Artist: AGAPE
Title: Gospel Hard Rock
Format: LP
Label: Agape
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Reissue of Agapes debut LP from 1971; heavy blues psych cooker with a Hendrix sound the brainchild of Californian Fred Caban, who wrote the lyrics, music and supplied the vocals on all the tracks; Agape was at the forefront of the Jesus Movement⿿dubbed by many as Jesus freaks: once high on acid, the Jesus freaks are now high on Jesus⿿and the music shows the effects of both influences; check out the eerie Rejoice which narrates tribulation prophesies against a back-drop of guitar-induced missiles and earthquakes; or Freedom with its layers of effect-laden guitars darting around over a throbbing two-note bass beat, snare drums, and Fred singing a hymn in a different key; took me twenty minutes of looking at the original cover (only on the LP version), to see that it is an abstract image of the face of Christ⿿reportedly a photograph of a natural image of melting snow against a black background."
