Here's an apparently short-lived trio that we'd
like to know more about ...
Signed by Buddah the trio's self-titled 1970 album teamed them with producer
Stan Vincent. Musically "Anthem"
offered up a fairly entertaining mix of commercial pop (the title track) and
slightly more experimental numbers (the extended "Misty Morns").
While it wasn't one of the year's most original offerings, all three members
(guitarist Bartholomew (guess he didn't have a last name), bassist Gregg
Hollister and drummer Bobby Howe), were gifted with decent voices and on
tracks such as "Florida" and "Queen" they displayed a
knack for crafting some pretty harmonies. Not sure who it was, but one of
the three had a voice that sounded uncannily like The Monkees' Michael
Nesmith ("Anthem" and "New Day"). Needless to say, the
album sold roughly ten copies, instantly ending up in cutout bins.
"Anthem" track listing:
1.) Anthem (Bruce Warner) - 2:30
2.) Queen (Gregg Hollister) - 4:00
3.) You're Not So Mean (Bartholomew) - 2:31
4.) Florida (Gregg Hollister) - 4:39
1.) New Day
(Bartholomew) - 2:25
2.) Misty Morns (Gregg Hollister) - 7:30
3.) Ibis (Bartholomew) - 3:06
4.) Child (Gregg Hollister) - 5:11
