GLADSTONE - Lookin' For A Smile (1973)
I basically picked this up because I noticed they were covering Tony Hazzard's Got To Be You, Got Be Me. Hey, if they chose to use a Tony Hazzard song (everybody bow down, please), they got to be good, or at least nice. And yes, they are good and nice, and you'll dig them if you like yer pop with acoustic guitars, harmonies not unlike The Eagles and a very pleasant country feel.
After all, as they sing unashamedly, all they want is to share a song and ease your mind for a while. And that is a good thing in my book!
They released two albums as far as I know. This is their second one.
Incidentally, I discovered I had their first s/t album aka ...From Down Home In Tyler, Texas U.S.A. (1972) from someone via slsk long ago (sorry, I can't remember who it was, but thanks!), so why not re-up it for you guys, so you can have both of them? What's this... a bonus?? You bet! A 2on1 kind of a post! Whooohoo!
-right link corrected! - but you did like the LJ57 anyway, didn't you?
