Happening Now! (Broadman 452-110) 1969

 

 

 

 

Happening Now - (Fnt)

 

 

 

 

Ah, the dark dank dreadful world of the Christian youth musical. The Broadman label in particular seems to have an endless roster of these things, often housed in wild colorful psychedelic covers. The whole genre mystifies me to no end with its theory that somehow easy listening choral schlock pop is the direct pipeline to raking in the souls of all those impressionable youths. Every now and then, however, one comes along that registers enough points on the cheese scale to justify keeping. Happening Now!, for example, has some memorable use of sitar, fuzz guitar and harpsichord, as well as a few interesting titles like ‘The Communication Gap’, ‘Ain’t Happening Here” and ‘Hymn To Rebellion“. Good for a few cheap laughs, though when you get right down to it, it really ain’t that bad. As long as you can get over that vocal barrier. Get hip, man! Be happening now! (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
