Mylon LeFevre - Holy Smoke (1971)



I know some of y'all did enjoy the 1970 album 'Mylon' (also known as 'We Believe'), on which Mylon LeFevre left his straight up Gospel behind in favor of some classic down home Southern Rock. On 'Holy Smoke' he follows up on the promise, and doing so quite well. It's definitely old school/vintage Southern Rock, but it's top of the line. Mylon would continue his Rock & Roll show until the early 80's, after which he committed himself full-time again to Gospel. And leading a ministry of course. What a great voice, though. What a lucky guy God is... Holy smoke!

Thanks, that would be great. Though I would be just as happy if you just send me a raw recording of each side. With megaupload that would be no problem. And I'd be more than willing to do the editing for you. Looking forward to the album.

Any chance of a re-rip at some point? This DL sounds particularly tinny and one-dimensional compared to Over the Influence...

I'll see what I can do. My vinyl isn't that great to begin with. I was kinda hoping someone out there has a cleaner vinyl copy that I could work on... I'll let you know, though.
