Jekyll & Hyde (2003)


Jekyll & Hyde is the twentieth and final studio album by the Christian rock band Petra. It was released on August 19, 2003 and is their second album on Inpop Records. The title of the album is based on Robert Louis Stevenson's 1886 novella

Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.


Newsboys lead singer and founder of Inpop Records Peter Furler handles the production duties as well as play drums on the album, after the departure of Petra drummer Louie Weaver. Fans started sending e-mails to the record company asking them for a more straightforward rock album. Inpop agreed to the idea and they started working on Jekyll & Hyde.


With just the duo of Petra founder and guitarist Bob Hartman and lead singer John Schlitt, the band hired Greg Bailey as a bassist, but only sang backing vocals on this album and Bailey collaborated with Hartman in writing the song "Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda." Hartman has writen all ten songs and brought in studio musicians to fill in the rhythm section. Jekyll & Hyde returns Petra to the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart peaking at number 22. A Spanish version called Jekyll & Hyde en Español was released the following year. Petra earned their final Grammy nomination for Jekyll & Hyde as Best Rock Gospel Album.
