Happy Days (Toby 7083N13) 1976?
Three guys and their light-hearted folk-rock custom. It’s that down-South brand of pastoral folk-rock, with acoustic and electric guitars, bass, drums and harmonica, plus some melodic pop sentiment for a sound not too distant from the Pat Terry Group (‘Just Passin’ Thru’ duplicates PTG perfectly). A few light fuzz leads sprinkled about, sometimes upping the rock angle as on ‘He’s Coming Back’ and ‘Gift Of God’. Ballads like ‘New Life’ and ‘If’ get a dose of piano or Arp strings – can you say Bread? Not sure of the date but I’d guess around 1976 since ‘Insurance Plan’ has a reference to Kissinger and ‘Yesterday, Today & Forever’ swipes a line from Wings’ ‘Silly Love Songs’. Doesn’t bowl you over but pleasant enough. Recorded in Youngstown, Ohio. (Ken Scott – The Archivist).
A special thank you to Chuck for providing the music.
