Larry Hubbell And The Mission Band (Myrrh MST-6500-LP) 1972
According to the catalog number this would be the debut release for the Myrrh label. It’s that familiar early Myrrh blend of rock, gospel, pop and country also found on same-era releases by Gene Cotton, Ray Hildebrand, and Randy Matthews. The more rock-edged tracks have notable fuzz guitar and even a touch of Mylon LeFevre. Female bgvs and pop string arrangements give a definite period feel. Six songs written by Hubbell, four by Wayne White. Back cover says he played piano as a side man for a country-westem singer. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
