In the '60s and '70s, a lot of hippies got into Jesus, and were dubbed The Jesus Movement or, more unkindly, Jesus Freaks. Either way, out of these people came some great records.
Private pressings and gems hidden away from the mainstream contained some cool psychedelic rock and folk rock, all about God, Jesus, the Devil and of course, the sinners. This is by no means a complete representation of the music from America and Europe, but the tunes are ace, whether you Believe in Him or not.
Gospel music is rather well documented, but the Christian hippies have been slept on, so get stuck in and see why they thought: "Jesus is just alright with me".
