Top-rate, scarce original LP release from Koinonia, Latter Rain, issued in 1972 by Love Records/Trinity Chapel (LPS-1002). LP is in outstanding VG++ condition, a superb listen, and cover is a solid VG+. Ken Scott is rightfully effusive in his praise of this sublime record in Archivist:
"Five-star guy/gal folkrock custom from seven-person California outfit. The music is primarily acoustic oriented, energized with bass and drums on the rhythm, often adorned with dreamy flute accompaniment. Latter Rain includes joyful upbeat expressions (the title track, â€˜Possess The Landâ€™) as well as gentle acoustic ballads (â€˜Compliments Of Godâ€™, the instrumental â€˜Calling Of The Spiritâ€™). Some of the songs such as â€˜Salvation Has Comeâ€™, â€˜Going Up To Gloryâ€™ and â€˜Victoryâ€™ duplicate the style and charm of Rising Hope, one of my favorite Jesus folkrock groups. Lovely male and female vocals taking turns in the lead, plus some wonderful spirited flower-power harmonies. Female solo ballads like â€˜Servant Be Faithfulâ€™ and â€˜Come Partakeâ€™ bring to mind the beauty of Marj Snyderâ€™s music. The group was based out of Trinity Chapel in Cypress, California. The back cover describes the membersâ€™ various backgrounds: â€œthe dope world, the hippie movement, the goodie goodie, the intellectual â€“ all being brought together by Christ Jesus and Koinonia.â€
