The Father’s Family Album (Temple Tone 110) 1975?



Notable compilation acoustic album sponsored by a teen ministry called Youthquake at Evangelistic Temple in Houston, Texas. Four artists are featured. Bob, Frank & Mark supply four songs in a quiet edgy folk/acoustic format, recalling Simon & Garfunkel on ‘Thy Loving Kindness’. ‘Emanuel (God With Us)’ and ‘Listen To His Voice’ are performed by a small male group called Manna in a rural acoustic style. Lee Anne Walker contributes two excellent songs (‘Ask And Ye Shall Receive’ and ‘Make A Joyful Noise’) in a female folksinger format not unlike Marj Snyder. And needing no introduction is Barry McGuire with live unplugged versions of ‘It’s A Happy Day’ and ‘Don’t Blame God (For The Sins Of America)’, neither of which appears on his other concert albums. Front cover is decorated with old photographs, arranged like a photo album. (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.
