With a growing family of three children and the desire to plant a new fellowship in Kansas City, it made sense for Paul to abandon the L.A. scene. Longtime friend, and music partner, Phil Keaggy, and his wife, Bernadette, moved into his house for a season while they searched for a home and answers to her tragic pregnancy issues. Curt Bartlett recruited Jim DeLong and Lee Jones from Seattle, who, along with local woodwindist/keyboardist Dan Murdock, formed the band, “Crossection.”.
Lacking the depth of the previous Hollywood recording sessions, but basking in the warmth of local fellowship sunshine, Phil Keaggy added tasty guitar licks to the developing sounds of Crossection.
Produced by Paul, and engineered by Bobby Cotton at Sound Recorders in KC, but knowing that the recording would be mastered by A&M Records mastering guru, Bernie Grundman, the background vocals were crooned at Paramount Studios in L.A. by Kelly Willard, Michelle Pillar, Bruce Hibbard, Shauna Rogers, Howard and Charity McCrary. Once again, Paul penned another covenant wedding classic. The duet with Kelly Willard on “Here To Stay,” added another composition to his covenant song repertoire.
