Horrendous Disc

Horrendous Disc is the title of a 1981 album by the rock band Daniel Amos.

DA had almost completely abandoned their country roots by late 1977 and early 1978, when this album was recorded with legendary rock and roll producer Mike Stone (Journey, Queen, Asia, Kiss, Frank Zappa and others).

The album was dropped by Maranatha! Records[?] after the label decided to quit releasing rock and roll albums and focus on children's releases and gospel music. So the band, now without a record contract, began to shop the project around to various labels like Curb[?]/Warner Brothers. After considering a number of offers, DA settled on Larry Norman's Solid Rock Records[?]. Norman had the album mixed and took photos of the band for the album's cover, but for reasons that remain a mystery, the album was shelved until it's release in April of 1981, weeks before the band's followup on Newpax Records[?], Alarma!, hit record stores.

DA's membership had grown to six members, when this album was recorded. The band included Terry Scott Taylor on guitars, and Lead Vocals, Jerry Chamberlain on guitars, and vocals, Marty Dieckmeyer on bass Guitar, Mark Cook[?] on keyboards and vocals, Ed McTaggart on drums, and Alex MacDougall on Percussion.
