Have Faith (no label  LPS-811)  1970?


While the record fairy seems to have distributed an ample supply of You-N-You albums across the country, known copies of their other recording Have Faith seem to be almost non-existent. An equally good lp with the same mix of organ, bass, drums and percussion behind the acoustic guitars. Similar to You-N-You in a lot of ways (you can definitely tell right away it’s them), but different in others (minimal female vocals, not quite as “dreamy”, sometimes pushing more toward folk-rock than folk). A couple songs appear on both lps: the title track and ‘This Is A Man’ (a much slower version). Includes covers of ‘Into Your Hands’, ‘Hear, O Lord’ and ‘Joy Is Like The Rain’, all rendered with the group’s characteristic strum. The vibrant ‘Let There Be Thunder’ has some excellent Latin action going down. Includes three instrumentals: ‘Dock Of The Bay’, ‘Today’, and a rather unique version of ‘Greensleeves’ with nice psychy organ backing and flamenco-style picking.    (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
