Won’t You Pass It Along? (Concert PD 62347) 1968?
Some left—ﬁeld Episcopal gents from Berkeley Divinity School put their heads together for this primitive folk oddity. Side one is your basic liturgical folk mass, the kind of thing you’re liable to ﬁnd on the very early FEL or World Library labels. It features roughly a half-dozen men’s voices backed by guitars, banjo and wash-tub bass. Side two is more interesting since it focuses on individual performances in the ‘60s folk-singer tradition. Bob MacArthur and Budj Bushong emerge as the main participants, contributing originals like ‘Indifference’, ‘Five O’clock in The Morning’ and the more caustic Dylan-inspired ‘Talking Circular Me’ (in the talking blues style) and ‘The Price Of Reading’ (harmonica blues). Very early look and feel with simple black-and-white paste-on cover. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
