Never Go Back (Unison ULP-075) 1977 Australia *
The group takes a big step further in the direction of ultra-smooth pop, leaving not a hint of folk in their wake. Bigger arrangements, expanded to include instruments like piano, Fender Rhodes, synthesizer, string synthesizer, clarinet, organ, ﬁddle and saxophone, all of it overlaid with smooth glistening male/female harmonies. Sometimes light and jazzy, as on the opening ‘Come Unto Me’ or their cover of Honeytree’s ‘Clean Before My Lord’. The ballads are maximal easy listening incarnate. Other covers include Andrae Crouch (‘Jesus Is The Answer’) and Jimmy Owens (‘We Are Family’). (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
