Things I Can See (Acts 819 TA) 1975
The faults on Born Forever are forgiven on the improved Things I Can See which actually sounds like it had a budget. The Acts are more or less the type of royally mellow band you typically see doing Bill Gaither and Larry Wolfe covers, but they take a pretty decent stab at the light rock/MOR sound, including several originals. I especially liked the dreamy muzak/psych of ‘Reality’, the rockin’ rendition of ‘Day By Day’, the heavily-funked ‘Light Of The World’, and the slow blues of ‘He’s On His Way’. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
