Our collaboration with BlackForrestry continues. Witness – The End Is At Hand: Volume Three. Similar to volumes one and two, this homemade collection rounds up super-obscure, often private press, outsider psychedelic guitar and folk music from the 60s and 70s…all with the underlying theme of the Jesus People Movement.

During the early 1970s the Movement gained a certain amount of notoriety when mass media (Time and Life magazines) featured iconic photographs depicting throngs of hippies getting baptized in the Pacific Ocean + parading through the streets hefting signs that read “Jesus Loves You”. Out of this movement sprang a vibrant music scene, and while there were a number of bands that gained some recognition, many were under-heard, fading into oblivion. Until now. The below mix of Jesus-centric songs ranges in vibe from electric psychedelia to rural pastoral and beyond. And available for the first time in six years, be sure to snag the re-ups of two previous Jesus Movement mixes. Praise.

  6. Killer! Thanks for this! I’ve always been fascinated by this movement. Wild and weird stuff.

    I took a crack at making a compilation like this myself a few years back— http://8tracks.com/j_gamma/the-way

    The Way from J_Gamma on 8tracks Radio.

  7. Great stuff. Just posted an essay on this zone of marvels that ran in the December issue of the Wire on https://techgnosis.com/out-come-the-freaks/

    But the link above to the third volume only takes us to a single track! We need the whole flock!
