Jesus Music (T0 008) 1979
Best I’ve heard so far from Georgia’s Twelve Oaks studio (masterminded by Pat Terry Group members Sonny Lallerstedt and Randy Bugg), also home to obscure custom recordings by The Brillo Brothers, The Carpenter’s Tools, David Bruce Janzen and numerous others. Selah consists of Vic Berry (guitar, bass), Cindy Berry (keyboards) and Joe Carlan (drums, percussion). They have a gentle male/female folk-rock kind of sound where 12-string guitar, electric leads, and soft dreamy synthesizer backing fashion a rich mood similar to the best of Patmos, Suncast and The Pat Terry Group. Some good upbeat material, including the breezy title track and ‘He Loves Me All The Time’. Ballads like ‘God Is Love’, ‘1 Couldn’t Face Myself and ‘How Can I Refuse’ are equally compelling. Excellent guitar work from Sonny with solos that often evoke Phil Keaggy, rocking convincingly on heavier cuts like ‘You’ll Never Find It There’ and ‘The King Has Set Me Free’. Credits also list Al Holley on backing vocals and Randy Bugg on bass. From Covington, Georgia. 500 pressed. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
