Mylon LeFevre - Rock & Roll Resurrection (1979)



This album is called "Rock & Roll Resurrection", but it was really Mylon's last Rock & Roll stand. Cause after this album it was Christian music all the way. Which I don't mind, but for me the message gets in the way of appreciating the music. Most times.
But this is Mylon still at his very best. Though this is also very 1979. Which means it's Rock with Disco and Funk laced with Southern edges. The kind of stuff you know I love. Another nice detail is that this album is once again produced by Allen Toussaint, who also produced "Mylon" and "Over The Influence". No complaining on my behalf there either. If you can stomach the late 70's sound of old dinosaurs refusing to die, then this is another cookie jar. Don't hold back y'all...

TRACKS:
Intro - Jesus is a Waymaker
THIS IS A RE-WORK OF THE SONG WAYMAKER FROM THE OVER THE INFLUENCE ALBUM
It's Alright
WRITTEN BY MATTHEW HERRING BUT A GOOD ROCKER SONG
Free Rap & Freedom
ANOTHER GOOD ROCKIN' SONG
Relationships Rap & Child of the Father
MELLOW GOSPEL SONG
Workin' on a Building / Jesus is the Rock
ANOTHER SONG THAT WAS FROM THE OVER THE INFLUENCE ALBUM RE-WORKED
Jesus Loves Me
TRADITIONAL GOSPEL SONG- MELLOW
The Invitation
THE TRADITIONAL ALTAR CALL
Coming Back Again
MELLOW GOSPEL SONG

THIS IS A LIVE ALBUM SO IT HAS LOTS OF ENERGY. AS YOU SEE FROM THE SET LIST WHAT THEY CALL RAP(S) ARE MYLON PREACHING. THEY ARE RATHER INTERESTING TALKS.

THIS IS THE ONLY ALBUM MYLON MADE AFTER HIS RE-CONVERSION, THAT IN MY OPINION, HIGHLIGHTS HIS GREAT VOICE AND HAS SOME GOOD JAMMIN' ON IT. TRACK FIVE IS AN EXTENDED JAM.

ONCE YOU TELL ME HOW TO UPLOAD THIS FOR YOU, YOU CAN DECIDE FOR YOURSELF.

Here is a link to a description of all of Mylon's "Christian" albums.
Kerry Livgren of Kansas
Jimi Jamison of Survivor
Philip Bailey of Earth, Wind and Fire
Rick Cua of the Outlaws
Joe English of Paul McCartney's Wings
Leon Patillo of Santana
and Larry Norman
all show up on one or more of these albums but the albums are really not that good. They are certainly not Southern Rock albums
