  1. i couldn’t actually post a message on the DTL facebook wall… i could only comment on your post…

    here is what i wrote:
    Hey all! i am the person that should be winning this amazing CHOIR package and here’s why: i’m an Aussie bloke living down here in Australia. way back in 1990 i had finished high school… while thumbing through all the dross in my local christian bookstore i stumbled onto this beautiful looking album called “circle slide” by some band called “the choir” – i remember thinking: “great photograph, pity about the band name”… i slipped the CD into the listening post, popped on the headphones and skipped through the tracks, interesting, interesting… and then i got to “restore my soul” – i bought the album for the opening drums ALONE!
    and that began my love affair with THE CHOIR.
    i actually got to see the band and had them to sign an album at cornerstone festival in 1994, i was too star struck to string two words together…
    when i got back to australia after my little trip i landed a volunteer gig on a community radio station where i would slip in The Choir, Adam Again, Daniel Amos, 77s, Lost Dogs etc every chance i got. i feel i owe Derri & Steve so much because they were my portal into a new world of musical possibilities…
    Anyway, being down here in Australia, the opportunities to see the band live are non existent, to find their music in a store is impossible and to talk to another fan in person is chances: slim to none.
    So a package from one of the greatest bands in the world, from my favourite “zine” in the world would be beyond “sweet”, it would be awesome…
    and i still get shivers with those drums on Restore My Soul…
    i’m playing it now.

  2. I would love to win this package. I have loved the music The Choir puts out for many many years! My first intro to the Choir was during their Wide Eyed Wonder years. Of course now i have all their music!
