NEW WINE (San Diego, CA)


"Holy Spirit Express" 1972 (Anodyne)
Unlike most records of this ilk, New Wine is mostly solid with only a couple of weak songs but nothing horrible. The band is basically two guitars, bass, drums and vocals. The band consists of four stoner looking long haired dudes that would look more fitting on a Mothers album than a religious one. Then there's the lead singer: A woman that looks like your stereotypical mom from next door that spends more time in the kitchen than your average Frenchman. Don't let this generation gap between the band and the lead singer fool you into thinking this is some goofy unreal Jesus people record with vocal overkill... Nope, it's quite the opposite! Good vocals similar to Search Party but less powerful, with a touch of maturity in her vocal style. Three of the four guys in the band sing too with an occasional lead part on a couple of songs. As for the music, lots of nice electric guitar including some mild buzzy fuzz leads. The songs have a strong westcoast flavor and somewhat similar to Wilson Mckinley but not as heavy. They do a good version of Spirit Of Elijah, and most people would find this version stands on it's own fairly well when compared to the original. The album's production has a nice garage feel to it too. [JSB]

About the link; it worked with me and I'm not using Firefox.
Probably it could or can be a problem with flameupload.
Anyway.
Merci for this rare album. You're sharing some real gems with us!
