Consumer Guide by Review Date: 1972-03-02


Black Oak Arkansas: Keep the Faith (Atlantic, 1971) This group isn't even hawking revival--snake oil, that's all. C-

Jo Jo Gunne: Jo Jo Gunne (Asylum, 1971) A hard rock band that digs structure and texture as well as drumming and amplification. Vaguely reminiscent of Layla and Detroit, this also derives from the best of Spirit--namely, "I've Got a Line on You." Hi-high, American pie. B+

The Undisputed Truth: Face to Face With the Truth (Gordy, 1971) Connoisseurs of Motown nouveau find this impossibly slick and fakey, which is just what I like about it. Admittedly, it's nowhere near as good as good Marvin Gaye, but its failures aren't as bathetic, either. B
