For Now 1 (Concordia 79-2230) 1972?
What if the songs of Christian folk pioneers like Ray Repp, Peter Scholtes and others had their melodies re-written, then arranged and recorded in the hard-rocking style of Rare Earth? That’s exactly what the band Indelible Inc. (identified only on the back cover notes) delivers on this intriguing Lutheran production. These guys deliver a solid commercial rocking mix of soulful male lead and backup vocals, backed by sturdy rhythm guitar, lead electric guitar, bangin’ piano, bass and drums. ‘Thank You’ is one the loudest tracks, raw guitars cranking it out in heavy ‘I Just Wanna Celebrate’ fashion. Ditto for ‘What Will I Do?’ which interjects some funky clavinet amidst the mean guitars. ‘They’ll Know We Are Christians By Our Love’, ‘Go For Me’ and ‘Clap Your Hands’ all follow suit, while ‘Sons Of God’ and ‘Song Maybe For Teenage Christians’ show the softer melodic side of the group. Also an cool interpretation of Sydney Carter’s ‘Lord Of The Dance’. Closes with a piano-backed recitation of the Nicene Creed. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
