Praise (Creative Sound CSS 1580) 1974





Pretty quiet Paducah, Kentucky folk-rock co-ed 7-piece. The piano is more prominent than the guitars a lot of the time. Includes covers of songs by Chuck Girard (‘Since I Opened Up The Door’), Kenn Gulliksen (‘Charity’), Tommy Coomes (‘Hidden Treasure’), and Phoenix Sonshine (‘Shinin’ In The Light’). Also a few original songs: the opening ‘Jesus – The Son Of God’, the Gamble Folkish ‘The Garden’ and the closing ‘The Last Supper’ (which bears resemblance to Phoenix Sonshine). Your basic nice Jesus music album. Member Randy Rothwell would later become a big name in praise/worship music. Released in the UK on the Dovetail label (Dove 27). (Ken Scott – The Archivist).
