Sing A New Song (RSR 672) 1975?
Respectable homemade album of jangly feel-good out-in-the-country acoustic rock. Twelve songs written and performed by Cary Grubbs (guitar), Carl Imes (guitar) and Mike Joiner (electric bass), each clad in a different color plaid flannel shirt, sleeves rolled up, jeans, seated on the steps of some ancient log cabin. Pleasant acoustic guitar interplay and soloing as well as a nice overall relaxed atmosphere, like a stripped-down version of The Way or The Pat Terry Group. Also some stirring moody songs with a solemn, melancholy or loner presence, sometimes drawing near the style of the respected Listen lp. ‘Our Introduction’, ‘Going To Church’, ‘Invitation’, ‘Take Me Down’, ‘If You Don’t Have Love’ and ‘He’s The Only Way’ are some of the titles. Recorded in North Carolina. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
