New Neighborhood (Creative Sound CSS 1569) 1972



Six happy co-eds with a big brassy pop style that mirrors Ralph Carmichael projects like Natural High and Tell It Like It Is. Some of these songs have appeared on the Creative Sound sampler albums Mystery Revealed, Jesus Festival Of Music and Ultima Thule. Appears to be mostly original songwriting, skipping around from gospelized rock to groovy now sounds to ragtime pop to soulful moods, all of it heavily nuked in strings and horns. Renditions of ‘Love Lifted Me’ and ‘In The Garden’ are worked in. Those nostalgic for that whole 1969 ‘One Tin Soldier’ pop radio sound might find meaning here. Love the flower power threads. (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.
