 Rare Chicago-area private press LP with some great mellow folky rock tracks and some awesome funky vamps. As seen in the Acid Archives. …..
Rare album by American band from Chicago (Illinois), issued privately run of 500 copies. The group was founded in 1971, first-year students of the Chicago Concordia University - John Strege, Paul Rogner and Craig Rutz. Interestingly, the group still exists and continues to perform live……
Thought to be from somewhere in the mid-west, their album is vocal harmony garage/pop, with a few barber shop quintet sounds, fuzz guitar, and country rock and Christian moves. The album has plenty going for it. I'd sure love to hear the rest of their catalogue....by....tymeshifter........ 

Synod has always been first and foremost a great dance band and their set lists have consistently featured some of the best contemporary music, yet from the very start they have emphasized songwriting. In 1972 they released their first recording of all-original music titled "Sent To Reconcile," and since then they have continued to write and record dozens of great tunes. 

Selections from their earliest recordings, which originally came out on tape and on vinyl records, both LP and 45 rpm singles on the AMG and Signus labels, have been reassembled in half a dozen limited-release CDs, including "First In Line," "Sent To Reconcile," "Not For Public Consumption," "Learning The Songwriter’s Trade," "Giant In The Basement" and "Early Editions." 

"Without the Picture," "Under-Covered," "Easy Street Sampler" and “For Example” include some originals along with cover-versions and samples of songs from their dance catalog. Synod occasionally threatens to make some new recordings - so watch this space! 

Even after four decades, Synod's play list continues to express itself in a variety of mediums and styles. Click on the images below to see an enlarged picture of the release.
