Straight On, by The DeGarmo and Key Band, CD

  • Artist: The DeGarmo and Key Band

SKU: 3977600

DeGarmo and Key were forerunners and early pioneers of Jesus music. Their songs transcended generations and musical boundaries releasing 15 albums over 3 decades. Their first three albums This Time Thru, Straight On, and This Ain't Hollywood have been totally remastered on colored vinyl for the first time ever, along with a remastered CD with an 8-page booklet, lyrics, and photos.

Straight On ranks as #97 for HM's Top 100 Christian Rock Albums of All Time, and is the second studio album from DeGarmo and Key, raising the bar for quality even higher. Eddie and Dana took part in its production, and built a tight knit band that gelled together like a well-oiled machine. From the opening track, Jerich, we hear a classic rock song with impeccable sound quality, with a band at the top of their game. On the catchy Livin' on the Edge of Dyin', Eddie is featured on the lead vocals, taking this song up to #25 on the Christian radio charts. Bad Livin' echoes the progressive rock sound of their debut, while they mix in elements of gospel and soul through tracks like I Never Knew You, and funkiness on their classic rock song, Long Distance Runner. Southern rock flavor is mixed in with Let Me Help You Today. This album helped establish DeGarmo and Key as musicians and songwriters, and is even considered a masterpiece to this day.
