I Am He Said (Inspiration ISLP 103) 1976








Jimmy Mamou - I (Fnt)







Here’s your chance to let loose those lime-in-de-coconut urges lurking deep within you. From the state of Hawaii Jimmy Mamou proudly greets you with his intensely impressive Afro and killer sideburns. Assisting Jimmy are a couple familiar names in Harvest Flight’s Evan Williams (producer. guitar, bass, drums, congas, piano, organ) and Dave Diggs (drums). Jimmy plays guitar, tambourine, cabasa, maracas and piano, while others add harp, violin, synths and background vocals. There’s some fun light-hearted steel-drum island pop-rock here to something you don’t hear too often in Christian music. Elsewhere it’s a fairly diverse set that includes some lightly jazzed-up rock (you’d expect that with the Williams/Diggs teaming), along with some tame flashes of ‘50s rock, black gospel and subdued Sly Stone-ish r&b. Says he came to Jesus after a 1971 drug overdose. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
