Hello, I composed only 5 of these songs at a later date: #s 7, 9, 10, 11, & 14. The rest (except # 6, originally by J.J. Williams) were composed by various members of our non-denominational Christian farm fellowship based in Wellington, CO during the early '70s, and those were sung during our worship times with guitar accompaniment only. These songs had stuck in my mind and heart for over 30 years, until finally I acquired a small recording mixer in 2004 and was able to add various rhythms and harmonies, and an extra verse or 2. During the 9 months it took me to arrange & record, I would often have to stop to get on my knees in worship and thanksgiving because of the power of God's Word ministering to my soul. I believe you will discover the same. My goal has been to preserve these tunes that have moved and inspired our church to believe God for life transformation. I am also now working on CD # 2 which will feature the remainder of the melodies originally composed from 'down on the farm.'
The back of the CD lists each song, the corresponding Scripture, and the keys and key changes. I also have put together a songbook of all the songs using guitar friendly keys, with many songs having full piano scores, and in the back is a chart for the guitar chords used. You can get this from me for $5 to:
James Tracy 1705 & 1/2 Park Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90026
I also have available a few easy piano scores on the more simple melodies for the beginning piano student. I have been teaching piano, guitar, and bass for the Recreation and Parks Dept. of Los Angeles since 1999.
