Live...Radically Saved (1988)

Updated: May 3


Live...Radically Saved is the second live album by Christian singer - songwriter Carman, originally released on February 22, 1988 by Benson Records and reissued in 1992 by Sparrow Records. The musicians and backup singers recorded their parts in the recording studios with Carman and a live audience recorded at the Brady Theatre in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The album was produced and arranged by Keith Thomas.


Radically Saved is one of Carman's best selling albums of the late 1980's with some energetic songs like "Lord of All," the title song, "No Way, We Are Not Ashamed" and "Jericho: The Shout of Victory." "Soap Song" is a short satirical song in which Carman sings a Christian narrative with the use of name dropping daytime television dramas like One Live to Live, Days of Our Lives and Guiding Light among others. Radically Saved climbed up to number 2 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart. Carman also released a companion live concert video on VHS of the same name a few months later. The live video features tracks not featured on the live audio as such as his classic songs "Revive Us, O Lord" and "The Champion."


Both the album and video were certified Gold in 1990 by the Recording Industry Association of America. It is officially Carman's first Gold certified album, without the benefit of crossing over into the mainstream market. Carman was nominated for four Dove Awards for Artist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year and Long Form Music Video of the Year and ended up winning in the latter category.


NOTE: the 21-minute track "God of All Nations" Medley only appeared on the cassette and CD versions of Radically Saved when it was originally released. It does not appear on the digital version.
