Alive! (1969)


Another excellent lp on the highly collectible Key label - this one a various artists studio compilation featuring five British artists. Best of the bunch is Whispers Of Truth, contributing four tracks and featuring a young Graham Kendrick. Kendrick would go on to release several excellent folk, poprock, and ultimately worship lps, but here he and his band were deep into the electric British Invasion rock sound. Hard to top the loud Yardbirds-ish energy of ‘Reality’ or psychy pop numbers like ‘Psychiatrist’ and ‘Sunday Afternoon With Emily’. All Things New delivers a couple of blues rockers plus a fun beat song ‘Jesus Is Coming Again’, complete with cheesy organ, baritone sax, fuzz guitar, flute, and trumpet, coming off as some kind of bizarre cheap Troggs/Madness clone. Acoustic folk is provided by the duo of Roger and Jan, and The Glorylanders contribute a pair of rousing, more traditional folk numbers (both groups have other full-length albums available). Rounded out by two impassioned poetry readings by Nigel Goodwin, including the original version of ‘First Time I Went To Church’ done in a strong Cockney accent while a church organ softly plays. You may be familiar with the version on Larry Norman’s Street Level. 45 glorious minutes of solidly British-sounding early Jesus music. (Ken Scott - Archivist)
