Land Of Hope And Glories (1981)

Price incl. VAT, plus delivery

This album was totally radical, the first children's rock concept album that mentioned salvation, baptism, praise, Holy Spirit, healing, opposition, persecution, martyrdom and Heaven. Ishmael created the characters of the Glories and Miseries. The album contains various musical styles, but having just disbanded 'Rev Counta and the Speedoze a year earlier Ishmael shocked some by allowing a little of his punk / new wave influences to be included on this children's album. But it was all done with Ishmael's unique tongue in cheek humour... listen to the track 'Wots the point' and hear a lead guitar break played solely on one note! People loved it. There has never been, and probably never will be anything quite so ground breaking and revolutionary in kid's music and it set a foundation that nearly a quarter of a century later children's ministries and musicians would build upon.
