I bought the Choir's anthology and really liked it. When I read the liner notes, I saw that the lead singer had an association with DA. I also liked Larry Norman and saw Larry was hawking Horrendous Disk on his website. I was curious about DA, so I did a websearch and found this message board. I participated in the message board first, then I started to buy DA albums. I have nowhere near the collection of some of the others on this board, I'm sure, but I find DA's music to be very thought provoking, musically brilliant and generally very enjoyable. I can't say enough about it.

I first found DA about a year and a half ago. At the beginning of 2003, I found a book at Barnes and Noble called The Encyclopedia of Contemporary Christian Music. I bought it and as I read it, the author kept referring to DA, 77s, and the Lost Dogs as if they're the most important Christian rock bands ever, but I had never heard of them. I found this site and ordered their best of cd and also Mr. Beuchner's Dream, and loved both of them. I've been buying DA, SE, 77s, Lost Dogs, and Adam Again stuff almost exclusively ever since. There's still a lot of DA's music that I haven't gotten yet, but I'm still trying. Although, I'd have to say that Adam Again is probably my favorite, and whenever I get Homeboys, I'll have all their music. Smile )

I have to do all my purchasing over the internet, because, unfortunately, none of this is sold in any of the bookstores down here (south Louisiana). In fact, I've yet to find anyone down here who has even heard of DA. I'm trying to get the word out, as I've gotten some of my friends into them; but people are just too legalistic down here when it comes to music. Frown

Welcome to the board, Stel.
It was a long and winding road for me to get to DA, well, not that long I guess. I first heard the choir on a local Christian radio station, Kingston Road was the song, must have been about '86. Then a friend of mine bought The Youth Choir, man I forget the name of the album, not Shades of Grey the next one, oh well. I liked that though it was bleaker than I had ever heard from Christian music before, perhaps more real is better. After that I became a real choir fan and bought a couple of albums. Then I heard Undercover and ojo's solo album and liked that as well. I was blown away by the sound of Undercover's live album fom 1987, keep in mind, all I was used to hearing was MWS et al. Anyway, early 90's I heard that Derri was joining up with some other guys, I'd heard of 77's, actually enjoyed them through a neighbour as well, but I hadn't heard of DA or Adam Again by this time. Anyway, I snapped up Scenic Routes and have been pursuing all things Terry since.

I think the first DA thing I heard was Vox Humana, I co-worker at a camp I was at had borrowed it from his older brother and I loved that, come to think of it I had heard Lets Spin by then too, so I guess that was the first thing I heard from Terry. Shortly after that I found Fearful Symmetry in a box in Florida or three bucks or so and bought that, loved that too, the rest as they say is history.

I turned 6 in 1977.

That was a really cool story, thanks for sharing! Smile

I do wonder, though - do these same people you refer to that are legalistic with music go to Mardi Gras, or is that a totally different area?

I'm just a youngster, only got into DA in the last 2-3 years. It all started with City on a Hil...I heard Derri's voice and was amazed. Picked up GRS from the Dogs because it had Derri's name on the shrink-wrap. Fell in love. Didn't pick up MBD because I was afraid it was country Baby Got Summershine from VOL instead. Heard Ordinary Extraordinary Day on the radio, went back the next week and got MBD. Started picking up everything I can get from Terry, as well as all the other Lost Dogs related artists.

Reading back through the posts in this thread, I see that most folks who have listened to Daniel Amos for a long time went through a period of not keeping up with the guys. I'm not sure why that is. I'm not even sure why it happened to me.

Mine was due to several backslidden years where I thought I was too cool for anything christian. Little did I know that I was just a loser making a mess of my life. When I came back to the Lord, I was happy to see that DA was still recording. I bought SOTH and picked up where I left off. That album has been my favorite ever since.

I was hoping to copy-and-paste one of the dozens of times I've already written the account (the words "Organ Bar" should've turned up SOMETHING more useful Big Grin ), so that's all y'r getting 'cause I'm too jaded to do it all over again. Tongue

CS-
COOL - cuz you keep changing your story anyway.
Which one should we go with?
The "My Mama force fed me this stuff"
or the
" I hated the choir so much- I wanted revenge?"

jk there dude, jk..

I do find it interesting that a number of us (me too) sort of got drawn back in through SOTH.
I actually thought the cover art was great- I thought:

Well - this couldnt be what they mean..what DO they mean?
and it was indeed- what they meant-
Thanks Bud and Irma......
love and stuff

Yeah, I was a dropout Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Honestly...

When Lets Spin came out and I saw who the guys were, I figured DA was dead. I was very upset. I had absolutely no interest at the time in a new Terry band that wasn't DA. I dropped off for 6 years until I saw Bibleland. Then I realized I missed two others (Kalhoun & Motorcycle).

What a stupid thing to do. Since then I've spent a lot of time and money getting every recording that I've missed plus all the CD reissues, occasionally resorting to Ebay.

i didn't know they were still together during most of the 90's... i moved from SoCal to Spokane and when i asked about them in the so-called Christian bookstores here, i just got the deer in the headlights look... Roll Eyes
