Gary S. Paxton's second FORTRESS recording reveals more - adding to the foundation of the first project - of the spiritual journey of this eccentric, looking-in-through-another-window, super-talented musical genius. Memorable, challenging songs...great performances and colorful, dynamic production makes Gary S. Paxton /More a most unique and important body of songs. Observations of a friend, Film/TV Actor and Radio Personality, Larry Black:
Astonishing, Outrageous, Incredible, Unbelievable. With these words, the first Gary S. Paxton album exploded on my turntable. In an age of sameness, here was a man bent on uniqueness...no two cuts were the same. I had to meet him. I went to Nashville to interview a wild man in a red jumpsuit, funny hat, tennis shoes and a wierd beard. I met a man of God. God likened his church to a body with each memberhis or her function. God likes to say that hes an armpit in the body of Christ. I believe that, in truth, hes a strong right arm of the Gospel. No one can listen to a Gary S. Paxton song and not be struck with truth.The point may be made with ridiculous laughter or painful tears, but the point sticks. There's a whole lot of God on Garys second project. He could have said , Im overcome with the marvelous life Gods given me. Instead, to a disco beat, he wrote in language everyone could understand, Im Hooked On A Good Thing. He could have said how important it is that you be ready to meet your Maker. Instead, he wrote whatcha gonna do when the meat wagon comes for you? I believe that God has given Gary S. Paxton a special place in His body. I love the man and I love the music that Gods given us through him. Enjoy it..he wrote it for you.
