Covers of Parchment songs

There are surprisingly few recorded covers of Parchment songs other than Light Up the Fire. But there are some ... and they span more than 30 years.

Parchment were very influential in the 1970s CCM scene - but the songs that were copied by other artists, other than Light Up the Fire, tended to be songs that were not their own, like Denomination Blues or Pack Up Your Sorrows.

Here is what I have found:

Better than Yesterday - Aslan, Paws for Thought 1976. Original on Light Up the Fire .

Ship Out on the Ocean - Mary McKee Meanings of My Life 1977 (Pilgrim). Original on Light Up the Fire.

Vision - New Horizon Vision 1979 (Pilgrim) Original on Rehearsal for a Reunion.

Corners of My Life -  Birch Book Tomorrow's Sun Will Rise the Same 2010. Original on Shamblejam

Does anyone know of any more?

More on New Horizon soon...
