Roadway To The Son (Rainbow RR-0156) 1978

 

 

Fine album from West Coast folk-rocking guys with strong rural and progressive country angle, other times kind of breezy and upbeat, sofi relaxed harmonies fronting an easygoing melodic America/The Way sound, not to mention a few Deadhead touches (especially ‘Walk Like Jesus’). Basic line-up plus flute, occasional piano or lone synth line. Good electric guitar leads from member Dave Boyd. All ten songs were written by the band, including “Children Of The Harvest’, ‘My Man From Galilee’, ‘Ecclesiastes II’, ‘Filled With The Holy Ghost’ and ‘Victorious In His Love’. Better than most of the bands that did this kind of stuff‘. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
