"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extensive notes and scores of unpublished photos.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
