Airborne (Sunbird SB 1001) 1976
A good half of this ﬁve-man California band’s custom album features prime ‘70s progressive-edged classic rock statements on the level of early Petra or Joyful Noise’s Nativity. “In A Word’, ‘Rollin’ One Out” (with a big drum solo), ‘Jesus Is Coming’ and ‘He’s The Lord Of The Harvest’ all fall into this category with strong electric guitar leads and hardy organ accompaniment. Also some fun comic country shenanigans ala Daniel Amos on ‘Have You Heard?’. Pop/ccm overtones take over on the remaining songs, sometimes a bit reminiscent of Glad. This original press has a blue cover photo of sunlit clouds. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
