Father's Children - Who's Gonna Save The World lp (Numero)


"The first (well, second if you count Promise’s appearance on Home Schooled: ABC’s of Kid Soul) offering from the massive wealth of tapes we discovered in producer R. Hosea Williams’ garage in 2009, Who’s Gonna Save The World is the proper debut of Washington DC’s Father’s Children.

Hailing from the Adams-Morgan neighborhood, in 1973 Nick Smith, Billy Sumler, and Ted “Skeet” Carpenter created a lost document of gritty soul, concerned with its own time and place, stripped of the L.A. gloss that permeated the the group’s own 1979 “debut” for Mercury. Unreleased until now, this true freshman offering is an amalgam of sunny vocal group harmonies, fuzz-guitar solos, shimmering keys, bubbling percussion, spiritual prophecy, and dub experiments.

Who’s Gonna Save The World gets the full Numero treatment, with extensive notes and scores of unpublished photos. Deluxe LP edition includes the bonus 45, “Linda Movement” b/w “Intellect” (the latter side not on the the CD)." - Numero
