Forever Together (Soul Quest SQ101R) 1974
The soft pastoral rock sounds of this five-man Wisconsin band reflect much of the same spirit as the cherished Horizon lp from Florida. The music coasts along in a wholesome electric format supported by airy background harmonies and melodic piano accompaniment. Bill Eisner heads up the group, providing all the songwriting as well as acoustic guitar, organ and most of the lead vocals. The rest of the guys contribute piano, synthesizer, electric guitar, bass and drums. Forever Together has a certain authenticity about it, refreshingly lacking any Arp-string MOR emulsifiers that sometimes crop up on lesser country rock acts. I dig the whole album, but three tracks in particular stood out to me: the near 7-minute ‘Why Don’t The People Understand’, the rural ballad ‘Look To Calvary’ with its simple deep wistful guitar lead, and the closing song ‘A Child Grew Up’ which has a nice psych-edged vibe.
