Nobody Like / Door (Evangelical EVA4455) 1965 UK * Single
No matter how you slice it, the conclusion is inescapable: with regard to “Jesus rock” the British were there first. And not just a couple isolated bands – this was clearly a movement. The Envoys obviously had their ears in tune with the ’60s sounds of the Beatles, Hollies and all the rest. Kicking off with the chorus of “there’s nobody like Jesus”, this obscure single captures two of the best samplings of the whole gospel beat phenomenon, jangling along with a full-tilt high-energy electric sound. Male lead vocals, with female bgvs. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
A special thank you to Ed for providing the music.
