"McDonald & Sherby's"  sole contribution to the canon of 20th century music was Catharsis, an album which originally appeared on the appropriately-named Omniscient label (Omniscient Records 1426S) Some have speculated that given the band's prog/psych leanings, Catharsis was probably recorded in the '70s, although the accepted wisdom is that the album was made at Minneapolis's Sound 80 Studios on 1969. The album consists of six long tracks with a decidedly heavy guitar-based vibe, all well- recorded and delivered with considerable aplomb."


"Latest offering in our series of Christian titles, this time from those noted style gurus, McDonald & Sherby, whose sole contribution to the canon of 20th century music was Catharsis, an album which originally appeared on the appropriately-named Omniscient label (Omniscient Records 1426S) Some have speculated that given the band's prog/psych leanings, Catharsis was probably recorded in the '70s, although the accepted wisdom is that the album was made at Minneapolis's Sound 80 Studios on 1969. 

The album consists of six long tracks with a decidedly heavy guitar-based vibe, all well- recorded and delivered with considerable aplomb. 

A guitar-based progressive album recorded at Sound 80 in Minneapolis. Though undated, the record sounds of a mid-seventies vintage, not dissimilar to fellow Great Lakes prog rockers Kopperfield."

*** I was in this band, and was shocked to find it here! It was indeed recorded at Sound 80 in Minneapolis, but the year is 1974 - not 1969. (In 1969 I was only in the 9th grade, and living in Japan.)

Thanks for clearing up when this album was recorded. I downloaded it the last time you offered it but the file said it was 1969 then. By any chance do you have the name of the person who contacted you and what part of the band did they have? Thanks again.

Thanks again.
I was really hoping for something that could prove the information was true. But I guess this person could have been involved even though there is no Danny S listed. He could have been a roadie or some other less important person for the band. Or maybe even just somebody who imagined they were and made up a story. :) I guess we probably will never know.
