This is the first demo by Kevin McCreery I have, and for a 4-track it's quality is amazing. Following this release, he put together a band and they had a small local following for a while.

Back when I was doing the RETZFTS in 1987, I interviewed the band for episode five, and we put together a video for Testify.

Done in the same way as the first, but now increasing in quality with live cymbals added later in the recording process, as the drum machine cymbals (recorded first) would slowly be lost as layers were added. Ed Baird is a guitar playing friend of Kevin's that became one of the members of Under Grace live.

This time around, he got a better sounding drum machine and layered fewer tracks (some of these sound a bit less full stereo) for a really crisp and clear recording. The last three songs are with his old band MACH, which Kevin then rejoined when Under Grace was defunct.
