Take Me Home (Neptune NR-1001) 1973
First-rate jangled hippie acoustic folk/folk-rock sounds from this two-guy one-girl outﬁt. Usually two acoustic guitars in there, one breaking away now and then to do some lead frills, plus electric bass. All of it overlaid with charming sincere harmonies. Varied moods, beginning with the joyful strum of the title track, followed by the fragile ballad ‘Jesus’ and the minor-key ‘The Roads (Faith, Hope And Charity)’. Gentle stirring melancholy presence within songs like ‘How Can I Show You’, ‘Faith Is Knowledge’ and ‘Conchita’s Song’. The trio crafts a heavier and more progressive tone on the closing eight-minute ‘Garabandal’, a solemn rural folk-rock piece with extended soloing that approaches the style of groups like Phoenix Sonshine. Long hair for the one guy, big cross necklace for the other. The group’s name was derived from their desire to build an orphanage. Generic ocean/sunset cover photo.
