Little Child

Little Child cover art

In the height of the Jesus People movement, people were finding Christ en masse through coffeehouses and Christian communities up and down the west coast. One such community, the Prince of Peace Coffeehouse, became the most popular place to go in Portland, Oregon. We played there every Saturday night. At that time we were called Chuck, Mary and friends as we just welcomed people to join us in jamming and worship. During this time LITTLE CHILD, our first album was recorded.

Later, because we were considered to be the house band, people began to call us THE PRINCE OF PEACE BAND.

This recording was made in 1975 and was remastered in July of 1997. If you already have this on vinyl or cassette, you will notice a significant improvement in sound quality.
