Give Yahweh Praise (Film Associates 11123) 1973?
An excellent Catholic folk custom that has much of the charm of the early God Unlimited lps. Nineteen original praise songs written and directed by Bruce F. Giffen. Usually individual singers on the verses with vocal ensemble joining in for the choruses. What really gives the 1p a lift are the electric guitars jamming along with a raw homemade feel, at least one on rhythm and one doing leads. Drums and bongos provide the beat which really gets going on some of these songs. Bass and ﬂute, too. Very much the Catholic folk sound, in this case Marianists gathered in a place called Queen Of Apostles Chapel. Easy to picture this one in the early FEL or World Library line-up. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
