Smile )
I really went-wow- no more pretence-no more antics-this is serious stuff.
it took time to grow on me (I was only CCM at the time- there wasnt much in this tone to compare to- at all!)-and it truly is a landmark
but threw me at first.

I came to DA late, despite the fact that I should have started on DA in the 80s. Anyway, The first album I had was Sacred Cows by the Eddies, then I got Gift horse and Green Room Serenade. I had no idea what kind of music I was getting into.

When I bought Mr Buechner's Dream, I had a very hard time with it because, I really liked the country roots and the styles of the Lost Dogs. MBD did not work for me for the longest time. I landed up putting it on a DA MP3 CD with about 10 DA albums- Songs of the Heart, Bibleland, Motorcycle, Vox Humana, Shotgun Angel, etc. While on shuffle, I found I grew to appreciate, then love the songs on MBD as well.

I read lots of the heartache folks had with SOTH but I've always loved it. I guess Terry plays different styles that appeal to a number of different folks and he has certainly found me.

My first DA album was Doppelganger. Darn Floor Big Bite threw me for a loop when it came out. It is still probably my least favorite, which is not the same as saying "I don't like it."
