one of us gave all we had, we believed in what we were doing. Finally, tired
and spent with nothing more to add or fix, it seemed to me its success or failure
was completely out of our hands. We said our goodbyes and thanks to the sound
man, who really had been very patient with us, and walked out into the morning
air. The sun was shining and we talked about breakfast. I believe we felt we
had really done something.
Janet Tiessen, drummer for the New Creation
We are proud to present the first commercial release of Troubled, the sole output from Vancouver, British Columbia's all-but-forgotten Jesus rock trio, the New Creation. Originally pressed in 1970 in the vinyl LP format in a very limited run, this album never quite made it out of its hometown borders. We think this album is an extraordinary example of "outsider" rock and roll and produced this CD so that it can be shared by more than just a few isolated music fans.
The CD was transferred from one of the surviving copies of the original album (master tapes are long gone). It includes 20 page booklet with background notes on the recording, memoirs from band members, rare photos, and several "valentines" [click to read] from adoring modern fansall packaged in a nice, paper cover digi-pack style case.
