Jesus People (Creative Sound CSS 1560) 1972?
Jesus Power. Jesus People. Jesus Sound Explosion. Jesus Loves You. Just keeping track of the album titles from this era drives ya batty. Kicking off with a “Gimme a J !” Jesus cheer, the bulk of this mostly live lp was recorded at the Hollywood Palladium. Rockers oughta be tickled to see three tunes by Ron Salsbury & the JC Power Outlet in top form, only one of which appears on their studio albums. But the real winner here is Morning Star Gospel Rock Band cranking out a real raw hard-rocker. Harvest Flight’s two tunes are actually studio cuts from their Destiny lp, as is the Wedgwood song. Gentle Persuasion provides a pair of more traditional gospel numbers. A few raps, a couple audience sing-alongs where they forget the words and sing out of sync reality I guess. Uneven, a bit sloppy at times but some ﬁne tuneage amongst the dreg. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
