Title: My Poor Generation
Format: CD
Label: Hidden Vision
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"first album (1973) by apocalyptic Ohio contingent of talented drug addicts, pastors, activists (Tom Miller of the Kent State 25), and famous musicians turned Jesus Rock band; the main interest in this band is the lead and rhythm guitar playing by Glenn Schwartz, who left the James Gang (whom he joined just after his stint playing guitar on Pacific Gas & Electrics national hit Are You Ready?) because he had accepted Christ as his Saviorthis just after playing for Jimi Hendrix at what turned out to be Jimis last birthday party, and being chosen in a disc jockey survey as one of the worlds top five rock guitarists; when the first words of an album are out of the backwards of the Mississippi Delta, you know your in for something thats not just for Sunday school classes." - MMS.

2006 reissue. "Official reissue of this Christian underground basement psychedelic rock album, a massively-rare 1974 release on the Missouri-based American Artists label (AAS1164), of which only 2 or three copies are known to be exist in private collections. Despite the song titles, this is actually a strange and unusual rock album which just happens to have religious undertones. Organ, fuzz guitar, male and female lead vocals and masses of electronic embellishments. High-quality vinyl transfer, includes two [uncredited] bonus tracks from a later recording session. Previously pirated by Radioactive Records. Some of the most out there psychedelic sounds can be found on this Kansas trios mega-rare custom LP. One of the first Christian groups to tinker with synthesizers and be experimental at the same time. The song, Christian, for example, opens with a Bach fugue before laying in its steady rock beat punctuated with subterranean wah-wah guitar and a wild, heavily modulated synth lead. The song, Wicked, opens side two with a bizarre amalgam of what sounds like synthesized, bubbling lava pits, frequency oscillations, distorted, sci-fi vocals and shortwave, static patterns. This is Christian psychedelia at its most underground and extreme with all the ear marks of a bad drug trip which, given the songs dark subject matter, works just fine. Likewise, What Shall We Do? opens with a lengthy outpouring of some of the most vicious, distorted fuzz guitar ever then relaxes into a spooky, dream-like ballad before it climaxes with a flying saucer effect that sounds straight out of Dark Side Of The Moon. There are several fine and moody garage tracks here as well. Difficult to describe: they are highly listenable and quite creative. Dense echoes lend to the homemade feel of the entire project. A monster for sure with fewer than 500 LPs made at the initial pressing. Duncan Long, the main man behind the synths, guitars and song writing is now a published science fiction author." - Hidden Vision.

"Christian rock/psych/garage ranging from album tracks by well known groups like Agape, Search Party and All Saved Freak Band to singles by more obscure groups such as Concrete Rubber Band and Stonewood Cross; extremely high level of musical quality throughout, with varying degrees of fuzzed up guitar solos on all tracks; theres a message there for those who need it—but otherwise this is just great listening; fantastic Psychedelic Moses cover art. Ken Scott review from his excellent spiral-bound Archivist (Vintage Vinyl Jesus Music, 1965-1980): “All the songs on this album were specifically chosen for their guitar content… some of it mellow and subtle, and some of it mind frying heavy fuzz”. For the budget-minded heres you chance to sample tracks from rare pricey albums by Concrete Rubber Band and The Search Party, plus Agape, Exkursions, The Bridge, All Saved Freak Band, and Way International outfits Selah and Pressed Down Shaken Together & Rolling Over. And if youve already got all those theres a 1967 pre-Agape song (In The Light) and the six-minute stunner Magic Man from the elusive Stonewood Cross single (man, if those guys had only cut an album – yeow!). Neat b&w cover art with Fillmore-styled psych lettering.” -Hidden Visions.
