Soul Peace (no label, no #) 1974?
Good co—ed folk-rock and light rock custom with crisp lively full electric sound as they perform mostly covers like ‘I Believe In Jesus’, ‘Oh Happy Day’, ‘I Wish We’d All Been Ready’, ‘Jesus Made Me Higher’, Sonlight’s ‘In Remembrance’ and James Ward’s ‘Holy Spirit’. Acoustic and electric guitars, piano, some nice lively drum work. They insert a reading of 1 Corinthians 13 in the middle of Elton John’s ‘Love Song’. I’m sure The Beatles would shudder at hearing ‘If You Give’ – a “Christianized” version of ‘If I Fell’ (“If you give your heart to Christ, you know you’re sure from the very start, that he would love you more than words…”). Back cover says they spread the good news throughout Chattanooga, Tennessee, so I assume that’s where they’re from. Message For You! (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Donald for the rear cover photo and the song list..
