Music Day

While poking around the iTunes Store for  eighties Christian music that 1. is actually worth buying, and 2. I don't already have on a cassette or record somewhere; I stumbled across this.
The preview sounded good, so I looked it up on YouTube. And I've developed yet another favourite song.
This is from the band's earlier days, before they seized on the 80's keyboard/synth techno craze. Their sound was much simpler in the seventies and early eighties -- even though they use a pretty decent electric guitar in this song, it sounds almost acoustic to me for some reason. I have no idea why.
Anyway, here you are.

Title: Angel Of Light
Artist: Petra
Album: Never Say Die
Year: 1981
Label: Star Song Records.
iTunes here; YouTube here.
