Free From Calling On You


The roommate thought he was picking up a new group for the collection when he scored this colored disc for the collection. I recognized the group’s name immediately though, Stryper. I always like to have more than one single or LP from an artist or group and since this one is such a fun yellow color, we brought it home sooner rather than later. Even if we had the song before, the difference of the color would lure me into purchasing again!

The name “Stryper” derives from the King James Version of the Bible. “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”. The reference, Isaiah 53:5, is frequently included as part of their logo. Stryper’s drummer, Robert Sweet, also created a backronym for their name: “salvation through redemption, yielding peace, encouragement and righteousness”.
