Alright, it's gospel-time, ya'll! Well, sort of. This album by Mylon LeFevre is undeniably gospel-related. Hell, he sings over God and all. But don't let that spoil your fun. I won't, and I really love this album. And it's definitely very much Southern Rock!
Mylon's family were The LeFevres, a famous gospel group. But Mylon first needed to put his faith to the test, I guess. So he did the rock 'n' roll thing. And quite good too. This LP, Mylon (also known as 'We Believe'), from 1970 is easily his best. Another nice one is 'Weak At The Knees'. Though that LP cover would scare most any human being off. Since the eighties he's refound his faith, and more so than ever. He's recorded some very slick gospelrock CD's, stuff you really don't need to hear (yes, that's my opinion!) throughout the eighties and nineties. He's now a preacher man. ... have mercy...
I thought this photo was too good to be true. Players on this album are: Mylon LeFevre, Kim Venable, Barry Bailey, Auburn Burrell, Dean Daughtry, Ron Graybeal and Paul Goddard (quite some Atlanta Rhythm Section pickers). The recording engineer was Rodney Mills, the record was produced by Allen Toussaint.
