Working On A Building - Mylon Lefavre

Normally, I'm not one for bible-thumping, christian rock, however when an album is produced by Allen "Can Do No Wrong" Toussaint, and features Little Richard on guest vocals, and Dr. John on piano I'm inclined to look beyond the proselytizing and appreciate the music at faith, err face value. Personally, I'm fascinated by Mylon Lefavre's story - aspiring and auspicious rocker who has a drug overdosing epiphany and devotes the rest his life to preaching gospel (see video below). Regardless, 1972's Over The Influence is a great southern rock record. The religious subject matter can be overlooked because songs like "Working On Building" and  "Waymaker" kick so much ass. There's even an Elvis cover of "Blue Suede Shoes" that's worth a listen. Enjoy.
