This is the same New York outfit that recorded Time Is Slipping Away under the name The Good News Singers. That name isn’t referenced anywhere on this custom record, but it’s the same talented soulful jazz— edged rock style, The primary jazz angle comes from Rich Bisesi’s Vibraphone, heard spicing up original titles like ‘Maranatha’ and ‘Psalm 23’. Also some skillful electric guitar leads and flute passages. Alternates male and female lead vocals, often with a soulful flair as heard on covers of ‘Voice Of Jesus’, ‘My Father’s House” and ‘Oh Happy Day’, the latter done in medley with ‘My Sweet Lord’. Gets folky for the moody fast-strummed ‘Hosanna’, as well as their medley of ‘I Am The Resurrection’ and Sister Germaine’s ‘Love One Another’. Neat pink/purple cover photo of a turntable. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
