Two Good Hands (New Life NL-7214) 1972?


Bob Hoover and Doug Clark’s home-made production stirs up some interest here and there with its mellow rock and ballads sound. Piano and acoustic guitar are the featured instruments, backed by a basic rhythm section. Simple arrangements make for a live combo feel. Title track is a novelty number that includes solos from harmonica, slide flute, mouthpiece, Jew’s harp, ocarina, mouth, and arm (armpit?). Some cheesy nightclub moments, like their slow rendition of ‘I’ll Fly Away’ complete with loungy trumpet lead before picking up speed for a swinging organ solo. Then there’s the brisk infectious jazzy cocktail-groovin’ ‘Trusting In The Lord’ where the ivories get down and jam. Gate-fold cover. Same Spokane, Washington custom label as The Brethren and The Last Day. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
