Seth (Shalom S-122) 1974








Seth strikes me as sort of a Christian version of The Carpenters. Jonathan David Brown’s keyboards, song-writing and production frequently come close to duplicating their sound while Debbie Newell’s vocals strike more than a passing resemblance to Karen. Dripping with strings and horns, Seth can at times be dreadfully mellow. Yet there’s often a catchy hook in their mix of folky pop, MOR pop, light-hearted country pop and jazzy pop – if you’re gonna make that kind of a record, well, I suppose this is the way to do it. They even have their artsy moments, most notably the closing 8-minute ballad ‘Help The Man’ which has a good electric guitar climax and fadeout. Horn section by “Odyssey”. Wild psychedelic cover art exploding with color. (Ken Scott – The Archivist).
