Marvelous folkrock private press from longhaired Australian band of Jesus freaks (four guys, one girl). Mostly an acoustic rock format (rhythm guitars, lead guitar, piano, bass, drums), often with folksy instrumentation that includes dobro, mandolin, banjo, honky-tonk saloon piano, congas, mouth harp, washboard and blues harp. Organ fills out and amplifies the sound on cuts like the title track, ‘Jesus Is My Friend’ and ‘Spirit Move Within Me’. Psychsters will immediately be drawn to the standout track ‘Broken Arrow’, a first-rate minor-key mindbender clocking in at 6:36 with psychedelic organ, lengthy electric guitar jamming, and lyrics about letting God be your shield “so the devil’s dart is just a broken arrow”. Also attractive phased guitar decorating ‘We Can Make It With Jesus’. ‘Hear My Cry’, ‘Natural Man’ and ‘Help Me Get Back On My Feet Again’ are all suffused with unplugged rustic blues influences (and a faint glimmer of All Saved Freak Band). The band was part of Truth and Liberation Concern, a group that sought to break out of traditional Christian cultural containment into a New Testament, compassionate, Christ-like life style – like an Australian version of Jesus People USA. A very rare record from Australia’s EMI Custom label, also home to Kindekrist’s excellent Father Songs. (Ken Scott - Archivist)
