Totally takes me back to the 80's when I bought all of the Petra albums on tape cassette. Live reliving my childhood. I love the original recordings. I bought another Petra album not too long ago that I thought was original recordings and it ended up being a new recording by Petra sometime in 2000s. Something about hearing the song EXACTLY the way you remember it that is so cool.
The LP and cassette versions were far superior to the CD

"What a travesty such a great, great album of live material suffered such a brutal hatchet job when it was transfered to compact disc. "Captured In Time and Space" was a monumental release for Petra in that not only was it the last to feature the vocally acrobatic Greg X. Volz in the lead singer slot, it unleashed John Lawry's shamefully fun "Jesus Loves You" keyboard solo. When I bought the CD, I was amazed that all the songs and spoken portions were able to fit on a single disc; so I assumed. What I wasn't prepared for was a good chunk of music and dialog were edited out (and very poorly edited too I might add) for what I can only assume was for time constraints.
This live performance deserved so much better. I recommend any true fan of Petra to pick up the LP or cassette version (and I strongly recommend the cassette over the LP). You'll find the performances in their entirety as they should've been on the CD, but aren't. It's bad enough that Star Song, Petra's label at the time, found it necessary to cannibalize Petra's catalog with multiple "best of" compilations containing many of the same songs. It's even worse that they would allow this fine work to be butchered onto the CD version. Shame! Shame! Shame! This should've been released as a double CD with the full performance intact."
Amazing Music with a Great Message

"The LIVE Petra album "Captured in Space and Time" is a compilation of some of their best live concerts from 1989. The music is amazingly energetic, uplifting and entertaining. They also share a message of hope and encouragement that was very helpful to me at a tremendously difficult time in my life. I was going through a very rough time, and I would listen to this album and it would lift my spirit and renew my hope. Thank you Petra, for sharing your music and message of faith with us!"
