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.
