Agape Bro’s (MK87-763) 1978
Aka The Agape Brothers. Amateur folky electric soft rock custom from ﬁve Illinois guys. Mostly slow-moving harmonized songs, periodically softened by strings and keyboards. Includes a number of original songs written by member Dennis Schillinger, as well as covers of Andrae Crouch’s ‘It Won’t Be Long’ and Love Song’s ‘Little Country Church’ (decent fuzzy guitar solo on the latter). The electric guitars get heavy for a brief moment on ‘Will We Ever Learn?’. Some average stuff, some pleasant stuff Comparable maybe to Brother Love or Common Brothers Band (must be a Brothers thing). Thick primitive looking gate-fold cover with drawings of the guys’ heads on the front. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Donald for the inside gate-fold & rear cover photos.
