No Time Like The Present (World Library FR-1997-SM) 1969?


This is more or less the same outfit that recorded With Skins And Steel and Some Young Carpenter under the name Jack Miffleton. The Group is listed as Neil Blunt, C P Mudd, Tim McAllister and Dennis Cooney (they wrote all the songs), although several others are involved including Skipp Sanders and Nancy Barnes on vocals and Miffleton on guitar. Same lively high-quality ‘60s jangly folk sound as With Skins And Steel, sometimes electric, often with a snappy beat accompanying, energized by crisp male/female harmonies. The title track, ‘Free Child’, ‘People Of Sion’, ‘I Am The Way, You Are The Wanderer’ and ‘Get Up Jerusalem’ all fall into this category. Balanced with a number of moody – acoustic ballads such as ‘St. Francis Prayer’, ‘I Wonder Why’ and ‘Emmanuel’. Fourteen songs in all. Subtitled Songs Which Mirror Our Day. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Ken for the front cover photo and Discogs for the remaining album photos and the track list.
