War & Rememberance (1990)

Updated: Apr 3

War & Remembrance is a 2 CD compilation album by the Christian rock band Petra, released in 1990 on Star Song Records. Unlike the 1989 rock compilation album Petra Means Rock, this 2 CD (and two cassette), 28 song set is an extension of said album, but also contains their radio ballads. A look at the band's first 15 years of music and ministry, their journey starts on Disc 1 with "Come and Join Us" from their album of the same name to the end on Disc 2 with the final song "Parting Thought" from their self-titled 1974 debut album. The box set also contains a booklet info about the band's albums up to this point in their career. The box set was sold for a limited time and is now out-of-print.
