Timetable (Shekinah S-101) 1978?
This Reidsville, North Carolina group has a soul tinged light rock style that benefits from a heavy soaking in mellotron. Most of the songs on their custom lp progress slowly while backed by lush instrumentation (mainly mellotron) and soulful male lead vocals. Additional instruments include acoustic guitar, piano, harpsichord, Arp synthesizer, electric bass and drums (I think I hear an organ and clarinet in there as well). A couple upbeat songs – ‘He Found Jesus’ and ‘He Makes Me Happy’ – the latter suggesting a Chicago or Blood, Sweat & Tears without the horns. Tempo changes and even an energetic drum solo can be found on ‘Open The Door’. Nice drumming and dramatic buildup on the closing power ballad ‘The Feeling’s Gone’. A handful of weaker cuts are bogged down by gospel or country influences, but overall a satisfying record. Guitarist Barry McGee and Jeff Duffield have also done solo projects.
