"I Hear Your Hand" and "Give Me a Sign" Videos

      

Inspired by Rock Gospel for the Deaf, SOT member Dan Robbins, with friend Mary Jane Rhodes, wrote two songs, which were used in national Deaf Awareness TV Spots funded by Quota Club International and National Women's Grange. These deaf awareness classics are "I Hear Your Hand" and "Give Me a Sign." Dan recorded these songs with Sons of Thunder, and they were released on a 45 rpm record in 1974. Dan, Rita Corey, and a team of hearing-impaired youth produced videos of the songs as well. They are posted on YouTube.

Sons of Thunder's Albums and TV Documentary

    
During their 7-plus years together, Sons of Thunder produced four LP albums . . .
     

Till the Whole World Knows (1968, Zondervan Records ZLP-7545). This was the first nationally-distributed album by a Christian rock band in the U.S. It featured eleven songs, including nine originals and one written by a friend and recorded for the first time (“Those Who Wait on the Lord”). The album was recorded at Rodel Studios in Washington, D.C., and engineered by Nelson Funk. Tedd Smith, who was Billy Graham’s pianist, also helped with the production and arranged the contract with Zondervan.
   

Day Follows Night (1972, Bronte Records BRS 1001). Sons of Thunder’s second album was recorded at Track Recorders in Silver Spring, Maryland, and engineered by Cory Pearson. It included five originals, a cover of Larry Norman’s “Sweet, Sweet Song of Salvation,” and three others, including "Early in the Morning," "I Heard the Voice," and "Carpenter Man."
      
     
    

Live at Virginia Beach (1973, Bronte Records BRS 1002). SOT’s third album was a compilation of live recordings made during a four-night appearance at Virginia Beach’s Upstairs Coffee House, in August ’73. SOT’s technician Duane Self recorded and produced the album on a four-track Teac reel-to-reel machine. In the spirit of the times, it was issued with the appearance of a “bootleg” album, in a white cover with a rubber-stamped title.
    

Rock Gospel: Sing and Sign (1973, Bronte Records BRS 1003). The band’s fourth album featured live selections from a “Rock Gospel for the Deaf” concert presented, along with the Rock Gospel signing team, at Gallaudet College for the Deaf in Washington, D.C., in November ’73. The concert was recorded by Bias Studios of Arlington, Virginia (now located in Springfield, Virginia). (Please see our Rock Gospel page for more information about about the Rock Gospel for the Deaf concerts.)
    

Television documentary: Rock Gospel for the Deaf (1973). Sons of Thunder also produced a one-hour documentary for Public Television, “Rock Gospel for the Deaf.” SOT and the Rock Gospel signing team recorded it at WETA’s studios in Washington, D.C. in December, 1973, and it aired on many public TV stations around the U.S. in 1974. For more information on this program, and the Rock Gospel for the Deaf ministry, through which SOT presented about 25 concerts in 1973-74, please see our Rock Gospel page.
