You Can Experience (FourMost FM7017CS) 1972?



To their advantage the husband and wife team of Steve and Maria Gardner has more of a folky Jesus music sound than most of the FourMost lineup. Still kind of a hit and miss affair, but overlooking those three muzaky Larry Mayfleld-orchestrated tracks there’s a fair sampling of light electric folk and pop covers (such as ‘Hymn’ and ‘I Wish We’d All Been Ready’), a couple with a cool low-tech basement vibe (especially the crude electric guitar, organ and drums on ‘Where Will It End’). Later albums evolved into hyper easy listening. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
