Things Today… Better Than Before (Cherish NR2191) 1975?


Free Joy - Things Today Better Than Before


It’s that pop/folk/MOR “now generation” thing – more beaming faces to file next to Armageddon Experience, New Folk, Great Commission Co, etc. Music like this isn’t a lot of people’s mainstay but hopefully you’ll let these Floridians make the cut with their well-produced custom lp. Bill Butterworth wrote most of the tunes so it’s a break from remakes of ‘Get Together’, ‘Oh Happy Day’, ad-nauseam. The vocals can sometimes be too light and smooth but other times have the appeal of The Association’s harmonies. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
