I once saw a catalog describe Yours Ever as “either incredibly dull or higher-key ethereal folk”. listeners have often faced quandaries of this nature with folks like Dan Fogelberg, a performer I happen to admire and with whom Stewart & Kyle (their last names) sometimes strike a note of resemblance. My wife just said “that’s kind of pleasant” so I guess that clinches it. Their music is acoustic folk, soft and orchestrated, very melodic, with classy vocals, guitar, and piano. Occasionally drifts into innocuous pop Isn’t It Strange and Temporary Residence have their moments but not quite the charm. (Ken Scott – Archivist).

Chuck Butler had previously recorded on the early Maranatha sampler lps under the name Country Faith. Here on Parable he shares lead vocals with Joy Strange, joined by Don Kobayashi on drums and Pat Patton on bass. Musically they fall somewhere between folk-rock and soft rock: a mellow sound with nice acoustic guitars, a few ’70s string orchestration on the ballads ‘Sweet, Sweet Song’, ‘ I Know What It’s Like’ and ‘Song For The Church’, joined by brass on ‘Peter, James & John’ and the brisk moving ‘All Alone”. Decent electric guitar on ‘Let The Old Man Die’, (coutesy of John Wickham). Bill Sprouse contributes some fitting Fender Rhodes and organ moments. Other Maranatha folks involved, including Fred Field, Al Perkins, Darrell Mansfield, Bruce Herring, Jonathan David Brown and Erick Nelson. Very melodic stuff and an above-par early Maranatha release enhanced by decent songwriting. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).

Oden Fong - Come for the Children

Oden Fong - Come for the Children 1979 A & S (LP)

2. Natural Man
3. Crazy Voices
4. White Eagle
5. Selfish Man
6. Again and Again
7. Ready to Fly
8. Come for the Children
9. She Begins to Sing

Mustard Seed Faith alumnus Oden Fong’s first solo lp has much of the same lyrical depth that gave Sail On Sailor many admirers, the atmosphere reverie of ‘The Mask’ being a prime example.  The powerful seven-minute title track is pretty serious rock n roll, way heavier than anything on MSF.   ‘Crazy Voices’ and the rural rocking ‘White Eagle’ have some fairly crunchy guitar as well.  A few mild progressive touches here and there.  Also a hint of Fogelberg on the stately ‘Ready To Fly’.  Melodic pop-rock and moving ballads fill out the rest of this brilliant work, the gentle ‘She Begins To Sing’ being particularly lovely.  Of course it doesn’t hurt that Oden has one of the most stirring voices in the whole Jesus music scene.  Soft string orchestration in parts. Oden on acoustic and electric guitars, assisted by the usual gang of Maranatha musicians, plus appearances by Michele Pillar and Bob Bennett on backing vocals.  Fetching Rick Griffin cover art.   (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).

11. When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
12. Take My Hand Precious Lord
13. Get on Board Little Children
14. May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You

Obviously this ‘60s British pop star needs little introduction. But maybe like me you’ve tended to shy away from albums like this, figuring Cliff would be toning down his style for the Christian market. While it’s true that Good News contains mostly traditional hymns and string orchestrated pop ballads, there also happen to be several revved-up hip-swiveling white soul movers and shakers. The title track, ‘We Shall Be Changed’, ‘Go Where I Send Thee’, ‘Mary What You Gonna Name That Pretty Little Baby’ and ‘Get On Board Little Children’ all fall into this category, accelerating forth with brisk electric guitar, hot horns and soulful female bgvs. The back cover tells how he announced his Christianity at a 1966 Billy Graham Crusade in London. Later he starred in a couple Graham movies: Two A Penny and His Land. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).

5. Dem Verborgenen zuwider
6. Perelandra
7. Im Bragdon-Wald
8. Bilder einer Welt
9. Ausklang

If you get just one Eden album, make it this one. Perelandra is the group’s shining moment, a brilliant 5-star professional work that’s sure to satisfy the hunger of those who grew up on ‘70s progressive rock. Synthesizer lovers will have a field day here; this thing is absolutely drenched with multifaceted spacey soaring keyboards, all of them made even more bright and vivid by the flawless production. Eden has proudly achieved their own unique sound by balancing hard rock electric guitars and power synths with lyrical melodies and skillful classical instrumentation. Loud and aggressive one moment (‘Abgesang’, ‘Lichtlied’), drifty moody surreal passages the next (‘Er Wird Sein’). Some beautiful ethereal female harmonies with a choral-like quality, sounding particularly effective on the powerful seven-minute title track. A couple instrumental tracks: ‘Zwischenspiel’ and the intensely stirring ‘Im Bragdon-Weld’. Skillful violin and flute work, plus acoustic guitar, piano, even a sitar on ‘Bilder Einer Welt’. Don’t let the German lyrics dissuade you – you never understood what all those Yes songs meant either, did you? Some imported copies have an English translation enclosed – yes, it’s overtly Christian if that’s important to you. The album title is based on one of the novels in C. S. Lewis’ space trilogy. Once again the cover art is amazing. Deserves equal standing on the art rock pedestal with Jimmy Hotz and Arkangel. Also released on the German Eden label (EM20001) in 1981. (Ken Scott – Archivist).

All Saved Freak Band - Brainwashed

All Saved Freak Band - Brainwashed 1976 Rock the World / 2000 Hidden Vision (CD)

1. Peace Love and Rock'n' Roll
2. Ode to Glenn Schwartz
3. Seek Him
4. Don't Look Back
5. Lonely
6. Frog Alley
7. Messed Up
8. See the Flesh Fly
9. Smilin' Dog
10. Our Answer

Toughest to find of the four lps and understandably so.  If For Christians, Elves & Lovers is the mellower side of ASFB, Brainwashed is the flip sider of the coin.  All those blues rockers they’d been saving up get released here full force.  Plenty of heavy organ, harmonica, and of course Glenn Schwartz’s searing guitar fireworks.  This album is non-stop sizzling stuff, beginning with the danceable hand-clappin’ opener ‘Ode To Glenn Schwartz’ with its lean-‘n’-mean funky swamp groove.  ‘Seek Him’ kicks it up again for another fast-paced blues rocker, one that still finds room for the Massmann’s strings.  ‘Don’t Look Back’ rocks efficiently for seven minutes with some tempo changes, while ‘Lonely’ slows the pace down with an organ/violin melody to close side one (sounds like skating rink music).  Side two opens with ‘Frog Alley’, a weird creepy piece of boogie-woogie with Larry Hill’s husky vocals singing about voodoo and whatnot, followed by the hilarious ‘Messed Up’ in which Glenn rattles off his testimony at about 180 mph (while pickin’ out some sweet acoustic blues licks).  Kim Massmann takes over lead vocals for the final three songs: ‘See The Flesh Fly’ (a ghostly minor-key ballad), ‘Having A Ball At The Smiling Dog’ (another high-powered slab of electric blues) and the baroque folk ballad ‘Our Answer (The 54th Psalm In Old English)’.  This in an incredible album folks.  Several different vocalists and lots of new participants  — it’s hard to tell from the credits who was in the band and who was just hanging around for the session.  So much variety here, too — it never gets boring.  Get your brain washed now!     (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).

2. Come Out of Her
3. Eye of the Hurricane
4. Sons Come to Birth
5. This Bird (Sky High)
6. Prisms
7. Dawning Light
8. Intercessor's Blues

Psychedelic fire and brimstone doom monster with heavy Doors-ish influence and ferociously guttural screamed lead vocals that rival Jim Morrison. Slow intense lengthy climactic songs (only six of them) that burn with loud grungy guitars, letting up occasionally for psych-drenched hazy dream-scapes, with wah-wah, fuzz, reverb, tremolo all strongly represented. Strange apocalyptic lyrics (Virtually indecipherable without the lyric sheet) that are not your typical Christian fare by any means. Considered by many to be the Holy Grail of psych privates, hence the accompanying $2500 Whopper price tag. Cheaper alternatives exist: A11 ‘805 re—issue with a low-tech Xerox-looking band photo (enlarged from the back cover of the original) went in and out of print fairly quickly. A Euro CD with the same cover also exists. The original pressing comes in one of the most killer covers ever conceived: a die-cut jacket with a red filter revealing a moon inner sleeve. In late 1995 a deluxe vinyl limited edition was pressed nearly identical to the original, allowing budget-minded collectors to own a piece of this history in all its full glory. Re—issued on CD again in 1999 with bonus tracks. It don’t get any heavier than this! (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).

4. The Prophet
5. Time Has Passed
6. From This Place
7. Hope to Save
8. Judgement Day
9. Life Worth Living
10. Questions Why

Azitis (Pronounced “As it is”) is one very few Christian-themed albums that is solidly psychedelic in sound from beginning to end. Every song from this four-man Sacramento band’s custom lp is a winner, saturated through and through with psychy swirling organ sounds. Add to that strong melodies, gentle vocals, fuzz, phasing, reverb, wah-wah, flute and you’ve got a virtual time machine to the flower power era. The responsible parties are Dennis Sullivan (organ, piano), Michael Welch (guitar, flute), Steve Nelson (percussion) and Donald Lower (bass guitar). ‘(Creation) Lord I Saw You Cry’ starts things off with dissonant organ crescendo, chanting and wah-wah guitar, followed by the melodic ’60s pop/psych of ‘There Is An Answer’ and ‘Who Will Be’, the later propelled by heavily fuzzed bass guitar. ‘The Prophet’ is one of the album’s most powerful tracks, reaching intense fuzz/organ peaks as it deals with Revelation themes. ‘Time Has Passed’, trips out with moody surreal passages that sound like they were lifted from the middle of ‘In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida’, followed by ‘From This Place’, another killer track that builds to climaxes of thunderous drums, discordant guitar strums and surging frenzied organ. ‘Hope To Save’ brings in piano and acoustic guitar for a lyrical ballad. That leaves the apocalyptic ‘Judgement Day’ with its varied guitar effects and eerie echoed proclamations to close the album. Exceptional cover art of a gold cross emerging from planet earth. Mega rare, too. I can’t emphasize enough how cool this album is. It’s a true five-star monster if ever there was one. Re-issued on both vinyl and CD. The band also had a couple 45’s with non-lp tracks. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).

8. Blood
9. Rejoice
10. Street Walker
11. Alchemy


“Jesus rock at it’s crustiest” wrote Paul Baker in his book Contemporary Christian Music describing California’s hard-rocking trio Agape.  Hendrix fans  should take note here as the style is very similar, from the music right down ton Fred Caban’s bluesy vocals.  Caban is also the guitarist, John Peckhart plays bass and Mike Jungkman supplies drums and organ.  Mostly heavy blues rock – the high-quality turn-of-the-decade FM radio kind.  Not just a three-chord bash – these songs have mood and texture to them.  You’ll find quiet understated passages here as well as hard-driving guitar solos.  Atmosphere, too, as on the eerie ‘Rejoice’ which narrates tribulation prophesies against a hypnotic Doors-ish rhythm, enhanced by psycvhedelic guitar-induced missiles, rockets and earthquakes.  Includes slow blues rockers ala Clapton (‘Blind’, ‘Blood’), as well as fast ones (‘Happy’ and ‘Choose’).  ‘Man’ and ‘Trust’ are both heavily influenced by the Are You Experienced? era,  as is ‘Freedom’, a first-rate psych number with layers of fuzz and wah-wah guitars darting in and out like hornets over a constant throbbing two-note bass beat, marching snare drums, and Fred singing a hymn in a different key.  Weird!  Front cover is an absract b&w image of the face of Christ  –  reportedly a photograh of a natural image of melting snow against a black background.  The original and scarcest press has a photo of the band in concert on the back, while the later version has individual circular photos of the band members and manager Ron Turner.  The commonly used title Gospel Hard Rock appears only on the spine of the later press.  Re-issued on CD in 1996 with the bonus tracks ‘Street Walker’ and ‘Alchemy’.

Straight-forward hard-edged rock is what the Tunesmith label’s debut is all about. Not as radical as say Resurrection Band or Barnabas which is one reason I initially let this one go, but after reacquiring it later I’ve come to realize it’s good stuff. No real hints of their later new wave direction as Shallow Water seems more in line with ‘70s classic rock. Sandie Brock and Bob Hardy share the lead vocal spotlight while Bruce Wright lays down the guitar riffs. The title track, ‘Here Comes David’, ‘Jesus Star’ and ‘Fly Away’ all deliver solid driving up-tempo rock-n-roll action, while ‘Holy Roller Blues’ churns along slow, hard and bluesy. Also a heavy cover of Dogwood’s ‘Watergrave’. Softens a tad for ‘Rejoice’ (a track also found on Because I Am and Lonesome Stone), ‘Cup Of Water’ and a cover Sammy Hagar’s ‘Rich Man’. Some fitting organ and synthesizer complementing the sound here and there. Pointed lyrics endorsing commitment and simple lifestyles. The group was part of the Highway Missionary Society and was managed by Jim Palosaari. Gate-fold cover. Some copies on red vinyl. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).

Back cover states “this album is not a slick or watered-down album. It is rough and honest”. One of the first live Jesus Music concerts ever to be recorded, he was backed up by the group Sonlight.

5. No More Blues
6. Love Conquers All
7. Giver of Life

One of the more rock-edged albums on this label, though it tends to sound relatively tame nowadays.  Best viewed as a stepping stone between the country-ish acoustic rock of Darrell’s previous band Gentle Faith (also on Maranatha) and the loud blaring blues rock of his next lp, the classic Get Ready One almost senses the presence of a rock album that’s been slightly tempered by the desire for Christian radio play, particularly when it comes to the ballads.  Still a fine record though.  Best cuts in my estimation are amplified blues rockers showcasing Darrell’s harmonica: ‘That’s All Right’ and ‘No More Blues’ are both strong tracks, even if they aren’t as heavy as the style he would perfect on Get Ready.  “Children Don’t Run’, ‘Love Conquers’, ‘Every Night Every Day’ and the title track also all muster some soulful rock energy (aided by Anthony Dean’s electric guitar work), as does the slower gospel-edged ‘He Has Overcome’.  Denny Correll authored four of the album’s nine songs.(The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).

One of umpteen country-influenced efforts on the Maranatha label. Fred plays guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo and piano, joined by Maranatha stand-bys Jay Truax, John Mehler, Al Perkins, Erick Nelson and others. Less Eagles-ish than other albums on the label, with occasional pickin' and grinnin' ("The Last Train to Heaven" and "Country Life"), plussome slow stuff with steel guitar ("Suffer the Little Ones", "Home"). Saxophone tones down the rural edge on a couple tracks - in fact several of the songshave a light rock or MOR sound without any real country vibes. Two of the titles were originally written for films: "He Lives" for "My Witnesses" and "Country Life" for "Five Summer Stories". (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition)

HAVE YOU HEARD MARK HEARD?

If I were still at the university, I would compliment Mark Heard by saying that he is an artist, a thinker, and an iconoclast. Perhaps it would do more for his future in Christian music if, instead, I stress that he is gifted, sincere and in the Lord. Luckily, Mark is all of these. He is also honest, humorous, disciplined and very much in love with his wife.
Mark and Janet Heard met in New York City at a Christian youth gathering. They carried on a four-year letter-writing courtship because, they say, they were both "too shy to do anything else." They are a sweet, soft-spoken couple, almost retiring at times, but they are remarkable well-traveled, well-read and self-sufficient. For instance, Janet spins wool and knits with agility. She also travels with Mark when he goes overseas. They have been to Europe twice in the past two years, spending a total of seven months doing evangelical work in Switzerland.
Originally from Macon County, Ga., Mark grew up immersed in southern rock 'n' roll and Bible-belt theology. He got saved through the Jesus movement at age 17 and shifted away from rock because "Christians told him that's what Christians do-play in folk groups." He subsequently returned to rock, but his most recent album, Stop the Dominoes, is probably the rockiest yet, although it still draws strongly on the folk rock strains of the last two decades.
Today, Janet and Mark live in Glendale, Ca. Where they moved four years ago from Georgia towork on Mark's album for Solid Rock. They ran out of money and stayed. (Janet, who keeps trackof the Heard bank account, says their funds "go out more often than they come in," addingconfidently, "but the Lord always provides.")
The Heard's work in Switzerland is focused on assisting Europeans establish a strong foundationfor developing their own Jesus movement and contemporary Christian music. Recently, Mark recorded Fingerprints, his third album with a small new Swiss label. He hopes the album, which is available only in Europe, will help to discourage mass Americanization of Christian Europe and encourage Christians on the continent to develop their own relevant and contemporary art.
Mark's special interest in Switzerland stems from the two years he spent studying at L'Abriunder the respected Christian teacher Francis Schaeffer. Like many others, Mark journeyed toL'Abri to question and learn about his faith. He had attended the University of Georgia andmajored in biology, but during his studies discovered that the faith he carried was somehowincomplete.
"We were brought up to believe that if you're Christian, you have to do it a certain way, andif you don't, you're either not a Christian or there's something wrong with you," he offers.
"I'd been taught to accept the fact that God really does exist before I was a Christian. Andafter I was a Christian, I had accepted it and yet I had many questions about it. I wanted tobelieve with all my heart, but I understood that a belief apart from intellectual understandingwas mysticism; and as I understood Christianity, it was not simply a belief system whatever theresults of the belief were. I saw Christianity as a thing that had to be real or not in orderfor it to make sense.
"I have a lot of U.S. Christians tell me, "Oh, you go to Europe? It's a horrible secularsociety. They are all atheists!' But it's not any worse than the Untied States. We just havesmiling, yellow happy faces everywhere to help us think that God is involved somehow. But thisis still a secular society. It's still based on non-theistic presuppositions.
"I'm not saying we should all go to Christian schools; that would just compound theproblem," Mark continues, "but if we can't meet these questions with our minds now, if wecan't go out there and talk to the actual people who are involved and are staking their liveson a non-theistic system, if we can't answer their questions, we've missed it somehow. If wedon't get out there and do something on the intellectual level, then we're not doing our jobsas Christians. And I'm sad to say that right now, we're not - as a general rule."
Predictably, Stop the Dominoes is anything but your typical praise-oriented contemporaryChristian music. The arrangements, whether pretty ballads or bluesrock, are simple enough,but the lyrics are not. Mark's lyrics are not difficult to understand, but their poetryassiduously avoids cliches and address those problems of like that many Christians simplydon't want to hear-things like: life isn't exactly all it is cracked up to be 100 percentof the time, even if you are Christian; and just because you are, doesn't mean that the big,bad world with all its pain and confusion magically disappears.
For instance, "Stuck in the Middle:" "Half the world prays like the preacher/The other half don't even pray.../I'm too sacred for the sinners/And the saints wish I would leave."
"I feel separate from the Christian music industry, but I also feel separate from the secular industry," Mark explains. "My purpose isn't to write praise music. My purpose is to try and to expose some of my thoughts and emotions."
"One of the Dominoes" (Heaven help a timid child in a trendy tide...") would easily appeal to non-Christian listeners - if they ever had the opportunity to hear it. How many people today - whether in or of the world - can say with confidence that they have never felt lost in the chain reaction, mass-production mindset of modernity?
"When Christians hear 'Dominoes,' they tend to think, 'That's talkin' about the world out there and the other people. Yeah, they have problems. They get their values just from society. That's sad isn't it?' They identify with scolding this evil world," says Mark.
"But, actually, I'm also talking about Christians and Christian songs because many times we pick up our values in the same way. When something new comes along, we don't think. Or our thoughts are fads. We just take a person's word for it. We listen to a preacher and he says 'It's this way, blah, blah and blah.' That's TV knowledge. That's not mental or intellectual knowledge. We don't take the information that comes in and process it before it comes out of our mouths. When a trend comes along, we accept it... We're falling as dominoes."
"There are a lot of people who are Christians who would like to be more progressive in their writing, and yet they find it difficult because of the Pavlov's dog syndrome. They've heard over and over again, 'This is what you write, this is what sells.' And they know if their record doesn't sell, then they won't have a recording contract and then they can't say anything to anybody."Mark is currently completing production on Pat Terry's new album. Terry dissolved his band and quit writing some time ago. This new album, however, promises to help liberate him from the commercial culture trap Mark mentioned above. How has Mark escaped?"Escaped from where?" he responds, wryly. "Oh, I don't know that I have. There's always the element of somebody looking over your shoulder. I don't know how somebody would label what I'm doing - progressive or whatever. But I've grown kind of outside the Christian music industry, and I'd like to kind of keep it that way because I don't really want to know so much that I feel like I have to meet up to someone's expectations. I try to make myself write something like I want to hear, not what I think might please some record company."
Isn't that me oriented?
Mark's eyes light up. Suddenly animated with accelerating amusement, he responds: "Just because Christian culture contains certain trends, I don't think that the trends are necessarily Christian. The Christians are, but the trends maybe aren't. Where everybody else usually is, is the large area of commerciality, of things that are known to be saleable. It's safer if you're an artist to put your stakes there; if you're a record company, to hire artists that are like that - who write whatever the most people are buying.

Mark's eyes light up. Suddenly animated with accelerating amusement, he responds: "Yeah, it is, but see, when you ask that question, 'Isn't that me oriented?', that's another trendy term we have, 'me-oriented'; now everybody's launched onto that! We've latched onto other things, too, like - SECULAR HUMANISM! - and we throw out the baby with the bathwater. A lot of times we see one thing that's bad - and of course being 'me-oriented' is band, of course it's bad! Any idiot can see that it's bad, and especially any idiot that's a Christian too. And there are lots of them! Any fool can see that, and I'm no exception!" he laughs.
"But to say that-that 'I have no value, SUCH A WORM AS I!' - that kind of syndrome is not fair to God because He created each of us with an individuality, and He gave most of the Ten Commandments based on our individual rights as people - you're not supposed to take your neighbor's animals, you should worship the Lord, too, you shouldn't be the first, the Lord should be first.
"But we do have rights and we shouldn't take this TV, one-thing-pounded-into-stone, making rules of axioms, and making axioms of statements, and making statements of rumors. We shouldn't do that! We should look and see what somebody's saying.
"So, when you say 'Isn't that me-oriented?'", that's got negative connotations. But actually, my music IS me-oriented because, I happen to be me, ME! And I can't help it. "But whether or not that's selfish, is another question. I don't think it's selfish of me to write from my point of view. I think it would be selfish of me to write from your point of view!"Can we print that?
"Sure, I think it's great."
I stand accused.

Mark Heard - Fingerprint

1. I'm in Chains
2. Nowadays
3. One More Time
4. Epistle
5. Just the Same
6. Well-worn Pages
7. Intro
8. Gimme Mine
9. All the Sleepless Dreamers
10. Negative Charge
11. Brown-Eyed Sue
12. Es tut mir leid
13. Remarks to Mr. McLuhan
14. Threefold Amen

 Another big Heard rarity released only in Switzerland with only three of the thirteen songs appearing on other albums. Mix of acoustic, country and rock tracks, the latter having a more pared-down raw approach compared to previous lps (often a similar tone to Larry Norman and Randy Stonehill’s Solid Rock output from the same era). Noticeable maturity in sound as well, beginning to step into the style that would characterize his ‘80s albums Stop The Dominoes, Victims Of The Age and Mosaics. Gritty rockers (‘I’m In Chains’, ‘Gimme Mine’) balanced with acoustic ballads of the Appalachian Melody variety (‘Nowadays’, ‘Well-Worn Pages’). Intelligent insightful lyrics that reflect on society values (‘Gimme Mine’), existentialism (‘All The Sleepless Dreamers’), personal skepticism (‘One More Time’) and how Christians frequently oversimplify life (‘Negative Charge’). Nice country stroll ala Gram Parsons on ‘Just The Same’, with wonderful background vocals from Janet Sue Heard. Even a humorous live tidbit sung in German (‘Es Tut Mir Leid’) where Heard claims that he’s just a “dummer Amerikaner” (ie, a “dumb American”). Includes assistance by Peter Johnson (drums), Jon Linn (acoustic and electric leads, slide guitar), and Tom Howard (piano, synthesizer). As with all Heard product it’s exceedingly good. Re-issued on CD.   (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).

5. Lonely by Myself
6. Baroquen Spirits

8. Forget Your Hexagram
9. I've Searched All Around the World
10. Sweet Song of Salvation

Another excellent loud in-concert underground recording of Norman rocking with fellow long-haired compadres of his old band People. A live performance from UCLA in 1974 to raise money for the Israeli Fund. Includes a reworking of their hit song “I Love You’, melding into the Norman-Stonehill composition of the same name. Everything else is pretty much vintage Norman, from early tunes like ‘Forget Your Hexagram’, ‘Sweet Song Of Salvation’ and ‘You Knew What You Were Doing’ (aka ‘Baby Out Of Wedlock’) to Garden-era numbers such as ‘Baroquen Spirits’, ‘Fly Fly Fly’ and ‘Lonely By Myself’. Great guitar work and naked garage band feel, especially on the slowed-down explosive hard-rock/psych cover of ‘I Am The Six O’Clock News’. Heed the back cover advice “To be played at full volume”. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
