Truth — Truth

First time reissue on LP!

Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio

Pressed in the U.S.A. at Citizen Vinyl

Back on LP for the first time since its 1970 release! Their sole album boasts members of the Wrecking Crew along with three Motown producers, all experimenting with a commercial psychedelic sound that defined the end of an era. Sitar head-swirlers, sunny, melodic harmonies and a country folk influence all blend together to bring listeners Truth!

Originally signed by People Records, an imprint created by Motown producers Mickey Stevenson, Clarence Paul, and Leon Ware, Truth's debut (and only release) was recorded in Los Angeles in 1970. Giving People Records a rare psych-tinged album to their catalog, their sitar head-swirling "Thoughts" cements a detour in People's typically soul and R&B roster of artists.

Featuring a collection of largely original material, the first few tracks reflect a catchy, folk-rock sound, with tracks such as "Far Out," "Let It Out, Let It In" and "Contributin'" Truth's sound dips into a little of everything, like their dedication to a psycho femme fatale, "Lizzie," which shrieks and squirms into listeners' ears. Or their cover of Stevenson's more religious "Anybody Here Know How To Pray." Truth's cover of Joe South's "Walk a Mile In My Shoes" has a stronger resemblance to The Jefferson Airplane, with a heavier rock sound, all chugging beneath the trio's harmonies.

After the album's release, the band disassembled, leaving this rarely-found album in obscurity until now!
