Friendly country rock custom from five Glendale, California guys with a nice melodic flow, splendid acoustic and electric guitar work, arp, synths and piano (I think I heard a couple snatches of Marshall Tucker). Songs like ‘To Those Without’, ‘Take A Chance’ and ‘Turn Me Around” fall mostly into middle-ground territory – not too heavy, but not wimpy either. The electric guitar angle picks up significantly on ‘If You Were The Lord’, the title track and the ballad ‘You Changed My Life’, all with noteworthy soloing. Opens with a soft piano ballad (‘You’re Everything To Me’), plus there are a pair of easygoing mountain pickers with banjo, mandolin and fiddle (‘Good To Dwell’ and the instrumental ‘Elmer’s Tune’). Same general neighborhood as Mountain Glory, Heirship, Maskil, Hallelujah Joy Band, etc. Interesting band name which means “beloved of God” or something close. Neat cover graphics, too. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
