Love Song (Good News GNR—08100) 1971

 

 

 

 

 

Landmark Jesus music foursome of Chuck Girard, Tom Coomes, Jay Truax, and Bob Wall whose debut soft-rock offering is a cherished classic of the Jesus generation. Released on one of the premier the burgeoning Christian labels, this album deserves all the praise it gets. Or should I say the God who inspired it, for it captures the worshipfulness, excitement, and simplicity of the artists’ new-found faith in a beautiful way. And the decent production doesn’t hurt either. Love Song perfected the recipe for melodic pop ballads (or “power” ballads like ‘Freedom’) with side orders of folk-rock and country tossed in. ‘Two Hands’, ‘Little Country Church’, ‘Front Seat Back Seat’ – what new creature from the early days hasn’t heard of these tunes? Christian music has since forged on into other areas, from the artistic to the evangelistic to the nauseating. But considering the era in which this album was created, it’s doubtful that expressions like that of Love Song will ever be duplicated. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
