Everything’s Just Fine…Or Is It? (no label 847C-5054) 1971
One of their better and certainly more obscure albums, recorded to benefit the Catholic Relief Overseas Aid Fund Appeal. Closest stylistically to the garagy electric folk and rock of Becoming One. Mostly new tunes with their usual ear to social needs, featuring titles like ‘What Share Of The Burden Is Mine’, ‘The Poor You’ll Always Have’, ‘Will We Ever Learn’, ‘I’m Alone’ and ‘Time’s Passing By’. Some subtle guitar effects and low-key organ work together to up the appeal. A couple pure acoustic ballads. Wah-wah and big fuzz turn the closing track ‘Reconciliation’ into an explosive low-fi garage psych classic. Comes with lyrics and teacher’s guide to drive the message home.
