Rohrbacker, Hendren & Kingen (RA  2176LPS)  1975

 

 

Exceptionally talented Oregon trio that blends the jangly energetic folkrock guitars and gentle close-knit harmonies of The Byrds with FM country rock, bluesy classic rock jamming and flowing summery CSN-ish soft rock sounds. Instrumental lineup is the same throughout with the dual electric guitars of Bob Rohrbacker and Bob Hendren vibrantly resounding on every track, including some superb lead work from Mr. Hendren. Mark Kingen handles bass while a couple friends alternate at drums. The opening salvo of ‘Look Towards Tomorrow’, ‘You’re In My Life’ and ‘Near To Me Now’ is especially strong. An obvious professionalism and “true rockers” mentality at work here making this outing a quantum leap above most homegrown Christian projects. A virtually unheard of 500-press mega-rarity. Phenomenal!    (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
