"Good God", the eponymous 1st (and only) LP from the long since defunct Philadelphia band, is a very cool record. Zeno Sparkles (Larry Cardarelli) was a very tasty guitarist who was augmented by keyboardist and occasional sax player and vocalist Cotton Kent, and the Ransom brothers rhythm section of John on bass and Hank on drums. They did what I think is the definitive recorded version of Frank Zappa's "King Kong" and the remaining tracks are original compositions that straddle rock and fusion. They took their name from a direct response by Captain Beefheart to the question "Can you suggest a name for the band?" during a telephone conversation between Mr. Van Vliet and manager Bill Eib. I had the opportunity to see them open for Beefheart at the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby, PA, which is still an active concert venue, @ 1973 and for Weather Report at Irvine Auditorium on the U of P campus the same year, to give you an idea of the company they kept. As I understand it, they had the material for a second LP on tape in the can, but minimal sales of the debut precluded it's release. I saw them perform many times in a variety of smaller venues in the Philly area between 1970 & 1973 and they were a consistently entertaining and evolving band. My brother actually took guitar lessons from Cardarelli for a period of time in the early '70s and I occasionally worked for the band as a roadie during that time. It is a shame they didn't have more commercial success because I always thought they had a lot of original things to say musically.

I can't give many more superlatives beyond "Wild Bill's" review, except to say (here it comes), GOOD GOD!!!!!! The only bummer is the label, Flawed Gems, is a bootleg label, a good bootleg label to be sure, but the musicians deserve their cut. I have two copies of the original Atlantic album, my play copy, and a mint unplayed copy. The sound quality rivals, if not surpasses, ANY major label release. The art reproduction, including the picture CD, is flawless. I have two other Flawed Gems releases, Mogul Thrash and Eclection. These groups* only made one album apiece as well, and both had official CD releases, but the Flawed Gems versions have superior sound AND live BBC session bonus tracks, again in great fidelity. Their artwork is top notch as well, but lack liner notes except for brief bios on the rear inserts. Grab this quick while you can......GOOD GOD!!!!!!
