In The Late 20th Century (Deep SRS-1018) 1977?



A small step back for the group’s third lp, mainly due to the periodic brass additives that sometimes direct their sound away from rock and folk toward leisure-th pop. Still a few decent songs with a “Jesus music” vibe and a not-too-refined mix of electric guitar and synthesizer. The best cuts avoid the horns and processed vocals, examples being the ballad ‘The Omnipotent’ (enhanced with Arp and wind-like synth), the boogie-woogie rocker ‘There Ain’t Nothin’ and the bright organ-backed ‘Jesus Set You Free’ (good guitar solo, too). All their own songs, ten in all. (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.
