Item Description...
Overview
The late 60's and early '70's were a time of tremendous upheaval in American culture as the hippie generation abandoned the values of their parents, turned to drugs and away from materialism, and went on a search for love and peace. For these young people, "the establishment" which included the church, seemed irrelevant. At times it felt like the very fabric of our nation might tear apart.

It was out of this tumultuous era that young, musical voices began to surface. These newly converted musicians began singing about the new hope they had found through Jesus Christ.

First Love examines the life and music of the people who birthed the sounds of a revolution that swept American culture. It became know as the Jesus Movement. For three historic days, these artists gathered for the first time in a mountain retreat in Southern California and First Love Volumes I & II captures almost 4 hours of each of their incredible live performances and reveals a rare look a the heart and motives of each artist as they describe in intimate detail the drama of their personal transformation.

With performances by:
? Randy Matthews
? Barry McGuire
? Annie Herring
? Chuck Girard
? Matthew Ward
? John Fischer
? Andrae Crouch
? Jamie Owens Collins
? 2nd Chapter of Acts
? Terry Clark
? Keith Green tribute with Melody Green

First Love: A HIstoric Gathering of Jesus Music Pioneers A Great gathering of Christian singers  Jan 10, 2007
I thought this was a great documentary. The pioneers of Christian music had some great testimonies along with their great music. I would recomend this to all Christians and those who are looking for answers about Jesus.
 
What an eye-opening experience  Jan 3, 2007
I wasn't raised on "Christian" music, and before watching First Love I had no knowledge of how the movement got started. My only exposure to Christian music has occurred in the last seven years. Frankly, it's been a disappointing experience. This whole "CCM" Hollywood mentality reaches deep into Christian music. And I wondered why I found it all so distasteful--until I watched First Love.

Wow.

I wasn't there when these pioneers hit the road in their beat up buses, just to play a few songs on their old guitars to crowds of starving, young Jesus freaks. But something in my heart tells me I must have been there in spirit, because I felt completely overwhelmed watching this video. I was so excited to see the old video footage and images. It was like going home. I was moved to tears when Honeytree sang "Pioneer" - as was everyone else in the room with her. "Pioneer" is the essence of everything they lived and breathed in those days.

These artists were truly pioneers. I see that this is what Christian music should be like today. And I'm going to stop feeling bad about disliking today's "CCM" mentality, because it really is utter degradation of what used to be the REAL reason why people sang their hearts out for Jesus.
 
Return to Bethel  Oct 6, 2006
First Love is an anthology of the early Jesus People movement of the 70s. Several of the pioneers relax and sing their songs together in the comfort of the Forest Falls retreat in the San Bernardino mountains. Their testimonies will move you to tears just as it did them so many decades later. Especially moving are those of Terry Clark, Annie Herring, Matthew Ward, Andráe Crouch and Darrell Mansfield. Testimonies that include severe psychosis, drugs, cancer, suicide, despondency, and hopelessness. All these are healed in an instant with the single bowing of the knees and surrender of the heart. There is a time in all of our lives when we need to "return to Bethel" just to remember where we came from in these 30-40 years. I refuse to "look back", but rather keep my eyes on the prize before me. But while I run the race, it's great to recall the journey and thank the Lord for all He has done these many decades. "First Love" is a great title. It not only helps us remember why we come to faith in the first place, and may also be an encouragement for recommitment for those who have left and wish to return. To this we would sing Love Song's first tune on the DVD--"Welcome Back".
 
First Love: A great video!  Jul 11, 2006
I bought this as a gift for my dad. Our family watched it together--it was really good! It takes a lot of Christian artists and they talk about how they came to find God and what life was like when they first started this music, within a context of the 60's counter-culture.
 
Enthusiastically recommended viewing and listening for all Christians  Mar 15, 2006
In the decades of the 1960s and '70s an iconoclastic counterculture emerged among the young. It was marked in their philosophies and in their music by a rejection of traditional values, especially those expressed as part of the Christian community. Eventually there came a kind of backlash as young men and woman began to experience a spiritual void in their "tune in, turn on, drop out" lifestyles. Many of them began to return to traditional Christian values and expressed their conversions in music. This return to basic Christian values and personal relationships with Jesus Christ was popularly referred to as the "Jesus Movement" and was evidenced by the emergence of a number of Christian bands, composers, and performers. For three historic days in a Southern California, Christian musicians gathered together to play their own special music. The two-disc DVD, "First Love: A Historic Gathering Of Jesus Music Pioneers is a record and a recording of that seminal celebration. "First Love" showcases 3 hours and 31 minutes of memorable and inspiring live performances, and in doing so reveals a rare look a the heart and motives of each artist as they each describe their personal transformations. "First Love" showcases engaging and entertaining performances by Randy Matthews; Barry McGuire; Annie Herring; Chuck Girard; Matthew Ward; John Fischer; Andrae Crouch; Jamie Owens Collins; 2nd Chapter of Acts; Terry Clark; Keith Green tribute with Melody Green; Randy Stonehill; Love Song; Paul Clark; Darrell Mansfield; and Honeytree. In addition to the two DVD discs, a double audio CD containing over 31 audio recordings of the performances is also included. "First Love" is enthusiastically recommended viewing and listening for all Christians, regardless of their denominational affiliations, backgrounds, or ages. It should also be noted that sample clips of some performances are freely available on the ExplorationFilms.com website.
