“Lonely Faces” By Sammy Tippit (A young 22 year-old Babtist youth evangilist and the President and Founder of “God’s Love in Action” an Evangelistic Association for reaching gangs, militants, runaways, hippies and drug users for Christ.) and the Monroe 7, (vs. the Chicago 7?), (seven young people from Monroe, Louisiana that pushed a wheelbarrow of bibles all the way to Washington, DC, literally spreading the word of god across America.) Rainbow Records. Pretty tricky packaging. This record is like a sheep in wolves clothing.
