Rodney Keith Eskelin, aka Rodd Keith, aka Rod Rivers, aka probably a couple hundred other names, was the hardest working man/music virtuoso in the song poem business.

Unfortunately, this never-before-seen Keith 45 featuring a song about an LSD trip gone awry, is somewhat autobiographical.

Corona Del Mar, California's seminal Jesus People label Destiny is best known for killer xian hippie releases like Harvest Flight and Lilly, but this virtually unknown 1978 LP from New Jersey evangelist Harry Thomas deserves a nod of appreciation too in my opinion.
Featuring backing from fellow Destiny artists The Phoenix Sonshine, Thomas' sublime delivery of songs ranging in style from lighter acoustic ballads to uptempo rock numbers, makes this a real people record a fun listen all the way through.
