Real People – Ordinary Places (Melody MSLP-37) 1974?

 

 

Five-girl two-guy youth outfit doing simple amateur folk covers on their home-made record. They do songs by Leonard Cohen, Kris Kristofferson, John Denver and Peter, Paul & Mary, as well as some spiritual titles like ‘Gonna Sing My Lord’, ‘Battle Hymn Of The Republic’ and served with acoustic guitars, string bass, tambourine and maracas. Somewhere between ordinary and adequate, with not much standing out (save maybe the female solo version of Kristofferson’s ‘Casey’s Last Ride’). Members of Redeemer United Church of Christ in Hamilton, Ohio. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet.
