Mylon (Cotillion SD 9026) 1970

 

 

Sometimes sub-titled We Believe, this mainstream release rocked even harder than Larry Norman’s Upon This Rock. While neither achieved significant sales, they found plenty of welcome ears among the rock-starved Jesus people. The Mylon here of course is Mylon LeFevre and those familiar with his ‘80s sound will be surprised at the gritty r&b influenced rock he delivers here, dominated by heavy organ, plenty of female bgvs, and spicy guitar work. Gospelly Southern rock if you will – a natural progression from his Southern gospel roots. In fact the original version of ‘Gospel Ship’ can be found here. Highlight for me is the near 7-minute ‘Peace Begins Within’, a mean mid-tempo funk endeavor. Big hunk 0’ history here as well as fine music. (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.
