The Prodigal Son is the second posthumous release by American contemporary Christian music pianist and singer Keith Green. His widow Melody Green assembled it from unreleased material and released it in 1983. The album features one of his most notable songs, The Prodigal Son Suite, originally written by Green in hopes of completing a full rock opera based on Biblical stories and parables. Another component of that project - On the Road to Jericho, telling the story of the Good Samaritan-was. Текст песни: I was done hoeing, out in the fields for the day I was thinking of going, I had to leave right away My life was just fading, and though I felt so alone The nearest young maiden was, a full days ride from look up other Keith Green songs, they're really good and most of them contain very good messages. This guy named Jason Lon Jacobs has made some pretty nice covers too, you should look him up. God bless. The Prodigal Son Suite. Keith Green's widow, Melody, compiled this album a year after her husband's death in an airplane crash in 1982. The highlight of the record is unquestionably the twelve-minute rock symphony, The Prodigal Son Suite. Green wrote this piece with the hope of completing a full-length rock opera based on Biblical stories. A virtuoso on piano even in his early 20s, Green and his orchestra tell much of the story with cinematically sweeping instrumental movements. Album 1982 8 Songs. The Greatest Hits. Keith Green Live.
