Lord Led (Dean Brown Productions DBP-130) 1972?

 

 

Posed on the cover with 12-string guitar, electric bass and a simple drum kit. the male three-piece Lord Led would seem to hint at a simple primitive acoustic rock sound. That’s more or less the case on this project’s standout track: their cover of Hawkins’ ‘I Heard The Voice’ where the drums are revved up for a nice garage-band flavor (even if it is acoustic). Low-fi folk-with-a-beat covers of Ray Hildebrand’s ‘It’s Free’ and Sonny Salsbury’s ‘Psalm 19’ are presented in straight forward fashion. Several selections, however, tend to be bogged down in crooning lounge-folk, as you might expect on renderings of Ralph Carmichael’s ‘All My Life’ and ‘He’s Everything To Me’. The album’s three original songs also lean in this direction. Piano is dragged in for ‘Oh Happy Day’ as well as a couple others. Overall not a whole lotta meat, but still a semi-interesting keeper. Some fun pics on the back cover showing them set up on a stairwell. California address with liner notes from evangelist Frank Gonzales.    (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
