Praise You Lord (QCA 904037-2663) 1975?
An unscheduled stop at a Lancaster, Ohio junk shop rescued this obscure buried gem from certain oblivion. The simple hands-releasing-a-dove illustration didn’t look promising and neither did the word “gospel” in the band name, but there was a song called ‘Jesus Rocks’ which didn’t sound like anything traditional so I ﬁgured what the hey. Turns out it’s a pretty decent amateur attempt at progressive country and Southern rock. The aforementioned tune, ‘Twenty-Five Hours To Sing’, and ‘Satan’s Army’ are all solid driving rockers in the Skynyrd tradition and the electric slide work on a couple cuts gives a faint glimmer of the Allman Brothers. ‘Words’ has a moving ethereal drifting groove with one of the lengthier guitar solos of the set. Custom label from the Cincinnati area. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
