|Studio album by Petra|
|Producer||Billy Ray Hearn|
Petra is the first studio album by the Christian rock band of the same name. It was released in 1974.
The band's debut is more raw than later Petra albums, lacking the refined production values of future releases. It was recorded on a limited budget of $1,000 during the span of 2 weeks. Nevertheless, this first record displays remarkable guitar technique with many dual guitar solos reminiscent of the Allman Brothers, Wishbone Ash, Thin Lizzy, and other bands from the period who employed harmony leads.
All songs written by Bob Hartman, except where noted.
