Straight Ahead
Artist: The Daniel Band
Label: Retroactive Records
Length:  12 Tracks/47.55 Minutes
Relive with me my friends the glories of early hard-rocking Christian rock ‘n’ roll. I remember working at WKCC-FM on the campus of Kentucky Christian University (the 10 watt powerhouse…as many watts as you have fingers!) and eagerly grabbing any rocking release that we could squeeze onto the airwaves in between Petra, DeGarmo & Key, and Mylon. The Daniel Band quickly became one of our favorite groups to play and share with the teeming masses. The band's second release Straight Ahead features solid gold classic rock ala’ April Wine, Triumph, REO Speedwagon, and 38 Special (with some slight new wave accents and reggae nuances thrown in for some variety). The Daniel Band’s mission was to present the Gospel in a clear and simple manner, and they did so in fine form on Straight Ahead. The remastering sounds clear and fresh, and also included are two bonus demo bonus tracks. The Daniel Band’s Straight Ahead is yet another winner in the Retroactive Records fine roster of rereleases…highly recommended for fans of the genre.
