Teen Challenge Praise-In (Vibrant TG-1001-LP) 1970?
Independent production from Teen Challenge of Orange County whose ministry was aimed at narcotics users. From a music perspective, the album is primarily of interest for an otherwise unavailable track by Charles McPheeters. That track would be ‘Gospel Train’, an upbeat tune with fast vigorous electric guitar strums, performed live. The spoken ex-druggie testimonies from Bob Theisen, Bill Green and Larry Reed are pretty cool, too (some fairly hard-core dudes there). I can’t imagine too many teens tuning into the album’s remaining traditional quartets, trios and whatnot, but you never know. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
I have not acquired this album yet.
