"He Has Come: Christmas Music from the Jesus Movement" @ bongobells
"The Jesus Movement (late 1960s and early 1970s) was a time
when many bare-footed hippies where coming to Christ.
These young Christians were called "Jesus People"
and they began creating a new form of worship and evangelical music.
Here they sing about Christmas and the Birth of their King."
