A Band For All Seasons (Myrrh MYR 1030) 1975  UK *

 

 

 

This three—guy two-girl British group opens their album with a delightful brisk folk-rock/pop tune ‘We Can Be Together’. ‘High On Jesus’ also has a lively folk-rock vibe helped along by saxophone. Other songs sometimes bring to mind the string-orchestrated piano soft-rock sounds of Nutshell — not too surprising since member Maureen McCafferty would later go on to join that group. Pop/MOR vibe to a lot of the tracks, although fuzz guitar tries to give a lift to a few like ‘You Won’t Laugh’ and ‘More Light & Truth’. Includes covers of ‘Jesus Is My Kind Of People’ and ‘I Knew Jesus Before He Was A Superstar’ before closing with a version of The Strawbs’ ‘Benedictus’. Some mandolin and mellotron in here. Produced by John Pantry.   (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
