ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the early 70s a spiritual revival swept America called the Jesus Movement. Young hippies were being saved out of the drug culture by the thousands which dramatically changed the structure of church services and Christian music. “Jesus Music,” as it was known, became the precursor of what we now call Contemporary Christian Music. This new music was simple, raw and spoke of the writer’s personal relationship with Jesus and appealed to others to change their life as well. The pioneers of Jesus Music included Larry Norman, Second Chapter of Acts, Love Song and Nancy Honeytree.

Mickey and Becki Moore were professional street singers in New York’s Greenwich Village when they felt called to be a part of this new music ministry (read the longer bio for details). With just a guitar and a testimony they started their own recording company and became very popular artists along the East Coast. After the release of “Love Song For Number Two,” their fourth album, they were catapulted to the top of the national Christian radio charts and thereafter enjoyed a national platform for their ministry. “Love Song For Number Two” quickly rose to the number one position on many Christian radio playlists and ultimately topped off at #2 on the national charts. No independent artist had ever achieved such airplay without the backing of a major label.

Mickey and Becki’s ministry was noted for it’s spontaneous and good natured humor, clever and spiritual songs, creative costumes and stage shows. They were popular artists at all the major Jesus Music Festivals and were doubled billed in concerts with many of the top Christian recording artists of the era. Winkey Pratney called them, “God-called originals” and Cornerstone Magazine said, “Mickey and Becki Moore are a jewel in the Christian musical firmament.”

Mickey and Becki recorded their self titled album, “Mickey and Becki Moore.” on their own Maiden Music label which the Benson Company picked up for distribution. Their sixth album was a children’s musical and stage production titled “Tell Me A Story Before I Go to Bed.”

At the beginning of their music career, Mickey and Becki resolved to protect their marriage from the pressures of being professional musicians. In 1988, after six albums, one stage musical, over 50 published songs, three top-30 radio hits, 15 years of touring north America and thousands of salvation decisions, the Moores pulled back from their full-time touring schedule to devote more time to their family.

Michael, as Mickey is known today, returned to his career as a provider of graphic design services to Christian organizations through Mickey Moore Design Associates. He has won numerous international awards for his print and exhibit work. Becki teaches art and 3D design at The Covenant School where she was instrumental in creating their highly diverse art program.

Mickey and Becki continue to minister in music, today, in their church and, when available, in concert.

Louisa Lament/Spotsy Dell
My wife, Lori Cawthorn, is the niece of Roy Clark of Hee Haw fame. We were recently going through some things of her late grandfather, Hester Clark, and came across the 45 featuring Louisa Lament and Spotsylvania Dell with the record sleeve depicting ya'll on the cover. As Grandpa Clark was into the music of the day (all kinds), he had in his possession hundreds of such recordings, usually the gift of the artist themselves, some with autographs and neat sayings or annedotes. I was just curious if you recall ever meeting either Grandpa Clark or Uncle Roy? Grandpa passed away, oh I guess 8 or 9 years ago. We see Roy a few times every year around the holidays when he and Barbara venture out from Tulsa to visit the family. Roy has also been putting on a benefit concert for the Longwood University's music department around the holidays as well. Been doing that for maybe 10 years now. My wife and I are into the comtemporary Christian music scene, but neither one of us were familiar with your music. After listening to the 45, I wonder why I'd never heard of ya'll? Anyway, thanks to the internet, I was able to do a little research, thus facilitating this inquiry. You and Becki have a blessed day and if you are ever in the King William area (we're actually in a tiny community once known as Beulahville) look us up. Sincerely, Jack Cawthorn
P.S. I actually grew up in Caroline county with Spotsylvania and Louisa being bitter rivals in sports!

Love Song For #2
I was a DJ for Christian radio KSLR in San Antonio, TX in the early eighties when this song came out. I use to play so much the station mgr. gave me a record copy of it and asked me to play it at home. The music is great, the words are in tune and the harmony is heavenly. Carpenters all over again but "reborn". Micky and Becky, you took the words right out of my mouth. God bless you!

Love Song For #2
18 years ago I dedicated this song to my then soon to be husband. It still has the same impact on us as it did back then. The other songs on the album are also excellent. There is something in every one of them that we can benefit from.

Love Song for Number Two
This is an awesome album that I remember from the 80's and didn't even realize it was available in CD format. I would love to know how to order!

Love Your Music!
Your music is incredible, your talent amazing, and your songs are ones that we all can relate to. I have all your CDs and still enjoy them after all these years. I thank God I had the pleasure of meeting the two of you. Would love to see you in a concert again!

Love Song for #2
This was my wedding song in 1982. My husband and I agreed that it rightly fit how we felt about the Lord and the song was perfect. I was told it wasn't a fitting wedding song, but my sister sang it to the sheet music provided at that time and thank you for a wonderful song!

Pat Ciavarella

Fantastic
I can NOT believe I found this album again. I listened to this back in the 80's and have SO missed M&B music. Can't imagine how/why I lost touch with it in the first place but hearing this album again makes me know I won't make that same mistake again. You two are THE BEST!!
