Blessed Promises (HG—001) 1982
Light rock custom offering from Tucson, Arizona group. Easygoing style with piano and electric guitars, guy/gal harmonies, folky and popish at times, aided by some 2nd Chapter Of Acts touches. Includes covers of Janny’s ‘More Than Conquerors’ and 2CA’s ‘Mansion Builder’, along with several original songs by member Michael Skiles. The band finds itself in a rare rock moment on ‘Know My God’ where loud buzzing lead guitar makes itself known. ‘What Would It Take’ is a decent acoustic ballad with gentle synthesizer backing. Comparable to your average mellow record on the New Bom label. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
