Originally released 1979, Hold On Tight shows Sweet Comfort Band beginning to move away from the jazz-fusion stylings they had become known for and easing toward the more mainstream rock sound that would become evident on their later releases. The album was produced by Jesus Music veteran, Tom Stipe (Country Faith, Richie Furay Band). The title track scores an early high point lyrically with an inspirational call for struggling believers to hold fast to the truth of Christ, which alone can sustain them. "Carry Me" is an interesting track musically with progressive, moody stylings. "Undecided" is some major ear-candy that exemplifies the sort of melodic pop that gives Top 40 radio something with hooks and a stunning melody! Duncan's voice soars and floats over countless magical, memorable moments by the album's end. This 30th Anniversary Edition comes packaged in a full color digipak with enhanced original artwork and is properly remastered for a high quality audio experience! 11 tracks in a quality 4 panel digipak - including the hits Angel, Undecided, and Carry Me! Features CCM giants, Bryan Duncan (solo) and Randy Thomas (Allies)! Features guest appearances by Richie Furay, Tom Stipe, Alex MacDougall (Phil Keaggy Band), Bob Wilson (Seawind) and the Seawind Horns!

Maybe it's because it was the soundtrack for my beginning as a believer back in August 1976.      The Jesus music of the late seventies was part of a move of God among the counter-culture. Chuck Smith and Calvary Chapel were part of it. Sweet Comfort Band (SCB) was featured on some of the early Maranatha Music (Calvary's label) collections.      Unlike many of their contemporaries who developed …
