Surprise Surprise shortens their name to just Surprise, and start getting closer to their sound on their label releases. However, this demo still has some mod / neo-psychedelic influences. Side 2 of this is probably one of the most trippy awesome sequence of songs ever on any Christian album. The first song is literally what it says: sitars and drums. Then they cover the Beatles ode to LSD (no kidding). Then is an even trippier song about acid trips – but discussing the dangers of acid trips. Then, is case they might have offended any Christians or hippies, they cover “Happy Together” by The Turtles. Then they close it off with the Lord’s prayer to prove where they stand (I assume). Alex MacDonald is the only member listed on the tape, so I am unsure who else is on this release.
