Released 16 years after the fact, this CD captures the country bumpkin fun of Daniel Amos circa 1977. The songs are full of catchy lyrics, tight harmonies and sweet pedal steel guitar; all part of Daniel Amos’ package as the “darlings of Calvary Chapel”. Recorded at the Maranatha Easter Celebration, April 1978, at the Anaheim Convention Center, the sound is wonderful with all the instruments and voices very clear and up front. Although in the liner notes Terry Taylor is somewhat apologetic for nearly everything, especially the audience, their appreciation is clear. Just on the front edge of the band’s new wave stage, there are a couple tips with a great ‘Hound of Heaven’ and a tentative, but adequate ‘Horrendous Disc’. ‘Mary Baker Eddy’ and ‘Secret Scripts’ are included from a 1979 PA show and sound fresh and confident. The bonus tracks are the fun part here. Taken from a practice demo cassette in late ‘78, all four tracks are great. An unreleased Mark Cook song, ‘You Always Run Away From Love’ is a pop gem. Taylor’s nod to Brian Wilson, ‘As Long As I Live’, leads into studio version of live fave ‘I Get Around’. The package is nice, too, including a center inlay of the concert flyer by Rick Griffin. BF 54:01 (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
