"Claremont 56 sublabel with another collection of stunning disco tracks. Track one is a peak into the album by JAZ that will be released later this year and is a driving disco number for peak times. On the flip manchester's Cosmic Janes edits are not the obvious choice of tracks..but therefore much more interesthing then many of the edits comibg out these days. Diving into the 80's obscure pop releases we have some excellent tracks that will get the party started!! well done!" (Flexx)
Available from Juno, Piccadilly, and Flexx.

"People become semi-Pelagians the day (after) they become Christians. This is the heart of it. People in the world, including Christians, are Pelagians by nature. They want to do it for themselves. 'Control' is the key word or concept. But control fails massively at some specific, vulnerable point of opening. When this happens, people are undone and they open up to grace...But the moment things are patched up a bit, life morphs back toward control, into semi-Pelagianism. Semi-Pelagianism is the compromise Christians force between the grace that saved them and the Pelagianism inherent in their human nature. It is the Achilles' heel that besets Christians and all the Christian churches." (pp. 92-93)
