Thanks for this Jesus Music/Xian LP

Here's the details, review and track list

MARANATHA - Soon (NJ) (1971) MP3 @320

Although they’re from the opposite end of the country, New Jersey’s Maranatha
has that same long-haired home-grown west-coast guitar psych sound as
Spokane’s Wilson McKinley. In fact I might go so far as to say that Soon is on
equal footing with the classic Spirit Of Elijah — it’s that good. Guitarist Charlie
Rizzo would later emerge with the more Southern-edged Ernrnaus Road Band,
but here the style seems much more garage angled and hippie jamming. Loud
hard-rock electric action on ‘Maranatha’, ‘Resurrection’, ‘Deeper Than The
Mighty Rolling Sea’, and ‘Coming Of The Lord’, while ‘Do You Know My Jesus’,
‘Let Us Rise’ and ‘Amen’ explore more acoustic moods. Some fun lively
“Johnny B Goode’—sty1ed r&r on “I Found Jesus’. An insanely rare private
press and easily one of the top US Christian monsters.
