Truth of Truths – A Contemporary Rock Opera
Yeah, there were a bunch of these “rock opera” records back in the early 70s, but how many can you name with Jim Backus playing the part of God? That’s right, as if Thurston Howell III and Mister Magoo weren’t enough, he also has “Creator of the Universe” to add to his impressive acting resume. The music ranges from your average xian folk to somewhat okay pop & soul (with consistently cheesy vocals). Hal Blaine is listed in the musical credits, (I really enjoy his Psychedelic Percussion album), so I figured I might as well give this one a try. There certainly is some potential on here music-wise, but the singing just gets on my nerves too easily.
