Happy And Alive (Freedom Light  NS-2038)  1972?

 

Johnson, Mike & Karen - Happy And Alive

 

Another choice entry from Mike’s post-Exkursions, pre-ccm era with wife Karen adding lovely vocals. Has the same mix of jazzy electric frills, folk-rocking, acoustic tunes, and subterranean rock that characterized Lord Doctor and Velvet Prince. ‘City!’ is fast and loud loud loud! A couple weird ones: the lazy buzzed-hippie hand-clapping title track and ‘I’m High’ performed live with just guitar and slurred vocals that make it sound like he really was high (though it’s actually an anti-drug song with references to getting “high on Jesus”).       (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
