The Texas Jerusalem Crossroads
This one could qualify as a Monday Long Song but I'm expecting relatively little traffic today.
This post will take the form of a survey.
Does anyone out there have The Texas Jerusalem Crossroads by Lift to Experience?
If so, have you listened to it and got to the end?
Any idea what the hell is going on?
It appears that this is a concept album about the second coming of Jesus with Texas designated as the Promised Land. Here is a wee bit more background
From 2001 it is the only album by Lift to Experience who were essentially a platform for Josh T Pearson who subsequently released the solo albums Last of the Country Gentlemen and The Straight Hits!
I didn't buy it at the time but being aware of the hype I picked it up second hand a few years later.
It's a right load of old tosh.
I've never managed to listen to it in it's entirety and am somewhat puzzled that it still on the shelves.I'm usually reluctant to jettison anything but in this case I really should get rid.
Anyone willing tp persuade me not to?
