First review of Echo CD

No Comments

Our good friend at CrossRhythms have published the first review (that we know of or have seen) of the new ECHO CD “Bought Not Sold”

A great review on the whole. Only problem is they changed (basist & band leader) Greg’s surname from Nash to Nelson!?! I’m sure he can live with that.
