He Loves You (Diadem DF 8101) 1971
Here’s an even earlier custom effort that earns a thumbs up mainly for a couple cheesy mild psych moments (unintended I’m sure). Both ‘Amazing Grace’ (to the tune of ‘House Of The Rising Sun’) and the Jonathan & Charles cover ‘Fanatic’ attain that special moment where sweet mellow crooning meets a smooth yet very homemade-sounding blend of electric guitar, ‘60s organ and rim beat. There are also some straightforward folk standards like ‘Early In The Morning’, ‘Very Last Day’ and ‘All My Trials’ that are done fair enough, often presented with a “folk-beat” feel. A couple loungy cocktail piano kind of things. The cheese factor reaches full bloom on the title track, a Christianized swipe of Nancy and Frank Sinatra’s ‘Something Stupid’. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Donald for the rear cover photo and track list.
