2006, Retroactive Records"The Oregon-based Servant began with a classic rock sound featuring the twin lead vocal of Sandie Brock and Bob Hardy on blues-based songs that sometime recalled Jefferson Airplane. "Shallow Water" is a hard-edged product forged in the same tradition as Barnabas and Resurrection Band, though not as heavy. The song “Jesus Star” allows guitarist Bruce Wright to churn out some admirable guitar riffs and “Fly Away” brings the album to a hand clappin’, foot stompin’ conclusion. Along the way they also offer heavy covers of the Dogwood song “Water Grave” and the Sammy Hagar tune “Rich Man.” (Taken from the Encyclopedia of Christian Music by Mark Alan Powell) Truly pioneers of Christian rock, this award winning debut album by Servant exploded onto the unsuspecting Christian scene in 1979, mocking the staleness and superficiality of Christianity without a social conscience. The debut release for Tunesmith Records out of Canada, "Shallow Water" featured social commentary and progressive music (seared onto red vinyl, no less!) that was a tidal wave for the fledgling Christian music scene.
Known for their theatrics, light shows and smoke bomb performances, many critic considered them too raucous to be authentically Christian. Yet, years and years of touring garnered the band legions of fans, winning them over with rhythmic, passionate rock music that would stir audiences. For the most part, it was like nothing they had ever heard before! In 1982, Servant was so well known they headlined a national tour where the ever popular Petra opened for them! This is a limited edition piece of Christian rock history!"
Out-of-print for over 15 years, digitally remastered for its first ever pressing on CD and with reflections written by founding member Owen Brock, along with a band history, this is a must! Recommended for fans of Rez, Barnabas, Jerusalem and all quality arena rock/AOR.
