Robert Rigby - Rock Star (1979)

Good British rock musical based on the story of Christ's birth, written by Robert Rigby and Stan Hewitt. Rigby is one of seven vocalists here while several musicians provide guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, vibes, mandolin and synthesizer (I recognize Mo Witham from Achor and Wine Of Lebanon). A diverse set encompassing hard rock (‘Taxes’ and ‘Herod Has Spoken’), dreamy minor-key ballads (‘Give Us Shelter’, ‘When He Bleeds’ and ‘Hide From The Light’), funky Southern rock (‘Under The Star’), folk/praise (‘Nativity Song’) country pop (‘To Love The Lord’), even a catchy disco number (‘For You’). ‘King Of Kings’ with its Scots-Irish melody sounds like a dead ringer for Reynard. Nice wah-wah guitar on a few tracks. Closes with a bit of upbeat slide guitar boogie on ‘Rock With Jesus’. Comes in a handsome tri-fold cover. Spine lists the label as Rediffusion. (Ken Scott – Archivist)

  1. I am surprised that, wherever I search for information, the school class that assisted on the songs on the Rock Star album are never mentioned. The class was from Breckland Middle School in the tiny town of Brandon, Suffolk, England. The class happened to be the class I attended at this school, in 1979. I am actually the 9 year old girl who sang the solo verse on the song, Sleep in Peace. My copy of the album was lost many years ago. I would love to get it again, was it ever re released on DVD?
