It’s An Invitation (General GRS-5437) 1974
Quasi-interesting acoustic male/female folk local press from Omak, Washington. Stuff like ‘One Tin Soldier’, ‘Gospel Changes’ and John Denver’s ‘For Bobby’ and ‘Sunshine’ are predictably ho-hum, but on the originals they seem to rise above their cover-band trappings. ‘Gentle Jesus’ is a particularly inventive track with a strange instrumental bridge incorporating piano and a trio of violins that sounds almost like a synthesizer. A few of the covers aren’t too shabby either: Godspell’s ‘By My Side’, Randy Matthews’ ‘Hallelujah Brother’, the Medical Mission Sisters’ ‘Child Of The Morning’ and John Prine’s ‘Blow Up Your TV’ (with wild fiddle action). Also includes the one-millionth cover of Larry Norman’s ‘Wish We’d All Been Ready’. (Ken Scott – The Archivist).
