Preacher John Reconstructed 25 Years Later

You may recall a few posts back that I was telling you all about the story of Preacher John. Well here is the reconstructed version of the song 25 years later. This is the song I wrote for John Stuart's Induction yes 25 years ago. I grateful to my songwriting partner Iain Jamieson for putting down the soundtrack and for the creative input of Campbell Dye a past member of the Bogle Band and who worked on the keys and fills. Let hear what you think of this version. Personally I think I might sing the lyric a wee bit to aggressively, but I think when we come to the end of the song we engage with a really interesting vibe. Anyway its not meant to be a perfect work of art just a tribute to a good friend. However Iain and myself are determined to get another album out before the end of the year.

This song was written for another, and I hope he does not mind sharing it. Some 20 years ago,God used it to speak to me as part of my hearing of his call into full-time ministry. Hearing it again this week, it came with affirmation and encouragement. God’s grace knows no bounds.

Yes, why not! I would not know how to go about it, though. But everybody listening to St Andrew’s cds and the Bogle Band cds seems to really enjoy them.

Thanks Helmut for your encouragement. Last night my son and I took part in a fund raiser for the new work that Vine Trust are starting to support in Tanzania. It ended up a great night and quite a bit of cash was raised. Who knows we might still get the Bogle band out on the road again.How about a gig in Germany?
