The Story of Jesus Retold

HTGCD606The Story of Jesus Retold

Bernard Miles

I was born into a non-conformist family and as a child loved hearing my Grandfather telling me Bible Stories in the language of our native heath – David and Goliath, Noah Cramming the last animals into the all ready full Ark, Jesus walking on the water, the star leading the Wise Men to Bethlehem and Mary and Joseph escaping from Herod’s fury by the long trek into Egypt and so on.
I knew that the stories were mostly about working – class people and their occupations. Adam, a gardener, a group of shepherds minding their sheep, a baby born in a stable amongst farm animals, growing up to become a carpenter and choosing for his followers a group of likely lads, mostly fisherman.
So I set out to retell the story Jesus as I remembered my Grandfather telling it to me in his Hertfordshire speech, the language of his peasant birthplace.
And here it is

This long lost classic rock album has long been sought after by fans of traditional, melodic hard rock for many years.

Featuring the writing and playing talents of Mark and Steve Owers, twins hailing from the south coast of the UK, they brought in vocalist Steve Grimmett to add the finishing touch to this collection of high quality, anthemic music.

Originally released on Music For Nations the album received rave reviews from the rock press of the day and while selling reasonably well in the home market it was a huge success in Japan.

Sadly outside influences had a debilitating effect on the band and the original line up underwent an acrimonious split with the twins and remaining members going their separate ways.

While Mark and Steve currently forge ahead with their new outfit Danze Macabre they are pleased and proud that their electrifying debut release is finally available again.
