NASHVILLE, TN....6/24/2008....In remembrance of over 25 years since Keith Green’s journey home, Sparrow Records has opened up the vaults and uncovered hundreds of hours of unreleased live concert recordings, festival recordings, television performances, teachings, photos, videos, and even new songs that have never been heard… until now on THE LIVE EXPERIENCE and GREATEST HITS projects, currently in stores.

Along with THE LIVE EXPERIENCE CD is a DVD with over four hours of content, including never before seen live performances from TV appearances, festivals, concerts, and more. In addition, included is a 60 minute documentary “Your Love Broke Through” which tells Keith’s life story from his early days as a child recording star to the spiritual journey that led him to faith in Christ.

The process of gathering such a large bulk of material is quite a story. In storage for 25 years, Melody Green was just waiting for the right time to do something with them, and felt commemorating his life after the 25 year point was important, and so handed the masters over to Sparrow, who then spent 18 months digitizing, cleaning up old reel to reel tapes, video tapes, cassette tapes, etc, and had Green’s concerts, which were all in various sorts of quality, fully restored. THE LIVE EXPERIENCE also features some special packaging with extensive liner notes from John J. Thompson, many new pictures, and fold out design.

The latest GREATEST HITS project features his timeless songs, including "You Put This Love in My Heart"; "Oh Lord, You're Beautiful"; "There Is a Redeemer"; "Your Love Broke Through"; "Asleep in the Light"; "Create in Me a Clean Heart"; "Rushing Wind"; and more. The project also includes the previously unreleased studio track “Your Love Came Over Me” and an unreleased live version of “He’ll Take Care Of The Rest”. See below for the full track listing.

2008 will start a two-year campaign unveiling not only new products of unreleased recordings but also an updated “Legacy Edition” version of the best-selling book “No Compromise,” with six new chapters (November), more previously unreleased recordings of Keith including songs he recorded as he was journeying to his faith in Christ, more previously unreleased recordings (Spring 2009), and ultimately a major motion picture release tentatively scheduled for 2009 telling Keith’s life story. Of late, Keith and Melody Green’s website has also been updated reflecting these new releases and upcoming projects. For more information go to http://www.keithgreen.com/.

Countless lives have been touched by the music of Keith Green and many of the current artists in Christian music today point to Keith as a major influence on their life and ministry. Sparrow is proud to honor his legacy and bring long-time fans what they’ve been wanting for years, and ushering in a new generation to the ministry and music of Keith Green.
