Ish’s Daily Discography. Albums 6 & 7

As I’ve still plenty of time to spare at the mo I thought we could have a bit more fun together.Each day I will post up 2 albums that I’ve recorded (in order) to remind you (and me) of all the tracks on them and also say a few words about each. Just to remind you that all these albums are still available from our website shop either as whole album downloads, whole album hard copy CDs (which I will post to you) or if you prefer you can download any track individually.

1981 was a busy year for me, recording and releasing both these albums in that same year. ‘Land of Hope and Glories’ was a bit like my book ‘Children of the Voice’ it had messages both for adults and for children.

‘Songs for bouncing Glories’ was my first children’s praise album. There were some great songs being written at that time by other writers so I recorded some of these deliberately making them a bit more child friendly. I remember that one writer was not amused that I’d made his song so lively and bouncy.

Recording ‘Amazin’ was great fun as After the Fire joined me and we recorded ‘Live’ in a church hall. This was one of the first recordings where ‘worship’ lyrics to put to rock music and I remember the producer thinking it was blasphemous. Ok the qualities not good but I think the listener can still sense the fun that ‘me and the lads’ had together.

‘Saved & 30’ were both studio albums but I enjoyed recording ‘Saved’ far more than I did ’30’ Rev Counta was far more serious in every way than the crazy Ish Utd.

Ready Salted was recorded in the strangest studio, well large room actually, where the only instruments allowed were Andy and my guitars. We were surrounded by youth from our church youth group who sang along with us. Nearly all tracks were done first take, no overdubs or extra instruments and the recording was completed in just a few hours. Talk about low budget…this album was no budget but with that in mind, it actually came out rather well I think.

The Charge of the Light Brigade was my first solo and definitely my most controversial album. Yep it got banned from all good Christian bookshops.Why? Well humour was only just being allowed in the pulpit, it had yet to enter Christian songs. I thought I would write some ‘tongue in cheek’ songs to get across some serious points, sadly the Christian bookshop owners it seems did not share my sense of humour!
