The "Now" Sound of the Salvation Army!?!?
Grabbed this outa the Xian junk-box @ a local Waxiteria in Somerville. I honestly didn't have high hopes for it - as religious recordings tend to be painfully quaint no matter what horrors their salacious covers might suggest - but this LP was tracked in Asbury Park in 67', so I figure 'What the Hell'. True to form, most of the LP blows, and not in an empyrean trumpet kinda way. There is, however, on conspicuous holdout...
I don't know which is cooler, the fact that 'Sinkin' is a non-secular cover from 1912', or that a bunch of righteous pimple-pusses manage to desecrate said song right from the opening chord.
Way to go Bennies! Ya gone and made the baby Jesus cry!
