P.M. Dawn would go on to release – on Gee Street Records – four studio albums, the platinum selling Of the Heart, of the Soul and of the Cross: The Utopian Experience in 1991, ‘93’s gold certified The Bliss Album…?, Jesus Wept in 1995 and ‘98’s Dearest Christian, I’m So Very Sorry for Bringing You Here.
