Amen (Excel no #) 1967 UK *

 

 

 

 

Fishermen, The - Amen

 

 

 

 

Primitive four—man electric beat outfit from the early British scene. Not nearly as energetic or original as The Crossbeats or The Peacemakers, but they make a fair run of it Some of the more traitional cover material really drags, but originals like ‘Working Man’, ‘For You’ and ‘God Commends His Love’ successfully find a plugged—in ‘60s groove. Slips into a tripped garage/psych mood for ‘Gracious Man” (mild glimmers of Holy Ghost Reception Committee #9). Includes renditions of ‘Amen’, ‘Just A Closer Walk’, ‘Peace In The Valley” and The Joystrings’ ‘Lord On His Side”. An outreach of Sunbridge Road Methodist Mission. Reportedly a 100 press item. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet.
