The Brethren (New Life NL-7205) 1972?


The Brethren front


Five Seattle guys that look right out of the prime of the Jesus movement, shown on the back cover playing in front of a giant tie-died sheet. A welcome good-natured acoustic rock and folkrock sound. From the photo it looks like the instruments are guitar, electric bass, drums,electric piano and tambourine. Also piano, organ vibes and congas. Larry Norman is well represented with covers of ‘I Wish We’d All Been Ready’ and a medley of ‘Can’t Take Away The Lord’ and Sweet Song Of Salvation’. They also do ‘My God And I’, Elton John’s ‘Love Song’, ‘Wracked By Pain’, Janis Ian’s ‘He’s A Rainbow’, and ‘He Will Come Again’ from Truth Of Truths. Beautiful cover illustration. Spokane label.      (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
