I Wanna Go Home (Good GRS-8002) 1978?
Wonderfully clumsy homemade—as-soup Indiana custom that would surely be forgettable were it not for the way-out-in-front bass, crude garagy rhythm guitar, and drums‘ It’s a stumbling joy as four girls with strained off-key harmonies work their way through priceless renditions of titles like ‘Sail On’, ‘Rise Again’, ‘Keep On Walkin’, ‘Give Them All To Jesus’ and ‘Two Hands’. ‘I Wanna Go Home’ takes the ‘Sloop John B’ song and Christianizes the lyrics. Same thing happens with ‘A Love Story’, a hilarious take on the Crystals ‘Then He Kissed Me’, the main line being changed to “oh how He loves me” – did I just hear someone rend their garments? Seriously, they skirt Shaggs territory on that one! More power to ‘em I say. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
