In The End Times (Gospel Now Sound 101831/2) 1975?
Typically uninteresting custom label scores a welcome exception with these four high school-looking guys from Marion, Ohio. Basic inexpensive home-made loner acoustic rock sound courtesy of two guitars, drums and sometimes harmonica. No solo riffs sadly, but they do write all their own songs and the jangly rural vibrations satisfy. Mostly mid-tempo strums carrying along titles like ‘Give Your Heart To Jesus’, ‘Decent Trip’ and ‘Jesus In The Morning’. ‘Do You Know’, ‘Lighted Avenue’ and ‘Hosanna’ are some of the more energetic numbers, the latter with some fairly pumped-up drum action. Also a short spoken-word-over-guitar ‘Invitation’ by Pastor Bob Swanger. Doesn’t quite have the edge of the respected Listen lp, but comes close a few times. Has that generic sundial face cover seen on several custom lps. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
