Mylon LeFevre - Over The Influence (1972)



Praise the Lord. Here we have the third Mylon LeFevre album (of his R&R career, that is) courtesy of Nozmokinh. I had been looking for this album quite some time and I'm really grateful for this.
This pretty much picks up where "Holy Smoke" left off. Though some might argue it's slightly less of a Southern Rock album as the previous two. But the man has such a beautiful voice, and the music is soulful and warm, that it will grow on you no matter what. Again there's a little bit of everything: Rock, Soul and obviously Gospel influences. He even does "Blue Suede Shoes", though why he does it, is beyond me. The vinyl does suffer from listenable crackle, though when played on the home stereo set this was not a problem at all.
Well, enough already! Mylon was a great Southern Rock singer before he returned to being a Gospel icon. There aren't too many albums of Mylon doing this kind of music, so enjoy this. Thanks Nozmokinh! For the record...

'Working on a Building' rocks my world over & over, Mylon was a bad-ass blues/rock singer back in the day.
