I Love Jesus (Lamb & Lion LL-1031) 1977
This six-man California outﬁt spends most of their time in light rural rock territory. Fortunately they overcome their periodic mellow orchestrated MOR tendencies to produce some worthwhile songs. ‘A Purpose’ is good acoustic rural rock, its progressive edge enhanced by synthesizer and lead electric guitar. ‘Come To Me’ is another strong cut with a moody quality that’s on par with The Way, String synth used here and there, as on the pastoral ballad ‘Our Lives’. The jazzy brass on ‘Children’ rings a bit of Chicago, while ‘There’s More To Life’ supplies the jew’s-harp electric hoe-down number. Kind of unfocused as a whole, but still deserves company with Mountain Glory, Simple Truth, Children Of The Light, Fred Field, you know, all those easygoing country dudes.
