It’s A New World (FourMost FM 7005CS) 1970?



A lot of these early FourMost albums really aren’t all that bad. Check out The New World’s upbeat cheese-organ electric cover of ‘Where Do I Go?’ from the musical Hair. Or their groovy feel-good rendition of Free Design’s ‘You Could Be Born Again’. A couple more unusual song choices in ‘Theme From Valley Of The Dolls’ and Zager & Evans’ ‘2525’. ‘Edifice’ also works as a solemn organ-backed acoustic ballad. Cuts with a more spiritual angle include ‘Tramp On The Street’, ‘They’ll Know We Are Christians By Our Love’ and the title track. Don’t worry about the ‘With the Larry Mayfield Orchestra” caption on the front- that may mean occasional light brass on a few songs, but it’s basically a simply-arranged small-band electric pop and folk kind of sound here. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet.  Thank you Donald for the rear cover photo and the track list.
