Hymns For Now 1 (Concordia no #) 1972

 

 

From the way these albums are packaged you’d think they were merely an instrumental companion to the folk hymnbooks of the same name. What’s not obvious from looking at the cover is that there’s a quaint little co-ed folk band interpreting these songs.  The first two albums have a simple low-tech charm that breaths life onto late ’60s youth standards like ‘They’ll Know We Are Christians’, ‘Gonna Sing My Lord’, ‘Lord Of The Dance’, ‘All My Trials’, ‘Sons Of God’, etc.,utilizing guitars, bass, banjo, harmonica, and cheesy organ.  Don’t confuse these albums with the ones that just say For Now One and For Now  Two – those are Indelible Inc.’s hard rock re-vamp of the same songs.  The third lp identifies the group as Chronicle and from what I can tell it’s a different band.  The organ is gone and the vocal harmonies are tighter, closer to the sound of Jack Miffleton and The Group.  The songs are more obscure, too, but appeal is most certainly still there.   (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
