Remembering all the British-Israel-Nationalist-arrogant-

Australian rubbish which Scott launched over the years in his

spiritual illness - this is completely contrary to the real

Australian mentality which you can feel there.

If you like to touch it a little bit then put a good headphone

to your ears and listen this joyous powerful large-hearted hymn to the 

Australian dream - covering all nations living there - which I 

found by chance on YOUTUBE:

"The Seekers - I Am Australian"

Best regards.

 Nice of you posting that.

Sadly, I can't watch it. After years of having the Seekers shoved down my throat, it makes me break out in cold sweat to even hear the opening chords of their songs because it brings back so many painful memories I'd rather forget but am unable to. :-(

Do you mean all these "painful memories" you have had inside of CAI? Because Scott has brought the "SEEKERS"-CD" as one of the official "allowed CD's" to CAI? I fully could understand this.

For many years I have rejected to take this CD into my player. Because of all these painful CAI-thoughts coming to my mind again.

Only since one or two years I listen their music again, enjoying their music with the knowledge that they are not a figurehead for CAI.

Yes, Little, spot on. That's exactly the reason I can't listen to that. There's also some other CDs called the 'hymn makers' which were for a while heavily promoted for their wonderful hymns that I've tried a few times to listen to and just simply bear for more than a few chords.

And, yes, you're right. Neither of these groups have any affiliation with the CAI but the pain is associated with the memory that hearing those tunes automatically brings those times back up, just like I'm having wonderful memories of my teenage years brought back up when I sometimes listen to some old 80s song being played at some mall.

But reading your last two lines gives me hope that I'll be getting over it eventually. Thank you.

Fully understand you.

The first "CAI-known" music I heard years ago was as a pastor in Bavaria said by the way that he will give away "some old not anymore needed vinyl records". And he did not knew if he simply would throw them away - or if there is any interested person taking them.  

So I said to take them - no matter what recording they are of. He gave me the box with them and I took it without having a look in it. At home I saw that one of the vinyls was one of YWAM - with the songs of the German "Das Gute Land" vinyl record of "Youth With A Mission" (YWAM).

This time I knew these songs by all the mad quality tape copies which where commonly listened at CAI. I did not knew that these where recorded by YWAM originally. Until then I had the meaning that they where recorded by any old RCI churches.

With some fear I took these vinyl record to my HIFI vinyl player. Fear because of the feelings I wrote in the former posting ...

But I was overwhelmed in hearing this the very first time in "original quality". Wow! This this never could be RCI made. It was YWAM - piracy copied by Scott & Co.!

So this balm for my ears was the first impulse to look after the original sources of all the other pirate copied tapes I listened at CAI time. Most I found as original recordings during the years now. - - - And it was a healing for my soul to re-hear them outside of CAI.

If you like you can write me a private message directly with logging-in here.

I absolutely cannot abide The Seekers or indeed Simon and Garfunkel after hearing them incessantly in CAI. I never liked them when I first heard them, never mind after 1000s of forced listens.

If I start to hear them on the radio, it gets switched off straight away!

Hi Little,

you are kidding me on right? The Australian assembly music tapes were by YWAM?? Are we talking about the same ones = 'officially' called the PRC Tapes? Bajos etc? That would be shocking. I would sure love a reference to the originals if you could be so kind to PM that to me. Much apprechiated.

I was the Chorus Leader Department Super-Intendant (oh yes lol) in CAI and personally taught a slighly different story about all this :/ .

Hi Pilgrim.

Of course I do not mean the PRC tapes. These where by RCI of course.

But this one song for instance I heard most much in CAI Germany from an "official" tape:

Download here: 01-DasGuteLand01.zip

(This one here is taken by the original vinyl record I have.)

During having a journey through THE SEEKERS songs on youtube I stumbled about this interpretation of "Oh Sinner Man" by THE WEAVERS ... :

 "Oh Sinner Man"
