Seeing Things As They Really Are (Rite 34506 WHA-0133)  1974?

 

For coming up with an original band name I’d say these guys deserve a 10.  Don’t ask me to pronounce it but it’s a Sanskrit word which when translated equals the lp title.  “We selected this rather unique name because it depicts what we have found to be true since we started seeing through the eyes of Christ”.  For the most part this is a delicious custom with resonant electric guitar leads and psychy organ imbruing plaintive folkrock originals like ‘God’s Love Song’ and ‘Stop And Think It Over’ with grace and charm.  Likewise ‘Indian Prayer Poem’ and ‘Habakuk’ are both passionate acoustic lamentations, the female duo on the latter particularly striking in their celestial harmonizations.  Gaither’s ‘Get All Excited’ benefits from a brief drum solo and Crouch’s ‘It Won’t Be Long’ merits a thumbs up for its cheeseball organ accompaniment.  A rather plain but intriguing black and White cover photo of cross and Bible at an alter alongside electric bass and snare drum.   (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
