Race The Sun (CU 910) 1967








More Or Less Five, The - Race The Sun








Standard ‘60s priest folk in the manner of The Montfort Singers, The Paul Quinlan Trio or early Dameans. Fifteen songs, including ‘80 Soon In The Morning’, ‘Russian Alleluia’, ‘Bring Me A Rose’, ‘Every Time I Feel The Spirit’, ‘Take This Hammer’, ‘Tennessee Yodel Polka’ and ‘Why Did You Speak The World’. Basic format that includes acoustic guitars, electric guitar, upright bass, banjo and the four men’s voices. A lot of drab-to-tolerable material. The most interesting cuts are ‘Lost Friend’ (with mild electric jangle activity) and ‘Oh, World, You Turn Me On’ which borrows its electric guitar line from ‘Secret Agent Man’ and briefly shifts into the chorus from ‘Blueberry Hill’. From the Carmelite Fathers Guild in Washington DC. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
