Closer Than Ever (Greentree R-3530) 1978




The third lp from this highly glossed orchestrated pop/MOR male/female outfit has a few interesting moments. If you happen to be putting together a Christian disco compilation, you’ll definitely want to include ‘Stone Heart’, a classy polished dance-floor thumper. ‘Touched By Love’ and ‘If You Know’ are also moderately fun attempts at ‘70s funk, even if it is the toned-down ccm variety. “Still Up Walkin’ has a breezy melodic soft rock groove with a couple decent wah-wah guitar – solos. One instance of brassy gospel swing (‘Starlight Praise’) and several massively mellow ballads. Some of the members carried on into the group Bash ‘N The Code.
