The Carpenter (Impact R3168) 1972?
One of those orchestrated contemporary choral rock productions that has enough periodic electric guitar, organ, spacey harmonies, electronics, avant garde, dissonance, funk/soul and all that stuff to give it an entertaining quasi-hipness. Solo vocalists alternate with the choir while backed by varied rock and pop instrumentation, plus strings and brass. Of course there’s some pop, ballads, ragtime and easy listening in there as well. Described as “a musical about the God-Man from Nazare heavily centered around the character of Thomas (who also represents the doubting contemporary American). Music by Otis Skillings and Jimmy Owens, lyrics by Campus Life editor Harold Myra. Should satisfy those who can appreciate the subtle mod grooves within productions like Natural High and Tell It Like It Is. Fold-out Unipak cover. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
