Power & Light Co. (Today T501) 1970? Canada *
Happy co-ed octet with smooth vocals doing happy lively versions of contemporary gospel numbers like ‘Confidence’, ‘He Touched Me’, ‘Power To Choose’, ‘Just As I Arn’, ‘Reach Out’, etc. The brass angle is oﬂen caked on thick, although a few songs like ‘I Wish We’d All Been Ready’ scrape by with purely acoustic arrangements. Best cut is the ham—free ‘Trust Me — Psalm’ with some decent moody electric guitar. Slightly better than most of these Campus Life/Youth For Christ groups, even remotely creative in parts (the vocalese on ‘Coming Again’), but it’s still basically that contemporary gospel sound. Same Canadian label that released more interesting albums by The Carpenter’s Union and The Potter’s Clay. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
I have not acquired this album yet.
