I’ve always tried to imagine what heaven will be like. Never thought
I’d be sittin’ up in heaven in an easy chair sippin’ lemonade. But it sure
sounds good to me. The Lemonade Song has to be one of my favorite tunes
in Mitch mcVicker’s self-titled project. This music reveals Mitch’s passionate
desire to honestly open himself in order to convey the immense love of
the Savior. Produced by Rich Mullins and Mark Robertson “This is the long
awaited recording they had just finished the fateful night Rich and Mitch
left for Wichita from Chicago ... but never made it”. The sounds are pure
from the hammered dulcimer on “Freedom” to the washboard and veldhuis can
on “The Lemonade Song”. The song, “Hope”, reminds us that there is hope
for our day to day existence and that we have not been left alone. Of course,
it was not just the message of “Hope” that caught my attention; there are
some killer keyboard and electric guitar parts in that song also. Mitch
wrote all songs except two that were co-written with Rich, “Gospel Rain”
and “New Mexico”. A very worthwhile recording to add to your CD collection.
Not the collection in the basement, the one you listen to frequently.
