Soul Concern (FourMost FM7122CS) 1971?






Soul Concern







Smooth soulful sunshine pop and ballads from the groovy “now sounds era”. Soul Concern are seven Campus Life folks (four guys, three girls; four white, three black) with happy layered male/female harmonies and (like their group name suggests) a hint of soul. A soft electric sound, heavy on the organ, occasionally livened up by the bass and drums. Mostly covers like ‘Easy To Be Hard’ (a touch of wah—wah here), ‘Reach Out And Touch’, ‘I Wish I Knew How It Feels To Be Free’, ‘Mighty Clouds Of Joy’ and ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’. The spiritual angle comes through member Lindy Hearne’s originals, namely ‘Sunshine Day’, ‘And I Believed’ and ‘Come To Jesus’. Not for everyone, although there seems to be a growing audience for these things Hearne would record some later solo albums. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
