Heavily influenced by The Band, Steely Dan and The Byrds' Sweetheart of the Rodeo, D.A.'s debut full length album temporarily leaves behind the rock and roll roots of the band members earlier bands although many of the songs came from those days. Baxter's "The Bible" and "Love In A Yielded Heart" (then known as "Freedom") were both performed in the early days of Jubal's Last Band, the band that was formed in late 1972 and eventually evolved into Daniel Amos. Taylor's "William," "Dusty Road," and "'Aint Gonna Fight It" date back to 1971 and his early band Good Shephard, and "Skeptic's Song" (then known as "Resurrection") dates back at least to 1972 and his band, Judge Rainbow and the Prophetic Trumpets.
The band's recording contract with Maranatha! resulted from Jubal's Last Band's audition for the label sometime in mid 1975. Another band at the meeting, led by Darrell Mansfield, had a similar name - Jubal. The two bands decided to change their names to avoid confusion. Mansfield renamed his band Gentle Faith, and Jubal's Last Band became Daniel Amos. Not long after, D.A. recorded its first song for Maranatha!, Taylor's "'Aint Gonna Fight It." That track was released on the Various Artists album, Maranatha! 5 towards the end of that same year. That December, D.A. entered Mama Jo's Studio and began work on their first album. The album was released in early 1976.~ Wikipedia

Shotgun Angel is the title of a 1977 album released by Daniel Amos. The album is named after the song of the same name, which is also found on the album. The song was written years earlier by Bill Sprouse Jr. for his band The Road Home. After Sprouse's untimely death at age 26, Mike Shoup dug up an old 4 track tape and asked Dom Franco of the Maranatha! group Bethlehem to add pedal steel guitar to the song. The rest is history, for when the guys from Daniel Amos heard it they enlisted Franco to play the pedal steel and Mike and Ed to add the CB radio voices on the recording. Not only did it become a popular song at the time for D.A., it would also become the title of their second album.
Although DA's previous release was largely country, this album marked the start of a return to the band's pre-label roots, rock and roll, which took some of their country fans by surprise. Shotgun Angel was half country and half rock-opera. The 'Side 2' of the LP featured lush orchestrations and a string of rock songs linked together in a way that was reminiscent of The Beatles Sgt. Peppers album. The band even made a number of concert performances at this time with a full orchestra backing them.~ Wikipedia

3. "Near Sighted Girl(With Approaching Tidal Wave)"
4. "Out Across The Sky(Sky King)"

9. "Horrendous Disc"
10. "Hound Of Heaven(Performed by Larry Norman)"
11. "Hound Of Heaven(Another Version Performed by Larry Norman)"
Horrendous Disc is the title of an album by the rock band Daniel Amos, that was recorded in 1978 and released in 1981.DA had almost completely abandoned the country sound of their first record by late 1977 and early 1978, when this album was recorded with legendary rock and roll producer Mike Stone (Journey, Queen, Asia, Kiss, Frank Zappa and others).
The album was dropped by Maranatha! Music after the label decided to quit releasing rock and roll albums and focus on children's releases and the new praise style of gospel music. So the band, now without a record contract, began to shop the project around to various labels like Curb/Warner Brothers. Word bought the tapes from Maranatha! and Larry Norman's Solid Rock Records, home to such artists as Randy Stonehill, Tom Howard, Mark Heard, and others, leased the recordings from Word. Norman had the album mixed and took photos of the band for the album's cover. In July 1979, Norman released a test pressing with a different track listing and slightly different mix. This pressing was distributed to reviewers and extra copies were taken on tour.
Aside from live performances, music from the album, the test pressing, was first heard by the public on the Rock & Religion Radio Show on January 20, 1980. Several tracks were played and the band was interviewed about what they had hoped would be their soon-to-be-released album. For reasons that remain a mystery, the album was shelved by Solid Rock until its long overdue release in April 1981, nearly three years after it had been recorded and just weeks before the band's follow up on Newpax Records, ¡Alarma!, hit record stores. Upon its release, CCM found it's sound to be "bizzare, multifacited" compared to the group's other releases.
This album frequently appeared at the top of Christian Music magazine readers polls of the "album that people most wanted to see released on CD," until its eventual reissue on CD in 2000. It was listed at #63 in the book CCM Presents: The 100 Greatest Albums in Christian Music (Harvest House Publishers, 2001).
The CD re-release stirred controversy among Daniel Amos fans by the inclusion of two bonus tracks: Tribute recordings that Larry recorded for the When Worlds Collide: A Tribute to Daniel Amos CD that he decided to include at the end of the Horrendous Disc CD. The covers sung by Norman were of his favorite Daniel Amos song – "Hound of Heaven." One recording was a straight-ahead tribute version of the song and the second tribute recording was a version using a very laid–back jazz band. The decision to include these cover tracks on the CD, along with some long, wandering liner notes, bewildered DA fans.~ Wikipedia

¡Alarma! is a 1981 album by rock band Daniel Amos, released on Newpax Records.¡Alarma!, released weeks after the band's Beatles/Beach Boys influenced Horrendous Disc, took a decidedly New Wave direction along the lines of Elvis Costello or Talking Heads.
Lyrically, the album contains social commentary so harsh that CCM described it as "perhaps the most scathing ever put out by a Christian label."
¡Alarma! was the first of a four part series of albums by DA entitled The ¡Alarma! Chronicles, which also included the albums Doppelgänger, Vox Humana, and Fearful Symmetry. On the tours that followed each release, the band presented a full multimedia event complete with video screens synchronized to the music -- something that was unusual in the early 1980s for any band. This album, along with the other three albums from the Alarma! Chronicles, was rereleased as part of the Alarma! Chronicles Book set in 2000. The Book Set included 3 CDs, over 200 pages of lyrics, photos, liner notes, essays, interviews and other information in a hardcover book.
Dieckmeyer left the band before the ¡Alarma! Tour, and was replaced with bassist, Tim Chandler.
This album was listed at #62 in the book CCM Presents: The 100 Greatest Albums in Christian Music (Harvest House Publishers, 2001).~ Wikipedia
Doppelgänger, 1983 album 320cbr
1. "Hollow Man" (Taylor)
2. "Mall (All Over The World)" (Taylor)
3. "Real Girls" (Taylor/Chamberlain)
4. "New Car!" (Taylor)
5. "Do Big Boys Cry" (Taylor)
6. "Youth With A Machine" (Taylor)
7. "The Double" (Taylor)
8. "Distance and Direction" (Taylor)
1. "Memory Lane" (Taylor)
2. "Angels Tuck You In" (Taylor)
3. "Little Crosses" (Chamberlain)
4. "Autographs for the Sick" (Words by Taylor, Music by Taylor/Chamberlain/Chandler)
5. "I Didn't Build It For Me" (Words by Taylor, Music by Taylor/Chamberlain)
6. "Here I Am" (Taylor)
7. "Hollow Man (Reprise)" (Taylor)
Doppelganger was a much darker, more haunting album than the album that preceded it, ¡Alarma!. The album starts with the eerie backward sounds of "Hollow Man" (inspired by T. S. Eliot's poem, The Hollow Men). Taylor's lyrics to "I Didn't Build it For Me" and "New Car" were sharp attacks on televangelists, that actually predate the Jimmy Swaggart/Jim Bakker/Robert Tilton scandals by nearly a decade.
Doppelganger was the second of a four part series of albums by DA entitled The ¡Alarma! Chronicles, which also included the albums ¡Alarma!, Vox Humana, and Fearful Symmetry.~ Wikipedia
Vox Humana, 1984 album 320cbr
1. "Travelog" (Taylor)
2. "(It's The Eighties, So Where's Our) Rocket Packs" (Taylor)
3. "Home Permanent" (Taylor)
4. "It's Sick" (Taylor)
5. "William Blake" (Words and Music by Taylor, Arrangement by Taylor/Chandler)
6. "Dance Stop" (Words and Music by Taylor, Arrangement by Taylor/Chandler)
1. "Live And Let Live" (Taylor)
2. "When Worlds Collide" (Taylor)
3. "As The World Turns" (Taylor)
4. "She's All Heart" (Taylor)
5. "The Incredible Shrinking Man" (Taylor)
6. "Sanctuary" (Taylor)
Vox Humana was a much brighter album than its predecessor, Doppelgänger, and included catchy, synthesizer-driven pop songs with lyrics about technology's role in American culture. "Travelog" was a song about a television-obsessed man "basking in the blue light".
Danish author Søren Kierkegaard, Polish poet Czeslaw Milosz, and Britons Malcolm Muggeridge and William Blake are all quoted in the liner notes of the album. DA also included a beautiful tribute to Blake with the ballad, "William Blake."
"Dance Stop", a song condemning nuclear arms escalation, asked listeners to dance to the song and stop suddenly when the word "stop" is sung. Due to the fast, upbeat punk rock style of the song, it is nearly impossible to follow the song's musical directions. The song went on to become a popular concert favorite for DA fans in later years, with audience members doing their best to follow the rules.
Vox Humana was the third of a four part series of albums by DA entitled The ¡Alarma! Chronicles, which also included the albums ¡Alarma!, Doppelgänger, and Fearful Symmetry.~ Wikipedia
Fearful Symmetry, 1986 album 320cbr
Fearful Symmetry is a lush, synthesizer driven pop album, lyrically wrapped in puzzles that the listener has to decipher. Nearly every song on Fearful Symmetry in some way deals with pain or darkness - from the William Blake-inspired "Sleep Silent Child", a song about death, to "Strong Points, Weak Points", a song about doubt. The album title comes from a line in The Tyger by Wm. Blake. The album ends on an upbeat note however, with the touching ballad, "Beautiful One".
Fearful Symmetry was the final chapter of a four part series of albums by DA entitled The ¡Alarma! Chronicles, which also included the albums ¡Alarma!, Doppelgänger, and Vox Humana.~ Wikipedia
The Revelation, 1986 320cbr
1. "Finale: Bereshith Overture"
2. "Lady Goodbye"
3. "The Whistler"
4. "He's Gonna Do A Number On You"
6. "Sail Me Away"
7. "Posse In The Sky"
The Revelation is a reworking of the popular "side 2" of the band's 1977 album, Shotgun Angel. All of the tracks were remixed, and one bonus track was recorded, the Phil Spector inspired Soon. Also, added for this new collection were narrations between songs by Calvary Chapel Pastor Chuck Smith, reading from the Book of Revelation.
Darn Floor - Big Bite, 1987 album 320cbr
1. "Return of the Beat Menace" (Words by Taylor, Music by Taylor/Flesch/Chandler)
2. "Strange Animals" (Words by Taylor, Music by Taylor/Flesch/Chandler)
3. "Darn Floor - Big Bite" (Words by Taylor, Music by Taylor/Flesch/Chandler)
4. "Earth Household" (Words by Taylor, Music by Taylor/Flesch/Chandler)
5. "Safety Net" (Words by Taylor, Music by Taylor/Flesch/Chandler)
1. "Pictures of the Gone World" (Words by Taylor, Music by Taylor/Flesch/Chandler)
2. "Divine Instant" (Words by Taylor, Music by Taylor/Flesch/Chandler)
3. "Half Light, Epoch and Phase" (Words by Taylor, Music by Taylor/Flesch/Chandler)
4. "The Unattainable Earth" (Words by Taylor, Music by Taylor/Flesch/Chandler)
5. "The Shape of Air" (Taylor)
DA followed the critically acclaimed ¡Alarma! Chronicles four part album series with this album which left many scratching their heads. Although it was praised by many fans and critics, it became one of DA's worst selling albums, rejected by an industry which, ironically, didn't understand what it meant.
The title of the album came from an incident involving Koko the gorilla, who had been trained to understand limited amounts of American Sign Language. Koko reacted to an earthquake with the words "Darn darn floor bad bite. Trouble trouble." The general lyrical theme of the album is comparing Koko's limited and inadequate understanding of the earthquake, to man's limited and inadequate understanding of the nature of God.
The album is also heavily inspired by the works of Czeslaw Milosz, especially in songs like "The Unattainable Earth" (which was named after one of Milosz' books), "Safety Net", "Pictures of the Gone World", "Divine Instant", and "Half Light, Epoch, and Phase". Taylor also incorporated several lines from the book Little, Big by John Crowley into his lyrics, including the line "I drink you endlessly toward my hollow heart" in the song "Earth Household." Taylor's love for Annie Dillard comes through strongly with the final song, "The Shape Of Air", which features an all star choir. ~ Wikipedia

Preachers from Outer Space! is the title of a 1994 live album by rock band Daniel Amos, released on Stunt Records.
Preachers chronicles a bit of what the band was doing in those "missing years" of 1978-1981; after much of the Horrendous Disc album had been finished, and about four years before it would finally be released by its label. The show starts with a few of the band's earlier country/rock songs like "Shotgun Angel," and "Happily Married Man," and then introduces the audience to many songs from the still unreleased album. Also included on this collection are the rare concert favorites, "Mary Baker Eddy" and "Secret Scripts & 3D Glasses" - neither of which has ever been recorded by the band for an album or released officially on any other project.~ Wikipedia

It is entirely impossible to summarize nearly twenty-five years of Daniel Amos's music with only eighteen songs, and most fans will be frustrated that their own personal favorite world famous hits are not among the mix. I can personally think of two albums worth of their material that I'd rather see collected on one disc. In some cases the songs selected here would have been my second, third...or even fourth choice from each album. On the flip side, they didn't include any embarrassing stinkers either. This confounding situation of not knowing which tracks to include to please the most people with one fell swoop may also account for what appears to be the album's intentionally tighter focus. Most of Daniel Amos's boldest, oddest adventures are avoided in favor of songs that are either just more straight-forward or among the beautiful, thoughtful, or sentimental variety. This would have worked well had KMG also released a companion disc of Daniel Amos's most upbeat anthems, outlandish experiments, and outright party hits, which are surprisingly and disappointingly missing here for the most part. (The deviously clever "Mall All Over the World" being the most notable exception.)
Regardless, the fact remains that this collection contains such strength of material that Taylor's songwriting genius--not to mention his cohorts impressive musical talents--are all granted some measure of appropriate homage. Most of the fun that could have injected this collection with gleeful rollicking abandon is undermined. But what remains is still a solid, considerable testimony, especially to the Author of Faith who sustained the band through all these years. At best, very nearly the best of Daniel Amos! At worst, some great songs to introduce a friend to the band. And we can all still hope "the band that won't go away" just plain won't.

Mr Buechner's Dream is the title of a 2001 double album by the rock band Daniel Amos.
Although the album includes over 30 songs, the band did not set out to record a double album. "I think Chris Colbert (the band's engineer) thought we were a little crazy. It’s my sense that the sheer joy of being together again in a creative setting after a seven years absence opened the floodgates of the creativity I believe is unique to Daniel Amos", explains Taylor, the band's lyricist.
Lyrically the album reflected the tumultuous events experienced by members of the band in recent years: the passing of two young and very dear friends, including producer and studio owner Gene Eugene, cancer in Taylor's family, and in the families of other close friends.
Musically, it was like kids in candy store. DA had never been more experimental or creative in the studio.
The "Mr Buechner" referred to in the title is in fact Pulitzer Prize nominated author Frederick Buechner, who has been a major inspiration on the band's lyrics for years. The album also pays tribute to authors Walker Percy, T. S. Eliot, G. K. Chesterton, Flannery O'Connor, Lewis Carroll, and Dorothy L. Sayers.~ Wikipedia

With the relative success of the bookset (remind me to roll my eyes when a mere 2,000 copies is considered a success - what a sad state of affairs), the band decided to revisit Songs of the Heart. Which to me was an odd choice for a reissue, considering how readily avaible the album is if you know where to look. But it was the will of the band. The resulting three disc set was issued in a softbook, with an accompanying story, detailed liner notes and lyrics. The packaging was really well done. The CD sleeves were ackward, but I store the CDs in their own cases so it's not a big deal.
Songs of the Heart was originally released in '95, and is as misunderstood an album as the boys ever released. The band seemed to delight in throwing out artistic curve balls. A delight to those few who "got" the band, and a marketers nightmare if you're trying to move product.
The reworked songs are quite a treat, and to be honest a bit of a surprise. The smokey atmosphere and sparse arrangements give them a subtle twist. One can almost imagine the guys performing in an old roadhouse behind the chicken wire. A few years ago an album like this would have been blown off as one of those ubiquitious MTV Unplugged albums. ~ banophernalia.com

This performance at Cornerstone 2000 was so awesome that Millenium 8 Records released it in 2001 as a 2 CD Set rather than editing it down to a single disc. Its a one-time Limited Edition pressing of just 1500 copies. The sonic quality of this show was rated 8.5 out of 10. Disc 1 is TT: 65:15 Disc 2 is TT: 62:45 ~ Amazon.com
