    Had an opportunity to see Phil a couple weeks ago at a fundraiser dinner for New Vine Media in Syracuse, NY. Incredible show.

    He played about an hour. Just him and his guitar and equipment. It sounded like a full band.

    Great thread! Every time I hear one of his albums I'm reminded again how much of a master craftsman Phil Keaggy is.

    He still has it. Every once in a while he has a little trouble with his voice, but if he isn't, man he can still sing.

    He definitely is! This thread is going to take awhile but make sure to come back as I am trying to post something daily or every other day at least.

    In 1974, as I mentioned before, Keaggy enjoyed working with others on their albums. Nancy Honeytree was an up and coming Jesus Music musician, and Keaggy helped her with her album called Evergreen. My favorite song from the album is called Lovely Jesus....Keaggy is playing guitar on it and you know it as soon as he starts playing....

    Her voice is quite something. Here's the song and album cover:

    His voice overall was in fine form. "What A Day" sounded just like the LP.

    It is quite amazing how he is able to replicate the sound of a recorded song, with just his guitar and pedals. I don't honestly know that there is anyone like him who does what he does, with even half the skill.

    I have to agree. It was amazing to see him do it live.

    I'm dating myself because this recording is the one that got me listening to Keaggy.

    'Time' is just one of those classic Keaggy tracks. Great choice for a Track 1 Side B.

    Yes, Love Broke Thru would be next in line, having come out in 1976. The song the album was named after was written by Keith Green and Randy Stonehill. From what I understand, Phil asked Keith if he could use the song on his album - and Keith lovingly obliged. Keith Green also recorded the song on his album as well as Stonehill. Some softer songs on this one....still pop songs and definitely more of a rock album than What A Day was...but Time has some pick me up. My favorite song on the album is probably Take Me Closer, which really displayed Phil's guitar work. Keaggy would use Time in many of his concerts, expanding on the sound and having long guitar solos to make the song 8-12 minutes at "times".

    Here's an excellent example of his song Time....probably watched this a hundred times and so thankful it was made available for viewing on youtube. You need to all watch this.
