Petra captured in time

Album cover

Captured In Time and Space is the first live album from Christian rock band Petra. The album was recorded during three separate performances of the band in Tennessee and South Carolina during their 1985 tour, and it was released in June 1986 by Star Song Records.

It is the last album to feature lead singer Greg X. Volz and the last one to be produced by longtime producer Jonathan David Brown.

Album historyEdit

Captured in Time and Space was recorded during the Beat the System tour in 1985. The live album features excerpts from the following three concerts:

The album was produced and recorded by Jonathan David Brown. Remote recording facilities were provided by Reelsound Recording Company in Austin, Texas. Brown was assisted in the recording and set-up by Malcolm Harper, Mason Harlow, and Gordon Garrison. The live performances were re-recorded at Fireside Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, and re-mixed at Mama Jo's Recording Studio in North Hollywood, California with the assistance of Todd Van Etten.

Editing of the album took place in Rivendell Recorders in Pasadena, Texas, with thanks to Chuck Sugar, Bret Hurst, and Steve Dady. Like their previous records, Captured in Time and Space was mastered by Steve Hall at Future Disc Systems.

The cover artwork featured a return to the flying guitar motif that the band had used during three of their previous albums.
