Aleithia

 

 

 

 

 

Plenty of home-grown appeal in this Lexington, Kentucky rural folk-rock outfit’s custom lp on the collectible Airborne label. There are only a few originals on here – too bad because they’re the best tunes, like the jangly title cut (Greek for “‘truth”) with its inspiring Fender Rhodes piano groove. The five guys and two gals fill out the remainder of the 1p with acoustic interpretations of Larry Norman (‘The Outlaw’), Ron Moore (‘First Person’), Love Song (‘Brand New Song”, “Front Seat, Back Seat’) and John Denver (‘Farewell Andromeda’). Stirring moody rendition of ‘Love Song’ (the Elton John/Leslie Duncan tune), Piano becomes the primary instrument for covers of Elton John’s ‘Friends’ and Edgar Winter’s ‘Dying In Love’. Nice wholesome 6 and 12-string acoustic guitar presence throughout. It’s that Jesus music folk-rock sound in all its wonderful simplicity. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
