The Inside Story Vol. 1 (Destiny D-6606-S) 1973?


Semi-groovy “now sounds” pop that stays afloat with the best of Ralph Carmichael. Probably nothing a psych nut need lend an ear toward, but those who dig a mushy pop moment here and there might relate to these eleven happy co-eds. Carmichael standards aplenty (‘My Little World’, ‘God Can See Us’, ‘Searching Questions’, ‘Reach Out To Jesus’), led by groomed guy/gal harmonies, backed by acoustic and electric guitars, piano, organ, flute, bass, drums, occasional strings, and one instance of trombone. Some friendly fuzz guitar lifting up John Fischer’s ‘Have You Seen Jesus My Lord’. A couple simple acoustic moods, including Larry Norman’s ‘I Wish We’d All Been Ready’ (decent lead guitar). Thick gate-fold cover made to resemble an old book. Produced by Evan Williams of Harvest Flight. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
