DeGarmo and Key were forerunners and pioneers of early Jesus Music.  Their music transcended generations and musical boundaries.  They released 15 albums spanning 3 decades.   Their first three albums This Time Thru (1978) Straight On (1979) and This Ain't Hollywood (1980) have been completely remastered on colored vinyl for the first time ever along with remastered CDs with 8 page booklets, lyrics and photos with LTD Trading Card.  

This Time Thru

DeGarmo and Key’s debut album This Time Thru set a new standard for high quality songwriting, musicianship, and production raising the bar for all the future albums to come. From the opening acoustic guitar intro to “Emmanuel,” which soon explodes into a classic rock song filled with keyboards, guitar solos, passionate singing, and Biblically based lyrics, one is ushered into a sound that was every bit as high quality as anything being released in the mainstream market. Elements of progressive rock appear in songs such as “Too Far, Too Long,” which features a keyboard intro that echoes the work of Keith Emerson from Emerson, Lake, and Palmer, and “Chase the Wind,” which features elements that would be at home in a Kansas song. Then there’s the country/rock flow of “Sleeper,” the grooving R&B shuffle of their cover of the traditional “Wayfaring Stranger,” and the title track, which closes the album and features a keyboard solo in the vein of Styx. All in all, This Time Thru, released in 1978, has stood the test of time and remains one of the finest debut albums in Christian rock history.

        Simply Speachless.

        The care that goes into each re-release of these albums is remarkable. I cannot express how appreciative I am of the quality of each and every release they put out including this one.

        DeGarmo & Key Classic Debut

        Before all the CCM Clichés DeGarmo & Key were a True Classic Rock band singing about Jesus. A combination of Prog, Blues and Country rock combine to make a terrific debut. Girder brought this back to life! The vinyl is stunning and DeGarmo & Key never sounded so good! If your use to the D&K of the mid 80s this is a different animal and may surpeise you. You need this!
