Wake Up World (Century USR 6486) 1975?



One of the few I’ve turned up from Nebraska. The girls dominate in this band – three of “em on vocals and guitar and one on drums, leaving the males relegated to piano and bass. This home-made album has a nice mix of jubilant folk-rock movers and heartfelt ballads with endearing harmonies through and through. Parts bring to mind a Matthew-less 2nd Chapter Of Acts circa Footnotes while others flow in the spirit of Godspell’s ‘Day By Day’. Listen to Comic work that drum solo in the middle of ‘Boogie For Jesus’! Most songs written by Janet and Carol Manley. Includes an updated version of ‘Love Of Jesus Christ’ which they performed on Hill Country Faith Festival ’74 (where it was titled ‘Shine In Me’). A truly up-lifting experience. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Discogs for the rear cover photo and Donald for the rear cover photo and the track list.
