Friends (Airborn AR2005) 1973
One of the many co-ed Campus Life/Youth For Christ groups that seemed to be everywhere in the early seventies. As far as quality music goes the whole genre is pretty much forgettable, but Friends makes the cut for 1) having a folkier 12-string less “now generation” sound than the others, 2) actually including a few guitar leads and 3) including three (count ‘em) original songs, a couple of which are in fact quite good. Some of the covers include Love Song’s ‘Two Hands’, The Way’s ‘If You Will Believe’, Cat Steven’s ‘Peace Train’ and the Elton John song from which they took their name. Produced by Ed Kilbourne. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
